Last night on The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart — who last week labeled Fox News a “terrorist command center” — mocked the Fox network for its own association with Prince Alwaleed:
This is the proposed “terror mosque.” We know that it’s a “terror mosque” because the money may be coming from a bad guy, who definitely owns part of Fox News. Now, we know that he’s a bad guy because we just heard it on Fox News.
And by hearing it on Fox News, watching Fox News, I’m increasing their viewership. And their advertising rates go up. Now, part of that money goes to the bad guy we learned about on Fox because he’s their part owner – Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, allowing him then to make it rain, so to speak, on the “terror mosque.”
My point is this: If we want to cut off funding to the “terror mosque,” we must – together as a nation — stop watching Fox. It’s the only way!
