Is Fox News Evil or Stupid? Jon Stewart Investigates

In the comments, NOTAL tips us off to this hilarious Daily Show clip where the crack team at Fox “follows the money” regarding the Ground Zero Vicinity Almost Mosque.

Incidentally, I wanted to be sure the Fox team was as dumb (or evil?) as Stewart et al. were implying. But yep, the guy who tried to give Giuliani $10 million after 9/11 was indeed Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who is also head of the Kingdom Holding Company.

And who also owns a nice chunk of Fox News, at least since 1997.

    Fox News should have disclosed Alwaleed’s mutual fund size stock position in their corporate parent. If memory serves, was it not the selfsame Alhaweed who funded Georgetown University’s Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding? Does this put the Jesuits behind the GZ Mosque….
