Currently, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal owns 5.5% of News Corp., Fox News' parent company which is headed by none other than Rupert Murdoch. Not only is bin Talal considering expanding his reach inside News Corp. but Murdoch appears to be quite interested in doing much more business with bin Talal.

The AP reports:
The Saudi billionaire whose investment firm is one of the biggest stakeholders in Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. said he is looking to expand his alliances with the media giant, in the latest indication that his appetite for growth remains robust even as his company retrenches.

Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a nephew of the Saudi king and who was listed last year by Forbes as the world's 22nd richest person, met with News Corp.'s chief executive Rupert Murdoch on Jan. 14 in a meeting that "touched upon future potential alliances with News Corp.," according to a statement released by his Kingdom Holding Co. late Saturday.

Media reports have indicated that News Corp, parent to Fox News and Dow Jones & Co., among others, may be thinking of buying a stake in Alwaleed's Rotana Media Group, which includes a number of satellite channels that air in the Middle East.
Has anyone ever noticed that Fox News does very little on the Islamic threat to America? Even Glenn Beck, for all the good he does, has done virtually NOTHING on the Council on American Islamic Relations' (CAIR) ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. When Bill O'Reilly interviews representatives from CAIR, they are given a pass when it comes to those ties. You will also not likely see an opposing guest who knows what CAIR is on at the same time.

An incredibly well-researched WND article reminds us of those riots in France in 2005 in which bin Talal contacted Murdoch when he didn't like how the rioters were being portrayed:
As WND reported, during violent street protests involving Muslim immigrants in France in 2005, the Saudi prince persuaded Murdoch to change a screen banner that identified the unrest as "Muslim riots."

"I picked up the phone and called Murdoch (and told him) these are not Muslim riots, these are riots out of poverty," bin Talal said. "Within 30 minutes, the title was changed from 'Muslim riots' to 'civil riots.' "

Fox News has acknowledged it changed the banner after receiving complaints from unnamed Muslims abroad. It has not denied bin Talal's influence in its internal operations.

Perhaps Barack Obama's best skill is the ability to get things done through others without leaving any of his own fingerprints. His affiliations are long and storied. Calling them "suspect" is being kind. Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and of course, Tony Rezko - a longtime friend of Obama who was found guilty on all 16 felony counts, consisting of fraud and kickback schemes.

In fact, the one instance where Obama failed to keep his fingerprints off of something incriminating involved a real estate deal with Rezko involving an adjacent lot to his home. On its face, Rezko would have absolutely NO reason to buy it unless political favors were involved. Obama called the deal "boneheaded" but it may be more than that.

Andrew Breitbart's new site, BIG JOURNALISM has a very interesting update on Rezko:
On June 4, 2008, Rezko was convicted in federal court on 16 charges of corruption. For a day or so, he was big news.

After that, a national media that ignored Obama’s connections with the corrupt Chicago political machine lost all interest in Rezko. After all, there was an “historic” election to influence, and anything that made Obama’s shady past the subject of a national conversation had to be squelched.

Today, those who remember Rezko assume he’s serving out his sentence. Wrong.

“Tony” is one of a dozen high-profile convicted criminals associated with The Machine who await sentencing. He voluntarily entered jail before being sentenced. His sentencing has been postponed several times. So what’s up? Is he afraid to be on the street? If he’s talking, what is he telling U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald from his cell?

When Obama ran for the U.S. Senate, his campaign funding committee consisted of Rezko, Allison Davis, and Valerie Jarrett.

In 1993, Allison Davis hired an attorney fresh out of Harvard for the Chicago law firm he formed to represent land developers. Obama worked there until he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004. Meanwhile, Davis became a developer himself.
