New slogans for FOX!
So let me get this straight. An Australian and a Saudi Prince together have 52% shareholder control of FOX News.

(Yes, I know, Murdoch bought himself an American citizenship to qualify under certain FCC rules to own an American television network.)

You know, if I wanted to destroy the United States of America, as a short-term goal I couldn't think of a more insidious way of doing it than deliberately agitating the one group that believes, more fiercely than any other, that it is America, into an anger so powerful and irrational that it poisons any possibility of reasonable political discourse. As long-term insurance, I would also attempt to empower that group to undermine the essential education needed to compete in the 21st century, that in the biological sciences (and by extension, all sciences).

How should we spin this? Hmmm...

FOX News: Controlled From Overseas.

FOX News: The Treason Network

FOX News: Useful Idiots For Powerful Foreign Interests

Fox News: Undermining Democracy Since 1985.

Do you have a link about this?

Kingdom Holding Company is 94% owned by Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz, according to Wikipedia. The company's shares in News Corporation work out to about 7%.

News Corporation is 45% owned by Wendi and Rupert Murdoch.

Note that Wendi was originally born in mainland China. China does not allow people to repudiate their nationality, so you could say that Fox is controlled by Australian, Saudi, and CHINESE nationals.

On a totally unrelated topic, despite Osama bin Laden and 15 of the 19 hijackers associated with 9/11 being Saudi Arabian, a February 2005 Harris poll showed that 46% of U.S. adults believed that Saddam Hussein was behind the attacks, and 44% of U.S. adults believed that some of the hijackers were Iraqis.

Re:

Do you have any data as to if the 5 years between then and now have made any inroads on that number?

Re:

I really hope it's changed a lot since then, but I'm too scared to look.

I'm also scared to see what the new Texas history textbooks say about it.

I've been saying this about Fox for years, and nobody who listens to their lies believes me. Fucking morons.
