So the second largest owner of Fox "News" is up on rape charges in Spain, will that news air on Fox News?
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the Saudi crown princes, is the second largest owner of News Corp (Rupert Murdochs company) and hence second largest owner of Fox News. He is being charged in Spain with the rape of a young model back on 2008. He is one of the richest men on the planet (#26 in Forbes Magazine last year), and also owns a huge chunk of Citigroup. This has got to be at least as big of news as former IMF president Strauss-Kahn being accused of rape several months ago.
A few years ago Fox News did a report about a seedy benefactor who owned a group called the Kingdom Foundation, who were supporting the “Ground Zero Mosque” and supposedly had connections to terrorist groups. Fox never said the name of the benefactor, because as it turns out the benefactor was Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the second largest owner of Fox News. It led the Daily Show to make a sketch (Is Fox News Evil or Stupid??) and me to post the same question here…... http://www.fluther.com/94755/as-asked-on-daily-show-last-night-is-fox-news-stupid/ .
My question is this. This is big news. Do you think it airs on Fox News, or do they ignore it since the person in question owns them?
(worth noting I don’t watch Fox News, so I do not know if this has run already)
