[Note: This article is obviously very biased. Some assertions may not be accurate. Alwaleed, although he may be a mosque funder, is not the ‘largest’ shareholder of
FoxNews but may own about 7%. See wikipedia for more information about Alwaleed.]

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, 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.
WHICH FOX NEWS OWNER HAS FOX NEWS ACCUSED OF FUNDING TERRORISM?
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.
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 institute or Mr. Baker for ties to terrorist organizations.
This is one of the rare occasions we have to agree with Fox News.
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 site 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.
