    :eek: The Left & Al-Qaeda joining forces in Jihad against Fox News? Yikes!


    [​IMG]

    In the final six months of his life, Osama bin Laden received a 21-page letter from his media advisor, U.S.-born jihadist Adam Gadahn, that lamented the firing of MSNBC host Keith Olbermann and wished death upon Fox News:

    “It should be sent for example to ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN and maybe PBS and VOA. As for Fox News let her die in her anger,” Gadahn wrote. At another point, he said of the networks: “From a professional point of view, they are all on one level — except [Fox News] channel, which falls into the abyss as you know, and lacks objectivity, too.”

    As David Ignatius of the Washington Post notes, "What an unintended boost for Fox, which can now boast that it is al-Qaeda’s least favorite network."

    Al-Qaeda's take on various media outlets offers an interesting window into terrorist perceptions of American media:

    In the letter, the media adviser focuses on “how to exploit” the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, on television. He worries that CNN “seems to be in cooperation with the government more than the others,” though he praises its “good and detailed” Arabic coverage. “I used to think that MSNBC channel may be good and neutral a bit,” he continues, but then notes the firing of Olbermann.

    The media chatter continues: CBS “has a famous program (‘60 Minutes’) that has some popularity and a good reputation.” ABC “is all right; actually, it could be one of the best channels,” because of its chief investigator and terrorism expert, Brian Ross. But all the networks, he complains, will bring in analysts who will “conduct a smearing” of al-Qaeda figures.

    No word yet from Keith Olbermann or MSNBC as to whether they plan to tout their top-rated status among terrorists in future promotions.

    Reverse psychology. AQ loves Fox News, because the more voice those crazies get, the better it is for AQ recruitment.

    Fox's "war against Muslims" rhetoric is exactly how AQ wants to spin our activities in the region.

    In an awkward moment on Fox News this week, a pundit suggested that a member of the Saudi royal family who has supported the bridge-building work of the imam behind a planned Muslim community center and mosque in Lower Manhattan “funds radical madrasas all over the world.” The awkwardness came from the fact — unmentioned by anyone on the Fox set — that the same Saudi, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, also happens to be the second-largest shareholder in News Corp., the parent company of the Fox News Channel.

    The Saudis have a stake in FOX and also backed the 9/11 attacks.

    Good stuff.

    The Saudi owns a 7% interest, stands behind Murdoch: $$$ before ideology it appear:

    July 21 (Bloomberg) -- News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch, facing the fallout from alleged phone-hacking at a London newspaper, got a vote of confidence from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud, one of the company’s largest shareholders.

    Alwaleed remains “both supportive and confident in the leadership of Rupert and James Murdoch,” he said in an e-mail yesterday. The statement came a day after Rupert Murdoch and his son James, who is deputy chief operating officer, were questioned by U.K. lawmakers during a three-hour hearing on alleged phone-hacking at News Corp.’s News of the World tabloid.

    The Murdochs answered “all questions” at the hearing with “full honesty and integrity,” said Alwaleed, whose Kingdom Holding Co. holds 7 percent of the voting stock in News Corp., the second-largest after the Murdoch family. He also said he supports the inquiry as “part of a necessary process to address the unacceptable practices that developed at the now closed News of the World.”
