Caught! Fox News Funding 'Terror Mosque' at Ground Zero

Jon Stewart catches Fox News in the lie of the century.

(CINCINNATI ) - Jon Stewart demands that Americans stop watching Fox News as the only way to cut off the revenue stream to “these bad dudes.”

The Kingdom Foundation, funder of the Ground Zero Mosque is run by Alwaleed bin Talal, the largest shareholder in Fox News.

Fox News owner Alwaleed bin Talal, who, according to Fox News, has ties to terrorist organizations and the Iranian government, also owns, of course, Fox News and pays the salaries of those who say the man funding the Ground Zero Mosque is a terrorist.

What Fox News fails to mention is that the terrorist they are speaking of is their owner, Alwaleed bin Talal.

Fox news sees no inconsistencies in openly accusing their ownership of direct associations with terrorist organizations and in doing so, tying themselves and their news department directly to terrorism.

Which Fox News owner has Fox News
accused of funding terrorism?

Fox analysts point out that Alwaleed bin Talal and his Kingdom Foundation have funded extremist organizations that have endangered the American people and helped foster world terrorism.

The “Terror Prince”, HRH Alwaleed bin Talal, cited by Fox News as supporting radical Islam and fomenting the growth of terrorist organizations, personally runs the Kingdom Foundation charity funding the “Ground Zero Mosque” in addition to his co-ownership of Fox News/News Corp with Israeli-American investor Rupert Murdoch.

In addition to funding the “Terror Mosque” as referred to by Fox News, the prince also has funded The James Baker III Institute at Rice University.

Fox has not yet cited the insititute or Mr. Baker for ties to terrorist organizations.

This is one of the rare occasions on which we have to agree with Fox News.

Hannity linked directly to site listed as 'Terrorist' by Fox News

Investigators following the “News Corporation” link on the Kingdom Foundation site were flabbergasted to find Sean Hannity among the individuals with direct ties to the group funding the “terror mosque” at Ground Zero.

Hannity has, for weeks, been leading the “Where’s Waldo” search for the “evildoers” behind the funding of the Ground Zero Mosque.

Mr. Hannity has not been available for comment since it has been revealed that the ownership and sponsors of, not only his own show but his other media efforts as well are the “terrorist evildoers” he claims to have been seeking.

Kingdom Foundation Investment Holdings

The map below outlines the investment holdings of the organization accused by Fox as supporting terrorism.  Among their holdings are Citibank and Four Season Hotels.  Fox News has yet to cite CitiBank or accuse its 300,000 employees of ties to terrorism. Other holdings include Ebay, Apple, Hewlett Packard, Motorola Corporation, Time Warner, Disney, Ford Motor Company, Proctor and Gamble and PepsiCo.

If FOX NEWS believes President Obama is a Muslim Terrorist Extremist by his past association with Bill Ayers ... then FOX NEWS is just as guilty of supporting terrorism by their current association with Prince Al Waleed bin Talal ...

The issue is really one of journalistic integrity. When any REPUTABLE (as in NOT FOX) news organization reports on the finances of a group or individual that ALSO is a significant owner in their company, they point that out at the beginning. It is an issue of credibility. Because FOX takes this sinister "where is the money coming from and who is this guy who runs the Kingdom foundation" approach to their reporting and then they just conveniently leave out that this "sinister Muslim money" is also in business with them it is a MAJOR credibility issue. In short FOX has no credibility. It should be assumed that they ARE LYING about everything until proven otherwise. Further, when someone owns as much stock in a company as Alwaleed bin Talal owns in News Corp, several things happen. First, that person (or group) can usually get ANYONE at the company on the phone in an instant. That amount of ownership gives him instant clout at FOX. He states himself that he has a "close relationship" with Murdoch. So the issue is not that he controls FOX but that he can influence things there. Perhaps his agenda is to instigate hatred through this shoddy reporting by FOX therefore stirring up anger in the US. Who is to say that is not his agenda? This whole thing stinks... like pretty much everything on FOX.

Once a company is publicly traded, they cannot prevent anyone from buying the stock on the open market...that doesn't mean they are funding that person, in fact in means that person is funding the company they buy stock in...what a joke!

Actually, you are not funding the company by buying its stock. The company already has received the money through the sale of stock, usually from an IPO (Initial Public Offering) or some other method of selling common stock to the public which happened years, sometimes decades, before. For a person to buy stock in a company, there has to be someone willing to sell the stock they own. They would be selling because they perhaps have lost their confidence in the future of the company or, more likely, they've lost confidence that the stock will go up appreciably in the near future, so they take their profit now and invest somewhere else.

So if I'm a billionaire, and I purchase large sums of stock from CNN to the point where I own a very large portion of the company, and supporting neo-nazism...does that make CNN look bad? Do the employees at CNN really have a choice in such dire economic times?

t August 31, 2010 6:42 am (Pacific time)

PCHOW and kmichaels, I hate to say this, but you're on the wrong side.

Jon+ August 26, 2010 6:16 pm (Pacific time)

Really no different than the DEA/CIA fighting drugs/crime with one hand, and secretly promoting/importing them in clandestine operations in the other hand. Fox News has carved out a niche as a radical, racist Republican entity. Arabs know as well as anyone else how to reap profits from economic niches. Hypocracy is easy to ignore when you're drowning in dollars.

gorku August 27, 2010 7:41 pm (Pacific time)

OK, kmichaels, I agree, Fox News has a perfect right to take Alwaleed bin Talal's money. But why did they try to cover it up? Why did they try to claim that it was sinister for the so-called "Terror Mosque" to take his money, when it was OK for them to do it? By the way, he is not some simple stockholder. He is the second biggest stockholder after Rupert Murdoch himself, and they suck up to him when he appears on Neal Cavuto.

