"Prince Alwaleed also owns a $4.3 billion dollar stake in Citigroup, and has announced that he opposes President Obama’s financial reforms like the banker speculation tax. On Fox News, the bank tax and other financial reforms have been smeared with misinformation and outright lies.

"In an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto last month, Prince Alwaleed emphasized the importance of the “strategic alliance” of America’s reliance on Saudi oil. Other Saudi officials have called efforts to build a clean energy economy in America Saudi Arabia’s “biggest threat.” Although little is known about the extent to which Prince Alwaleed weighs in on Fox content, Fox News dedicates much of its coverage to attacking clean energy legislation that would lead to American energy independence. If clean energy legislation dies, America will continue to be a foreign oil-dependent nation, which would benefit Prince Alwaleed and other members of the Saudi royal family."

I suppose you think they caused the snow and are fiddling with the thermometers. At least you have found someone other than Bush to blame for everything .

What better way for the Saudi Arabian ruling family to quietly deny climate cooking than to become the second-largest stockholder in the world's largest right-wing media network--which then blankets the developed world with denials of climate destruction?

Oily indeed.

I doubt anyone forms an opinion on the world "cooking" from Fox. They just look at their thermometers - you know, the "advanced science" you warmies say ordinary people can't understand.

No one forms opinions from watching Fox News, Fox affiliates, 20th Century Fox, or from reading the Wall Street Journal, The London Times, Harper Collins books, Beliefnet, Hulu and dozens of other media properties?

Of course not.
