PAWNN: Already Told Ya ‘Bout Saudi Prince’s Increased FOX News Stake, Rotana/Murdoch Incest

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

This is bad. Very Bad. Calculated and bad.

Stealth Jihad – we are being infiltrated & propagandized at every level, gov’t., the military, media, the universities.
Leftists allied with Islamists are out to undermine America the way they have undermined Europe.

Terry on January 18, 2010 at 2:23 am

It is very bad. Fox News will rapidly lose whatever independence it has as a result of this deal over time. Also, the Wall Street Journal cannot avoid being tarnished by this development. You would think that Rupert Murdoch at his advanced age would refrain from short-term gain deals of this nature. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Rupert will be in an urn or underground by the time the full repercussions of this deals become clear.

For a change, I would like to see government intervention in this matter. It is very dangerous to allow Rotana Media such a level of control in an already oligopolistic industry.

Yet all the talk is about the so-called Jewish Lobby while the really dangerous Saudi/Islamic lobby is ignored.

Terry on January 18, 2010 at 6:08 am

I am in no way defending Fox, and agree completely that Saudi ownership increases a pro-Islamic slant on the news, and undermines any remaining integrity of the Fox newstaff as you mentioned.

At the same time though, I wonder about the timing of all these news articles, and I suspect it may have something to do with the Brown campaign in Massachusetts — whether it is an attempt to undermine any sources of potential support for Brown, or, for that matter, any news source that is not 100% behind Obama and Obamacare.

Debbie you were right again. Glenn Beck bought and sold by Saudi Oil. No wonder they won’t bring up Obama’s birth certificate. No wonder Lou Dobbs eventually didn’t get hired by FOX.

I’m glad you have been pointing out what a fraud Michelle Malkin has become.

For example, yesterday she puts up a prayer for Haiti on site. Yet she hires for her own Hot Air the militant atheist “AllahPundit” who puts up a headline today “Why god hates Haiti,” not even capitalizing the letter “g” and who has written numerous posts on his atheist jihad.

If she had any integrity, she would fire “AllahPundit” and Ed Morrissey, who loves every speech that Obama makes pandering to Muslims. But she doesn’t seem to have any.

Since it was George W. Bush who was the first United States president to recognize the terrorist state of Palestein, nothing is shocking. Obama’s Mitchell an obviously biased representative who was selected originally by Bush… how I count the ways. When push comes to shove the only difference between right and left is that that the right hides their hateful intentions from the public. FOX NEWS merely reflects this attitude. The reason this isn’t news is because Saudi billionaire Prince AlWaleed Bin Talal Al-Saud has been in for a while and knows a money maker when he sees it. Debbie, turn up those interrogation lights. If the GOP and their loyal media wants to be the party supporting Israel… make them sweat. I have no problem taking investor money in a public company, but no investor has a right to influence a news division from doing their job. Get FOX to make a public apology. Let’s see them do a news story on this… deny it if they must, but this is news and should be covered.

Having JUST NOW read the article I find it warrants further investigation.

It does seem strange that as Pro American (anti Socialist) & Pro Israel that FOX News is and considering the political climate of what is happening tomorrow as well as the open attempt at changing the United States of America away from a Democratic Republic that the timing as mentioned by others is a little strange.

Michael on January 18, 2010 at 1:33 pm

How hideous. But then I don’t get Fox “news.” I don’t subscribe to the cable channel. (We do get enough of the Leftist junk up here in Canada though). It’s another shame about Wall Street Journal.

Oh, and someone at Politico needs to “get a clue” and stop the crap about the imaginary “Jewish lobby.” It obviously doesn’t exist. What does exist is an increasingly vocal and hate-filled Arab Lobby clamouring for the destruction of the United States and Israel.

J.S. on January 18, 2010 at 4:26 pm

BS”D I read this about 2 or 3 days ago when it broke – it is shocking. At this point, Fox News seemed to be almost the only place to get news that wasn’t toe-ing the “party line” of mainstream media.

This needs to be looked at oh, so carefully. As far back as the 70s (at least), we started to sell huge amounts of real estate and stock holdings to the Saudis…we need these dots all connected, because they are connected.

SLL: Please read more carefully, as this post was lost on you. To repeat, the point here is that the story didn’t “break” two or three days ago, but over four months ago, when I wrote about it on this site. Talk about not connecting the dots and looking at things “oh, so carefully.” You can’t connect the dots, if you don’t read carefully and focus on reading comprehension, first. DS

Your article has definitely challenged me to check things out; however, Fox News is consistently on in our home, and, so far, none of the people criticized (Palin, Malkin, etc.) haved even remotely hinted at anything anti-semitic. If they did, I would tune them out. I have, in fact, heard Ms. Palin strongly support Israel/settlements. Fox News is generally supportive of Israel, and hopefully Saudi ownership won’t change that, but if it does, that’s a “deal-breaker” for me. This is the first I have heard of the ties between anything Saudi and Fox News. Part of me hopes it’s not true!?!

P: Wrong, wrong, wrong. Michelle Fraudkin repeatedly promotes anti-Semitism and Israel-hatred on her site, and she helped promote and raise money for a woman and her organization who praised and promoted Muslim death, rape, and torture threats on my life. I’ll be writing more about this. Palin hasn’t a clue about the settlements. In a Baba Wawa interview, she didn’t have a clue what she was saying and was completely uninformed. She’s just echoing talking points someone told that ignoramus to say. Plus the President of Team Sarah is an open Israel hater and pan-Islamist. DS

So after I got sick and tired of Bill O’Rielly using the phrase “moderate muslims” EVERY NIGHT, I turned FOX OFF for good. Now we know why FOX is SOFT on those who want to behead us, FOX is just one of their many mouth pieces, CNN, et al, being the others.
