Saudi Billionaire Eyes new Links with News Corp. (FOX)

Back in 2005 Saudi Prince bin Talal admitted to getting FOX News to change their coverage of the Muslim riots in France.

Covering the riots in Paris last November, Fox ran a banner saying: “Muslim riots.” Bin Talal was not happy. “I picked up the phone and called Murdoch… (and told him) these are not Muslim riots, these are riots out of poverty,” he said. “Within 30 minutes, the title was changed from Muslim riots to civil riots.”