November's election results should provide considerable evidence on what the majority value in terms of leadership and the information sources that led them to their voting decisions. Americans are not stupid, at least not the majority. Sure they can be conned, but that won't be a lasting situation. My hope is that one day soon all those of opposing views can once again have respectful debate, because the level of acrimony we are experiencing is just getting worse, and who knows where it will ultimately lead. By the way over 100 million people own stock through direct investments, or as passive investors through pension programs. No doubt many of you may own stock in outfits you don't approve of, and good luck with that.

kmichaels August 27, 2010 4:05 pm (Pacific time)

First off, lets correct the purposeful lies that the moronic author of this bilge wrote. The person in question is not an OWNER. He is a simple stock holder. Do any of you liberal morons understand how that works? Serial killers are allowed to buy public stocks as well as preachers and teachers. It does not give you control of the company and it does not magically make you an "OWNER" in the sense of actual control. Get a grip, losers.

Editor: Don't call our writers names and spew BS like a little whiny SOB unless you want me to tell you what a stupid moronic scumbag you are, along with your dirtbag slimeball heroes and interests.  Try approaching things from a level point of view.  I know almost all conservative commenters haven't a leg to stand on and just like Israel, you guys resort instantly to name calling and labeling.  Your 'boys' at FOX just got caught again.  What you should to is take out stock in Kleenex. 

PChow August 27, 2010 1:02 pm (Pacific time)

This is really really bad reporting, NewsCorp (i.e Fox) is a public company and anyone can buy stock in any public company. For large public companies that trade on the major global stock exchanges(e.g. Newscorp, IBM, GE) there is no realistic way to prevent someone from buying shares in said public company. If Osama Bin laden had a Schwab account he could buy stock too :) Really people, get a grip on reality and a basic understanding of how the stock market works.

Editor: Un huh, and you should learn a few things too, like the meaning of 'hypocrisy'.

Brian Knox August 27, 2010 7:55 am (Pacific time)

Doug Schons, you an idiot.

Stephen August 27, 2010 6:44 am (Pacific time)

This article is accurate and here is a link to another article with more information: Fox news = Unfair and Unbalanced. They just look stupid in all this. Oh Yea and NewsCorp donated over a Million dollars to the GOP so If you want to play Fox's guilt by association game then "terrorist" funders give some of their money to the GOP. Ridiculous

Mary Becker August 27, 2010 5:22 am (Pacific time)

Leave it to the Conservatives to somehow spin the fact that a terrorist sympathizer owning Fox News is an indication of a it's goodness and integrity. Sheep being led to the slaughter and laughing all the way

James Laffrey August 26, 2010 10:00 pm (Pacific time)

Good stuff. More than that, though, is the fact that nobody -- Nobody -- on network or cable corporate tv will follow the money To The Top. They always stop where it best serves their own purposes. Of course, they must stop so as to protect the true owners. In the example above, Fox "follows the money" only so far. Then, John Stewart and crew follow the money a little farther. Some people go as far as the Rockefellers in the USA. Others get lost in the groups, such as CFR, Bilderberg, Trilateral. Those groups exist, of course, but the follow-the-money trail gets split up there. One hundred years ago, one family was reported to have half the wealth of the world in their hands. From then on, nobody could out-bid them for anything. Now, they have more. They are the Rothschilds, self-described Jews, zionists. They are the true owners behind the fronts of Rupert Murdoch, the top sheiks, and all the others who sow fear, fighting, and self-destruction among us and between countries. Let's put a stop to it, shall we? Or do we want to die while still under this fully UnAmerican rule? We have the solution at

Also funding Faisal Abdul Rauf's organizations are the globalist Carnegie Corporation chaired by Republican Thomas Kean, outspoken proponent of the "War on Terror (TM)", Council on Foreign Relations member, and 9/11 Commission member. Rockefeller foundations are also funding the "Imam" and his activities. All on the official ASMA website.

I tried to post information on the owners of News Corp stock. News Corp is the parent company of Fox News, as well as other Fox stations, and the Wall Street Journal. If you check out their financial statements you will see the owners listed. While Rupert Murdoch is listed as an owner, Alwaleed bin Talal is not. Makes me wonder where this guy got his information.

Catherine August 26, 2010 6:33 pm (Pacific time)

If you go to the News Corp financial statements (which is the parent company of Fox News) you will see the largest shareholders. Alwaleed bin Talal is not even listed. This may be hard to read but here is who owns News Corp.

Editor: Interesting information Catherine, but he owns a big chunk of News Corps.  Read: for proof of his ownership.

Catherine August 26, 2010 6:21 pm (Pacific time)

Doug, Right on point. Much has been made of Fox's "owner" Rupert Murdock and how his conservative ideals slant Fox news reporting. If, as this guy claims, Fox is actually owned by a terrorist sympathizer it proves how independent are the newscasters and pundits at that station.

Well if this article is completely accurate, then it demonstrates that the FOX Network is completely independent from ownership influences and is acting in the highest of journalistic principals. It was these same high principals that allowed a vote of Whitehouse journalists of all the different organizations there to give FOX a highly sought front chair at the Whitehouse newsroom briefing area. My belief is that any of the personnel at FOX will provide answers to the questions Mr. Duff proposes. These are not the kind of people who run from a fight, they stand up to their detractors, at least from my lengthy observations. Hate the network or not, they are the biggest cable player out there and their audience grows daily while the others are diminishing. They get guests from all political backgrounds. We shall see how this all plays out in actual behavior, not via suppostion and unsubstantiated innuendo.
