Fox News Warns Of Al Jazeera Infiltrating America, Activating Sleeper Cells

Source: TPM



TOM KLUDT 4:00 PM EST, WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 20, 2013

A Fox News panel on Wednesday afternoon discussed Al Jazeera's imminent arrival in the United States, warning viewers of the network's "real anti-American bias" and its potential to interact with sleeper cells in Detroit.

The cautionary segment came during the afternoon program "America Live," with host Megyn Kelly saying ominously that Al Jazeera, which has plans to launch a U.S.-based network, is "about to infilitrate America."

But the discussion took a truly paranoid turn when Lisa Daftari, a Fox News contributor, sounded a frightening note on Al Jazeera's planned expansion to Detroit, "a large ex-pat community of Muslim-Americans where sleeper cells have been detected," as she described the Motor City.

24. Actually FOX is the Sleeper Cell: Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal owns a 7 percent stake in

News Corp — the parent company of Fox News — making him the largest shareholder outside the family of News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch. Alwaleed has grown close with the Murdoch enterprise, recently endorsing James Murdoch to succeed his father and creating a content-sharing agreement with Fox News for his own media conglomerate, Rotana.

Moreover:
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.

Bahahaa!

4. How ironic, considering that a significant investor in NewsCorp is Kingdom Holdings (Saudi Royals)

A bit of rivalry between the sheikhs and emirs (al-Jazeera is owned by the United Arab Emirates), or are the Fox "analysts" just plain ignorant of who owns both global new groups? The Saudis own about 10% of Fox News' parent company, according to Kingdom Holding's website. http://www.kingdom.com.sa/investments/media-and-publishing/news-corporation

Kingdom Holding Company has been a significant investor since 1997 in News Corporation, the world’s third largest media conglomerate. News Corporation has unrivaled global reach with broadcast, cable television, filmed entertainment, newspaper and publishing interests.

While searching for a high-value media investment, KHC identified News Corporation as having a uniquely strong brand and unrivalled global reach in a sector of ever growing potential. Capitalizing on a period of underperformance beginning in the early 1990s, KHC seized an opportunity to invest USD 400m into the corporation in 1997, securing non-voting preferred shares that represented approximately 3% of News Corporation’s worth. This initial interest was extended in 1999, at the request of News International’s management, with an additional USD 200m investment.

Following News Corporation’s acquisition of Fox Entertainment in 2005, the initial 3% non-voting preferred shares holding was converted into a 5.5% holding in News International’s common voting stock to support the management’s efforts to resist a potential hostile bid from Liberty Media.

The future between KHC and News Corporation looks bright, with the Company seeking to leverage its relationship with the media giant to identify new investment opportunities.

42. The righties always give the Saudis a pass

I believe it has something to do with the way women are treated in the country. The likes of Todd Akin admire how the Saudis keep women in their place.

43. I believe it also has to do with the Saudis funding the GOP since Bush, Sr. - through "US companies"

they own or control. This is what the dissent in the Citizens United decision warned about is happening - uncontrolled foreign influence buying of the US political process.

They could have more easily said, "Al Jazeera plans network expansion"

have access to news media from another nation and another people -- who are not terrorists.

It begins to show the profound and sick racism at work here.

in a whistleblower case involving a story on Monsanto.

I remember reading about it back then and having subsequently less trust in the mainstream news as a result.

Here's the story. Read it and weep.
