Vanity: Fox NOT Covering Saudi National Story?
TownHall ^

Posted on 04/22/2013 11:05:15 AM PDT by ConservativeMan55

This morning Todd Starnes had a report on the Saudi National that Beck referenced during his show.

Within the hour that report was pulled. I think we all have an idea of why it was pulled.

Drudge has re-linked the story to Starnes Townhall.com piece.

I know Fox hosts and personalities read FR, so it's helpful to put this out there. Plus.. I know of other threads where Freepers have posted Fox contact information and numbers.

Fox is like our Firewall. If we can get them to cover it then it'll force others to begin to as well!

If this was pulled for the reasons we think it was then I’d be embarrassed to work at Fox.

That would be embarrassing for me as a journalist.

It is bad when a major news organization is owned by bad people. When it is owned by America’s enemies, how do we trust them?

Get Fox News to cover radical Saudis? Might as well try to get Al Jazeera to cover them. Not going to happen.

The huge influence of Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal a huge investor in Newscorp/Fox, is likely the main reason for this pathetic and shameful Fox News non-covergage.

It’s shameful. It sucks. But what are they gonna do?

Fox hosts and personalities can’t quit.. that wouldn’t help their cause.

They are just kinda stuck.

It’s really frustrating!

This is why it’s important to call your Cable company/Dish, etc and tell them to carry the Blaze!!!

Soooo very important!

It depends on who they are. It may help their cause somewhat.. but where do you go from there?

Then they have no voice whatsoever!

Not everyone there is making lots of moolah and can afford to just quit. But I understand where you are coming from.

Google Results For: Saudi Ownership of Fox News About 2,560,000 results (0.29 seconds) Fox is not our friend.

Alwaleed owns the largest chunk of News Corp. stock outside the Murdoch family. Shortly after his purchase of 5.5 percent of News Corp. voting shares in 2005, Alwaleed gave a speech that made it clear just what he had bought. As noted in The (U.K.) Guardian, Alwaleed told an audience in Dubai that it took just one phone call to Rupert Murdoch -- "speaking not as a shareholder but as a viewer," Alwaleed said -- to get the Fox News crawl reporting "Muslim riots" in France changed to "civil riots."

As a person who has not had television since 1997 but is exposed to it from time to time, I need to inform everyone that Fox is NOT conservative.

"The huge influence of Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal a huge investor in Newscorp/Fox, is likely the main reason for this pathetic and shameful Fox News non-coverage."

Of Course, and Bin-Talal’s patronage of Barack Obama, beginning with Occidental has lots to do with all of US policy decisions, from the Green Energy scam, designed to keep us dependent upon Saudi oil, to the military involvement of the US in overthrowing every Middle Eastern nation not yet controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood to the attempt to thwart the first and second amendments to make the enforcement of Sharia law easier. Our Media are already Sharia compliant, as is our military and most of our judicial system.

Even if the story were false, a story with this much importance warrants significant coverage if only to give the reasons it has been disproved.

Hmmm, there is a copy of the 212.3B event which would give an HONEST person the impression that at one time, right or wrong, the government at its highest levels thought this guy was the baddest of the bad and after a Kerry/Saudi, and bHo/Saudi, and a First Wookie/Saudi meeting this 212.3B went from public enemy #1 (which essentially a 212.3B is) to a “person of interest”, then to a “witness”, then to a “victim” and now we don’t know if he is on his way back to the land of camel jockies without an in depth investigation.

We must demand from our government and media the truth.

True. American Thinker had an article today on BHO being an empty suit.

May be of interest to you.

Perhaps I missed the explanation, but when I tuned back in to Beck’s radio show, Glenn was missing and it was just his sidekicks doing the show. Did they say where he went?

I get so sick of the dishonesty and coverups by those who can. What happened to reporting and letting us decide? This hiding of information; both Muslim against the world and black on whit mob violence is making the country more dangerous not less.

It is like taking down sharp turn warning sign because it might scare someone.
