You heard it here first . . . over four months ago, to be exact. I’m talking about the “news” about PAWNN–the Prince Al-Waleed News Network a/k/a FOX News Channel and its parent company, in which he (Saudi billionaire Prince AlWaleed) is the second largest stakeholder, News Corp. It’s a story I exposed back in early September, that the mainstream media is finally discovering, as if it’s now news.
Rupert Murdoch + Prince AlWaleed = PAWNN
Over the weekend, a number of readers sent me AP and other news stories about Saudi billionaire Prince AlWaleed Bin Talal Al-Saud’s interest in increasing his stakes in News Corp, the parent of FOX News Channel, FOX, the New York Post, and the Wall Street Journal, among other properties. The article also discussed the new relationship between News Corp and Prince AlWaleed’s Rotana Media, as well as his Kingdom Holding Co. But as with all stale news that’s older than mold, because Drudge picked it up as a headline, yet even more readers sent it to me.
But this is a story I wrote back in September, four months before Al-Associated Press noticed.
FLASHBACK – DebbieSchlussel.com, September 3, 2009: Rupert Murdoch, FOX News Parent Co Increase Ties w/ Extremist Saudi Prince, Seeking Arab Street Viewers
Again, as with a lot of stuff Drudge finally notices very late, it’s not news. If you’re a long time reader of DebbieSchlussel.com, you read about all of it here in early September. And, yes, to new readers who ask me if Prince AlWaleed is the same Saudi who offered Rudy Giuliani $10 million right after 9/11, if America would “adjust” its foreign policy to become anti-Israel, as I’ve repeatedly noted on this site: yup, that’s the guy.
You’d do best to ignore the AP rehash (by Muslim Arab “reporter” Tarek El-Tablawy) and read my original article and analysis on Prince AlWaleed’s Rotana, his increased financial entanglement with Rupert Murdoch, and what it involves. It’s more than meets the eye and even worse a development than you thought. The only new development in the AP story is that AlWaleed and Murdoch met on Thursday. Big whoop. The problem is that they meet and talk on the phone all of the time, and I noted, back in September, AlWaleed’s declared desire to further increase his NewsCorp stake, which he had already upped at that point.
And, yes, Michelle Fraudkin, Sarah Palin, Sean Vannity, Bill O’Reilly, and Glenn Beck all work for him now. So don’t look for a single one of those phonies on his payroll to say a peep about it. Uh-huh, yet another way they are whores and frauds.
I’ve noted repeatedly on this site how Prince AlWaleed–an open anti-Semite and donor to homicide bombing telethons, which raised money for Palestinian terrorists to blow up Jews–called his good buddy, Rupert, and got him to change FOX News’ coverage of the frequent Muslim riots in France to “civilian” riots and erase the world Muslim from their coverage of those events entirely.
