Is Fox News Evil or Stupid?

August 25th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve been focusing a lot on Fox News lately, but this clip from Monday night’s Daily Show is too good not to share:

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c
The Parent Company Trap
Daily Show Full Episodes Political Humor Tea Party

Fox News plays guilt-by-association at every possible turn, and now they’ve been playing the game with Imam Rauf to make the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque” seem sinister. They tie him to the Saudi prince Alalweed bin Talal without mentioning the name of the prince, lest any of their viewers actually look him up and discover that he owns 7% of News Corp. (the second largest share behind Rupert Murdoch), the company that owns Fox News.

If the Ground Zero Mosque is a sinister terrorist plot because you can follow some of the money back to a Saudi prince, then by Fox News’s own logic, Fox News is a sinister terrorist plot as well!
