Life through a (distorting) lens

Here - right here - is the best example you will ever see of Fox News's hypocrisy. They mouth off about a Saudi guy who tried to give Rudy Giuliani $10 million after 9/11 (he gave it back of course: what the hell could he do with $10 million? spend it on the families of rescuers killed in the Twin Towers? on poor people? on buying his firefighters radios which worked? come ON... he probably never even considered using it for anything but re-election, and accepting funds for that from a Muslim would be bad for the image), who funded the "Ground Zero Mosque" and who funds "radical madrassas". They are, however, perfectly happy for this same "radical" Saudi prince to fund Fox News, in which he is the second biggest shareholder. Trying to build mosques, or to fund the rebuilding of Manhattan: that shows how wicked he is. Funding the racist bigots at Fox - yum, yum, give me more of your filthy Muslim cheques.

Oh, incidentally, the "Ground Zero Mosque" that Pamela Geller, Bonni the BareNakedHolocaustDenier and all the other loons are still crowing about having defeated? It was never going to be a mosque of course, or at Ground Zero, but an Islamic Cultural Centre two blocks away: and THAT opened over a year ago, with no fuss whatsoever (presumably becase the loons didn't want to trumpet their pointlessness). Indeed, it opened about a week before the interview with Pamela Geller I linked there, and just a couple of weeks after Bonni's rant: that's how much attention these people pay to what's actually going on in New York rather than in their Nuremburg rally of the mind. Maybe that's why they haven't been running bus advertisements abut the wickedness of allowing women in New York to be treated as second-class citizens for religious reasons: too busy making up imaginary evils to be bothered with real ones.

We have relatives that either have Fox Radio on at their workplace or Fox News on TV at home. Some people love it, we join John Stewart in making fun of it.
