I am a peaceful person for the most part - the whole "Fox News" subject really strikes a chord with me. I cannot think of a more harmful organization to our democracy than Fox News. A corporate terrorist cell within our own borders.
Now think about this... I tried to explain to my friend that Fox News is not even an American company! Murdock is Australian and his largest investor is Saudi. He wouldn't hear of it. "No effin' way!!", he said.
Well... read 'em and weep: Saudi billionaire eyes new links with News Corp
CAIRO – The Saudi billionaire whose investment firm is one of the biggest
stakeholders in Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. said he is looking to expand his
alliances with the media giant, in the latest indication that his appetite for
growth remains robust even as his company retrenches.
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a nephew of the Saudi king and who was
listed last year by Forbes as the world's 22nd richest person, met with News
Corp.'s chief executive Rupert Murdoch on Jan. 14 in a meeting that "touched
upon future potential alliances with News Corp.," according to a statement
released by his Kingdom Holding Co. late Saturday.
Kingdom Holding's statement said Alwaleed is already the second largest
stakeholder in News Corp., with 5.7 percent of the shares of the media company.
The stake is held through Kingdom Holding, in which Alwaleed holds a 95 percent
OK - so the facts are the facts but the fingers in the ears Repugs are in deep denial.
How about some Paul Krugman standing up to Roger (Jabba the Hut) Ailes on ABC?
And with the latest ruling from the SCROTUS.. Ailes and Alwaleed bin Talal will have even more power over our electoral process.
OUTLAW Fox News now. Just do it.
