More crudely hypocritical propaganda from Fox News - Who is Alwaleed Bin Talal?

Jon Stewart does it again. Following Stewart's exposé, done in a style that aficionados will recognize as a smoothly understated Glenn Beck parody, there is a pseudo-debate between two pseudo-media-analysts addressing the key question: Are the crew at Fox News stupid or evil? But do we really have to choose?

Anyway, it's hard to disagree with Stewart's conclusion: "If we want to cut off funding to the terror mosque, we must, as a nation, stop watching Fox."

P.S. I've been late in commenting on the Cordoba House/Park51/"Ground Zero Mosque" controversy ... but I plan to say something substantive about it soon.

P.P.S. By the way, back in 2001 Rudy Giuliani was right to refuse to accept Bin Talal's money after 9/11.
