Is Fox News tilting toward the Arabs?
american thinker ^ | 3/17/10 | Jed Gladstein

Posted on 03/17/2010 9:06:45 AM PDT by Nachum

I wondered how long it would take after Saudi money was insinuated into Rupert Murdoch's empire before anti-Semitism hit the Fox News airwaves in the form of tug-at-your-heart, pro-Arab, mini-hit pieces against the State of Israel. It didn't take long.

Did anyone notice Shepard Smith's passionate rant against Israel on behalf of the Palestinian Arabs a few days ago? I always thought Smith was just a smarmy, jock-type teeny-bopper. But he obviously knows which side his bread is buttered on, and he is fully capable of getting all lathered up over something about which he is absolutely ignorant.

Today on Fox News, Amy Kellogg did another hit piece on Israel, using a cute little heart-strings-tugger about the peaceful Syrian civilians who picnic on the Golan Heights in nostalgic longing for the times when it belonged to Syria. Of course, there was no mention of the carnage and slaughter inflicted on peaceful Israeli citizens when the Syrians were in charge of the Golan. Apparently, there's no nostalgia in that.

This is nonsense.
Shep is a flaming liberal who hates Israel and goes on frequent leftwing rants.
This is nothing new.

I can’t even watch Shep. I think it’s more personality driven that a bias one way or the other. Krauthammer and the rest of the panel on Bret are very pro Israel (except Juan).

Fox News is not a conservative news newtwork. It is to the right of CNN but CNN US is to the right of CNN Europe.

It’s a matter of degrees.

Fox has some conservative commentators and some stuffed shirts and some liberals all who provide commentary. But commentary isn’t news.

I am leery of all of the Arab money pumped into Fox, too.

That said, I am leery of anything Arabs are up to. If Fox begins to take the form of an “American Al-Jazeera” - they just wrote their own epitaph.

Check to see who owns 7% of Fox. Check to see who the owner of Fox backed in the UK (Blair). Blair successfully opened the borders and Islamified the UK.

Fox is better than the other scum networks but cannot be trusted.

My first clue was Beck calling Geert Wilders just maybe a bit fascist and then the entire Special Report panel taking out after him. Prince Altalweed wants his money’s worth.

The whole world will turn against Israel. Zechariah 14 is clear. And what happens is also clear in that chapter.

Is Fox News tilting toward the Arabs?

It is not so much a tilt, as a bow. Possibly leading to a full blown kowtow or grovel. There have also been reports of obsequious sniveling.

Another one bites the dust. FoxNews moved their ME headquarters to Dubai; where there is no freedom of the press, freedom of speech or freedom of religion.

On this subject, Walid Shoebat said recently that he and Robert Spencer and Brigitte Gabriel (critics of Islam) are no longer invited to commentate on Fox. Has anyone seen them on Fox recently (or even Steve Emerson)? I haven’t watched it enough recently to be a very good indicator.

To all who rant against Fox for being "pro-Israel. "anti-Israel", "too liberal", "pro-Arab", "anti-Christian", "pro-this" and "anti-that"......start your own damned network.

Consider where the conservative voice would be heard on TV if Fox did not exist. Coming up with a short list, are you? Of course you are.

Nobody can ever agree with everything they hear/see on any network...hell, if the RNC had a network half of us would piss and moan about their RHINO-slanted news.

Be glad Fox does exist, along with Rush, Hannity, Boortz, Levin and many others. They all give us comfort in knowing we are not fighting alone; they all deserve our support, for without it they may well be silenced by the beast that has us trapped in the wilderness.

Sheepherd Smith is a dunce. He doesn’t need an incentive to show his ignorance.

Well said - some things about Fox I disagree with, but I can’t imagine having to get news anywhere else.

Fox is and will continue to be right of center thank our Christian God.

Lets face it, Saudia Arabia and their oil rich Muslim Brothers own a wholelot more of the U.S. and British assets than any of us can imagine.

We need to dump the stupid liberals in the U.S. and start an all out in country and off-shore drilling for oil, which is there, and tell the Arabs to take a hike.

Other then for talkradio and the internet, I do watch Foxnews, not as much as I used too, but as you said, there is not many options out there.

To all who rant against posters expressing political and social analysis of the news of the day, government, corporate and societal institutions - on a forum founded for that purpose......start your own damned forum.

When it comes to major news companies, there is not one we can trust. Our founders never envisioned a day like this.

Did anyone notice Shepard Smith

Nope.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

I think Murdoch has a 7% interest in a saudi news organization. Maybe he’s planning on playing the same games as the saudi’s. Infilterate the “enemy” so you can influence their media. Just a thought!

Maybe we could get Brett Baier to ask BO if he would be willing to give some pointers on how to bow and gravel to the islamic umma.

LOL

Well B.H.O. is the man who put the B in bow, the H in humiliating and the O in obsequious.
