Stewart Ahead of Folkenflik by a Week

David Folkenflik reported (link here) on Fox's 2nd largest investor, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, and how Fox has dropped the Manhattan Mosque funding story like a hot potato following The Daily Show's repeated satiric lambasting of Fox. It only took NPR a week to catch up with TDS (as linked here).

The best line of Folkenflik's report:
"Waleed now holds 7 percent of the voting stock in News Corp., more than any other person not named Rupert Murdoch."

So yes, The Kingdom Foundation has invested heavily in and donated generously to both Fox News and Fundamentalist Muslim charities, and the largest non-Murdoch investor in Fox and head of the Kingdom Foundation is George Bush's friend Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, therefore both the Bush family and Fox News, according to Fox News's own standards and logic, are equally guilty in funding of terrorism, and both should be investigated to the fullest extent of the law - according to Fox News.

It's a fair and balanced assessment.
