Riiiggghhhhtttt


I think all these threads should be relabeled "How Jon Stewart exposed Fox News"

For all the Fox apologists:
1. the Prince discusses his involvement on Charlie Rose
2. the Prince is involved directly in the company enough to have opinion as to the heir of the Murdoch empire.
3. the board of Directors, while he is not on it, goes to him for meetings.
4. the Prince and Murdoch have worked out a deal to bring News Corp to the Middle East, proving he is not a random investor but at the very least a personal business associate of Murdoch, not the same as if I bought shares in the open market.

All of these facts can be viewed on this thread honestly I am too tired right now to continually post the same references on multiple threads.

News Corp is a publicly traded company open to a myriad of investors.

The mosque/community center, however, does not pull its investors from a public pool.

Mind you, I'm not against the mosque (from a legal perspective) at all, I just don't think shareholders and their respective investments (regardless of the amount of shares held) should be held liable to one another.

Let me put it this way.

I am a shareholder in Walmart--albeit not a big or important one by any stretch of the imagination. I'm in Walmart because over the years it's been a fairly sound investment and about as "safe" as a stock gets and it pays a decent dividend if the stock isn't growing (around two and a half percent). Walmart and I have a strictly shareholder-company financial relationship though as I can count the number of times I've been in one in the past five years or so on one hand.

As far as Walmart goes, outside of our little financial deal we've got going, I could care less for them and would be fine if they disappeared tomorrow and were replaced by something else.

Likewise, while I'm not a huge fan of environmental issues and the like, if there was what looked to be a sound investment in the "green" market, I'd be there in a moment. Like it or not, Fox News is a huge business and if it attracts shareholders that don't necessarily agree on standpoints and philosophies, well, that's capitalism at its finest.


While nobody said Fox is responsible for its parent company shareholders (Besides, you know, Fox, in the Case of the King Foundation donating Money to Park51), i frankly don't believe you as to this innocent Investor/company relationship.
It becomes rather obvious if you think some other examples:
If it was possible and legal and the ROI was good enough, would you invest in:
Abortion Clinics?
Brothels?
The KKK?
Child Pornography?
Suicide Bombers?

Tony Cartalucci's article The "Ground Zero Mosque:" Why you should really be angry provides an in-depth report on the funding sources for the mosque that will be known officially as Cordoba House. He makes it clear that the mosque is being funded and built by the very people who profited from the destruction of the WTC. The clear conclusion based on the supporters and the timing is that this project will serve the elite's agenda to refocus Americans on the "shock and awe" of 9/11 and the "threat" of Islam in the runup to the elections, as well as the buildup to new wars in Iran, North Korea, Yemen, Somalia, etc.



Feisal Abdul Rauf's membership in the CFR along with the various globalist foundations funding the ASMA and Cordoba Initiative point to the building of the Cordoba House as a deliberate and provocative move by the globalist elite to create more fear, anger, and hatred towards Muslims while expanding the manufactured "clash of civilizations."




Angry Americans will continue viewing Islam as an irrational, omnipresent enemy constantly menacing them. They will continue to believe that war and the erosion of their own natural rights are the only answers to this manufactured crisis. In reality the global elite that compose the CFR are consolidating their control over humanity. They realize the effect of 9/11 on America's psyche is fading and they sincerely hope that by building the provocative Cordoba House, emotions and ignorance will rule the day and their wars and crimes will carry on in earnest, completely justified in the minds of the witless masses.





Below is a list of a few of the CFR's corporate members.

www.cfr.org...

Bank of America
Goldman Sachs
Chevron Corporation
Exxon Mobil Corporation
General Electric Company
JPMorgan Chase & Company
Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.
Lockheed Martin Corporation
Morgan Stanley
Shell Oil Company
Rockefeller Group International, Inc.
The Blackstone Group L.P.
Boeing Company
DynCorp International
KBR
Raytheon Company
Rothschild North America, Inc.

Many of these corporations have made trillions of dollars from the Iraq and Afghan wars, some even played integral parts in calling for the wars. Two of which, Veritas' DynCorp and KBR are in the top ten list of corporations profiting from the war in Iraq.




If the public can be played right, they all stand to make trillions more with an invasion of Iran, the subsequent rebuilding of its shattered infrastructure and the seizure of their southern oil fields. The Bill of Rights being repealed in the wake of this "war on terror" and justified with this continued "clash of civilizations" has enabled the various bankers on the above list to loot America and Europe with impunity and neutralize those who rise up in protest as "domestic terrorists."


Tony's message needs to be widely distributed. As one commentator mentioned on another forum, the public need to welcome this mosque with open arms. Recognise who's funding it and why and defeat them in this particular battle.

ofcourse this is no surprise-if the story is true. what is true is fox news is truly judgemental and hypracritical to a point where they turn off republicans that want to be informed not brain washed-now theres a judgement call.

You continue to forget that this guy is not a partner of murdochs because he has purchased shares on the open market, but because he is FRIENDS with Murdoch!

And yet fox and friends rails against the guy who owns 7% of them..... Yet they never name him on fox and friends, because they know this.... They are only interested in ratings.... So the fact the guy is murdochs partner in many ventures only plays in so much as to not name him.

I will have to say that it does creates a lot of controversy . . . now while Prince Alwaleed bin Talal al-Saud of Saudi Arabia owns only 7% of News Corp.'s shares he still the second largest holder and let no forget that Murdoch sold 17.5 million class A shares in December 2007 and we don't know to whom . . .

Surprise, surprise.
