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.
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.
Bank of America
Exxon Mobil Corporation
General Electric Company
JPMorgan Chase & Company
Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.
Lockheed Martin Corporation
Shell Oil Company
Rockefeller Group International, Inc.
The Blackstone Group L.P.
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."

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.
