Ever since Al Gore sold Current TV to Al Jazeera, the network founded and funded by the oil-rich emirate of Qatar, the former vice president has drawn continuous fire in conservative media. Fox News, the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal, for example, have all castigated Gore, a man of the left and leading avatar of “global warming,” for such hypocrisies as timing the deal to avoid lefty tax hikes and bagging $100 million in greenhouse-gas money.

These same news outlets share something else in common: They all belong to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. That means they also belong to Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.

Alwaleed owns the largest chunk of News Corp. stock outside the Murdoch family. Shortly after his purchase of 5.5 percent of News Corp. voting shares in 2005, Alwaleed gave a speech that made it clear just what he had bought. As noted in The (U.K.) Guardian, Alwaleed told an audience in Dubai that it took just one phone call to Rupert Murdoch –“speaking not as a shareholder but as a viewer,” Alwaleed said – to get the Fox News crawl reporting “Muslim riots” in France changed to “civil riots.”

This didn’t make the “Muslim” riots go away, but Alwaleed managed to fog our perception of them. With a phone call, the Saudi prince eliminated the peculiarly Islamic character of the unprecedented French street violence for both the viewers at home and, more significantly, for the journalists behind the scenes. When little owner doesn’t want “Muslim” rioting identified and big owner agrees, it sets a marker for employees. Alwaleed’s stake, by the way, is now 7 percent.

We can only speculate on what other acts of influence this nephew of the Saudi dictator might have since imposed on Fox News and other News Corp. properties.(I have long argued that News Corp. should register as a foreign agent, due to the stock owned by a senior member of the Saudi ruling dynasty.) Alwaleed hasn’t shared any other editorial exploits with the public. But that opening act of eliminating key information from News Corp.’s coverage of Islamic news might well have set a pattern of omission.

....We know Alwaleed has influenced Fox editorial matters before. Could that Alwaleed influence – even his very presence – account for why News Corp. hasn’t hit harder on the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaradawi angles of the Gore-Jazeera deal?

I don’t know, but I wonder. Don’t you?

Another lie that the right wing likes to trot out.
One of the principal myths surrounding medical malpractice is its effect on overall health care costs. Medical malpractice is actually a tiny percentage of health care costs, in part because medical malpractice claims are far less frequent than many people believe.
In 2004, the CBO calculated malpractice costs amounted to “less than 2 percent of overall health care spending. Thus, even a reduction of 25 percent to 30 percent in malpractice costs would lower health care costs by only about 0.4 percent to 0.5 percent, and the likely effect on health insurance premiums would be comparably small.” i
Five years later, the CBO revisited the issue of medical negligence costs. This time, they attempted to account for the indirect costs of medical negligence, mainly the idea that doctors order extra tests to avoid liability. Again, the CBO found that tort reform would only save 0.5 percent of all health care costs.
Other authorities have also found that the direct costs associated with medical negligence are a tiny fraction of health care costs. According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the total amount of money spent defending claims and compensating victims of medical negligence in 2010 was $5.8 billion, or just 0.3 percent of the $2.6 trillion spent on health care in the U.S. that same year.

What a demented douchebag. Idiotic jurors just awarded an injured high school football player $11 million dollars because his helmet was "defective", that's why medical costs are sky high, idiotic liberal LIV jurors and trial lawyers.

Still waiting jellyfish, would you rather be water boarded or blown to smithereens by one of Oblamers illegal drone strikes?

Obama has been president for over 4 years now and economic growth is slow and unemployment is high. I think he said the road to recovery was long . It sure is with him in charge.When he got re-elected I knew things would just continue to drag on. I was hoping for someone else besides him. Oh well, another few years of a slow economy. Thanks Obama. For nothing.

You're just another imbecile who doesn't get that dealing with an active combatant is different than dealing with a prisoner. Water boarding is torture and prohibited by the Geneva Conventions whereas firing a missile from a drone is no more illegal than firing one from an F-16. If we can take out an enemy without putting our people in harm's way then what's the problem? There will be civilian casualties either way just like there were during the invasion of Iraq.

So did Saddam Hussein moron, but the neo cons didn't figure that into their equation when they decided to use US forces to get rid of them. That worked out really well. The difference is that it was the Egyptian people that decided Mubarak had to go, not a foreign power.
You're an idiot!
White american liberals, never has this planet had a more stupid group of people who work tirelessly against their own interests.

No other group of people on this planet have ever done this.

These do not add up to the 92 billion you claim was wasted.
As for your list, I recognized Johnson Controls because I just read about the profits it made in the first quarter. You said they were bankrupt or faltering on bankruptcy.
Green initiatives that reduce our dependency on foreign oil means fewer dollars being exported from this country & spent in our economy.
Green initiatives that reduce emissions help with are pollution from coal generation plants that sicken & kill thousands of Americas every year.
Don't be pedantic, once again you're too stupid or dishonest to see the salient point, scumbag criminal Oblamer is wasting billions on failed green energy schemes, the exact amount doesn't matter.

Fewer dollars spent in our economy? How about the billions wasted in Oblamers failures? The money is gone, into the pockets of Oblamers bundlers and others, stop being a sap.

You nor anybody else has one shred of proof any green scheme is doing one iota of good viv a vis AGW.

Gawd, you're an idiot, and a dishonest one at that.

White people rarely kill black people, the opposite cannot be said. The non stop black killings outside their race are almost never called for the hate crimes they are, yet fools like you and Oblamer shreik about one dead criminal thug like Traygone Martin.

The hypocrisy is what rankles.

Anytime I hear of senseless violence like this bar killing of 5 [4 women] I know instantly who the perps were and who the victims were, it's not racism to point out the truth.

In the extremely rare case of a white killing a black, instantly the race card is pulled out.

Deny it.

the last 12 years sunk the ship, and there is no future for the regressive Party that anyone who doesn't watch FOX(most of us) can see.
Moron, democrats got their asses kicked in 2010 in a record setting way, over 700 dems kicked out across the country.. To blabber that the republican party is finished just shows how incredibly ignorant you are of history.
