    Saudi Prince Buys Large Share of Fox News
    16:55 Sep 25, '05 / 21 Elul 5765


    (IsraelNN.com) Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has purchased 5.46 percent of the Fox corporation, according to Gulf Daily News, raising concern that the conservative Fox News may soften its anti-terror stance due to the views of the new shareholder.

    Al-Waleed, the nephew of the late Saudi King Fahd, was in the news when he visited the World Trade Center's remains just after the September 11th attacks and offered then-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani a $10 million check for relief efforts. Al-Waleed then released a statement blaming US foreign policy and support for Israel for the attacks.

    Giuliani returned the prince's check with a statement that, "There is no moral equivalent for this attack. The people who did it lost any right to ask for justification when they slaughtered . . . innocent people ... Not only are those statements wrong, they're part of the problem."

    Was this a private purchase or is this corporation a publicly traded company? If it is publicly traded company then there's not anything that the corporation could do to block the sale via the market.

    They have lots of oil but it will take some time to increase production facilities. They are also going to build refineries to export products.
