    It doesn't. It was just such a great opportunity; when someone calls a site "half-baked" then turns around and posts the same news a day later, I just couldn't help myself:D It's fun pointing some things out. ;)

    I was more referring to the topic... its like it infers that Fox News is the vast right wing conspiracy, then whole conspiracy hates the mosque and therefore its ironic that a shareholder contributed to it. If we are reading deep into things, I'd say Fox might be MORE fair and balanced as its key shareholders are diverse...

    Yeah i know just because a major stock holder of Fox news gives money to fund the Mosgue that it (Fox news) "Talal blamed U.S. policy in the Middle East for the 9/11 attacks" The Prince has also funded books on Islamic missionary work. So i know what you mean how could there be any connection.

    So intheir reporting have they been biased towards the Ground Zero Mosque? Or have they been even handed? Or have they been baised against the wishes of their investor?

    Jon Stewart has had a couple spots on this as well.

    As for the "so what?" that's actually part of the point he has made -- that a lot of the talking heads draw conclusions based on connections that don't necessarily mean a thing, and they do so repeatedly and visibly... yet the same connections exist with fox itself.

    Well, the investor isn't directly involved with Fox, he's partnered with Newsmax who owns Fox among other things. Raw Story:

    The partner is a Saudi whose favorite charity is as above, a project sponsored by Rauf.

    Why conservatives with all of their ranting against terrorism etc. aren't currently screaming for an invasion of Saudi Arabia is beyond me. (Oh wait...its $$$ and oil...I get it) They flew planes into our buildings killing thousands, own our presidents, pollute our land and gouge our citizens. Infact, the Bin-Laden strife with the US comes form the fact that The Saudis employed US troops instead of the Mujahadeen to defend Kuwait....for real.

    They could probably start funding abortions, and neo-cons would be cool with it.

    Our presidents bow and kiss the Saudis' hand (both parties, it's not a partisan issue really? nad obviously the Saudis are funding the Muslims so in reality it's not one vs the other) but I agree with you otherwise. People just refuse to see anything but what the media tells them to look at.

    LND,

    you know I'm usually partisan on presidential stuff...and most things, but I meant no party when I was talking about them owning our Presidents, Obama, Bush, Bush, and Clinton included.

    Its absolute crap.

    follow the money, and you'll find the evil.

    Got it and now I agree with you 100%:p The media's owned too. Imagine how much power lies in the hands of people most of us have never even heard of.

    Irony is often lost of those who exhibit pavlovian responses... it is interesting when the right turns on themselves and eats their young.

    Ah but when the left does it, it's because you're full of "diverse" opinions and it only "strengthens" the conversation...
