Scandal rocks Fox News over Saudi terror link

February 9, 2015

Fox News Correspondent James Rosen reported on Wednesday night that a “major investor in the parent company” of Fox News has been implicated in financing the terrorist group al-Qaeda. Rosen made the embarrassing disclosure in a story on the channel’s “Special Report” show hosted by Bret Baier.

The alleged al-Qaeda financier, Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, is a very close friend of Rupert Murdoch and his family, who control major media companies like News Corp and 21st Century Fox. The latter is now the parent company of the Fox News Channel.

The second largest shareholder in the Fox News parent company after the Murdoch family, Alwaleed has been addressed as “Your Highness” during his appearances on the network. His recent appearances have made him sound moderate, while denouncing Islamic extremism and the ISIS terrorist group.

    Watch NewMax it’s better but it’s not the whole truth either. But much better than this terrorist channel FOX NEWS CHANNEL

  • bobnstuff says:

    Isn’t Fox News a terrorist group? They try to create terror in their viewers minds. Fear is their stock and trade. The government is coming to get you!

      Yes it’s sooooooooo much better to watch the other stations that tell lies OR tell NO real news ! You might not care what is news but others do !It is sad to think the only way the American people can get some real news is to watch a station partly funded by the very people who want us dead ! we can like you want watch stations under thumb of commie lib government who think we are to stupid to see a lie when it’s told ! For me I don’t think so !

        You don’t do much fact checking do you? Fox is like a base ball batter, they get it right 30% of the time. I’m a news junkie . I read 6 newspapers a day and get emails from everyone from the RNC to the DMC. I read the bills as they are written and listen to the whole speech so trust me Fox isn’t the news. They even admitted in a court of law that they weren’t news but entertanment.

          Yes, we can tell what you read. How is your comprehension?

            Thank you ! : )

            Have you contributed ANYTHING to any conversation you’ve participated in, other than just the fluff and empty name calling? Any facts? Do you have any concrete ideas, or are you just reacting to other peoples’ statements. Actually, you’re just like a lot of typical Texans – all show and no go. Might you be a former beauty pageant contestant from Texas?

          3. gavinwca says:

            She can say nothing and have more FACTS than a hundred of your post’s combined.

          4. I Seigel says:

            Another riveting post from gavinwca. Wow! I always look forward to your meaningful insights. Little nuggets of solid gold.

            Well, looking over your posts just in this thread here, I’d say you remind me of a cartoon character that just makes little wiseass comments every now and then but doesn’t really say anything meaningful. Or like Lou Costello, just a dummy trying to find his way. Or Curly. So have at it. You’re quite entertaining, in a rather tiresome way. Just don’t get hit over the head, like a Whack-a-Mole popping off his mouth.

        2. gavinwca says:

          So you never get out of your mothers basement.

        3. old broad says:

          Hummmm, 30% of the time news is 100% better than NEVER MENTIONING it !

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Do you think that maybe the reason it’s not mentioned is because it didn’t happen or the story is different
            because the real facts are different then those on Fox. And I did say that 30% of the time they aren’t completely lying.

      2. I Seigel says:

        So what you’re saying here is that you are too smart to believe the lies that the “liberal media” dishes out, and you prefer the lies that terror-funded Fox dishes out because those lies more agree with your world view? You’d never even consider changing your world view, seeing how you’ve been manipulated all along by lies.

        1. old broad says:

          PLEASE do not judge me by you ! Yes I have a world view and it’s not seen through the eyes of the commies ! Live standing tall not on my knees head bowed !

          1. I Seigel says:

            If it sounded like I was judging you, I apologize. I’m simply trying to understand your point of view. It’s good that you don’t have a world view as “seen through the eyes of the commies”. You sound like you’ve been around long enough to know some of the history of WW2 and the Cold War? Then let me ask you: do you know who the “commies” were fighting during WW2? They were fighting their opposites, the fascist Nazis. So if you don’t have a world view “as seen thru the eyes of the commies”, is it fair to ask if your world view is seen and shaped through the eyes of the fascist Fox News? Because that’s the opposite of “the commies”.
            [You can’t be both a commie and a fascist, as much as the dolts around here like to accuse Obama of being both – a far leftist and a far rightist!]

          2. bobnstuff says:

            Do you even know what a communist is? Just because Rush says it doesn’t make it fact. Just so you know the
            President is a moderate, centralist not a socialist as Fox would have you believe.

          3. gavinwca says:

            She knows what a commie is, if you would look in the mirrow you would get the perfect description.

          4. bobnstuff says:

            I see a capitalist when I look in a mirror. You do know what that is I hope.

          5. old broad says:

            bobnstuff, How about you read Barack Obama and the Communist Party I Since you just listen to Rush ( since you know every thing he said !) Or only watch FOX ! ( since you know they only tell lies ! You probably never heard of them !

          6. bobnstuff says:

            I looked into this claim a while back, He went to a meeting while in college, He was studying political
            science, this doesn’t make him a communist anymore the my going to a John Birch Society meeting while in college makes me a Birch-er. If you check the facts with reliable sources you will find that most of what Fox says about the President is false or twisted so as to give
            you the wrong idea.

          7. bobnstuff says:

            What do you now about I found the site but can’t find anything about it or who owns it.

            If you read Trevor’s Bio you will see
            that he has an agenda. He is very right wing. He is chasing the red menace. One should always read the bio if you are going to put faith in their work.

          10. Jennifer Dunn says:

            You really like telling people to do what you’re not doing. Why can’t they judge you. You judge them and call them commies. By the way, Jesus says to be on your knees. Why do you hate Jesus so much?

    2. ATexasGirl10 says:

      Obama plants more fear by his speeches than anything. His policies scare most Americans beyond belief. At least Fox has two sides of the story.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        Most Americans support the President, that’s why he was elected twice. If you got real news you might see that. Fox twists the facts to suit their needs instead for to inform the viewers. If you did fact checking you would see that, but Fox counts on you to remain blind. If you believe they care about the truth then I feel sorry for you.

        1. gavinwca says:

          Aren’t you tired of your mothers basement yet.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            You are rude and not very original. I guess I have to excuse you though since all you know you learn from
            Fox News and that means you are brain dead or not very bright.

          2. Gnowark says:

            bobbinstuff: Do YOU really believe that ANY news is unbiased? Do you really believe that (only you, apparently) know the truth? Do you really believe that you are able to see truth when deception is rife? Well, you’re in luck! I have this bridge in Brooklyn that I’m not using anymore, and I want to move to Florida, so I HAVE to sell it cheap…

          3. bobnstuff says:

            No news is unbiased. That’s why I read a number of papers and try to piece together the truth. I check facts over and over to understand and learn. I go to primary sources when I can. I have found that Fox is the worst broadcast news station when it comes to out right lies and half truths. The longest I have ever
            watch them with out a lie or half truth is 8 minutes. Rush hasn’t even done that good. What I can’t understand is how Rush got to be believed as he has. Doesn’t anyone ever check him out. He is a ex
            rock n roll DJ from Pittsburgh. He got his start at WIXZ in East McKeesport, a station that reminds me of WKRP. I worked at the station a few years after he was there. He went on to work at the big
            Rock n Roll station in town at the time KQV. He will do anything for ratings. His education is one term in college. This is the guy you defend.
