UNFAIR AND UNBALANCED FOX NEWS
By Joe Kress
January 7, 2008
William (Bill) O�Reilly, stooge for Rupert Murdoch, mouths the thoughts of his master in his afternoon radio and nightly TV propaganda � �my explicative deleted.� It�s TV nightly program along with clueless Sean and second banana Colmes and their dog and pony show is just a speck or less tolerable than the ranting of loudmouth Bill. Fox at night exploits our society�s bottom dwellers. It provides nothing but mindless, cheap tabloid propaganda reflecting Rupert�s reputation for exporting sleaze, and nudity snippets to please the porno seekers. His real objective is to control all news outlets. It�s mind numbing to listen to that belligerent O�Reilly speak over his guests that have a different view politically. His rant is to influence the stupid by using volume to assault their ears. Fox network is anything but fair and balanced.
On December 24th, Fox TV came out with a split picture of Ron Paul and Abe Lincoln above the label that Dr. Paul verses Lincoln. Within 30 minutes, the picture and caption were shown once again, but shortly thereafter the master Neocon, an active member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the smooth talking mouthpiece William Kristol appears on the screen commenting that Ron Paul is a far right extremist, and that all those right wing dupes who recently contributed $18 million dollars in just 2 days [as of January 1, 2008 it�s up to $20 million.] and millions more every month are as out of touch as Dr. Paul.
Obviously, Ron Paul�s interview Sunday Morning (December 23, 2007) on Meet the Press raised eyebrows and instilled real fear within the globalist movers and shakers. Orders were given to their media wonks to demean and besmirch the one candidate for president that calls for a complete change � one radically different from that of the present administration and a line of prior administrations beginning with Teddy Roosevelt�s role of manifest destiny, and nation building; of continuous war for world peace; a universal currency controlled by the world�s banking and media interests; a world court obviating our justice system; borderless continents made up of obedient citizens under perpetual surveillance by Big Brother. Ron Paul believes in the U.S. Constitution � not the mantra spreading by the propagandists for borderless nations void of sovereignty consisting of unelected mega-wealthy world-wide string-pullers and manipulators like George Soros and David Rockefeller whose dreams are leading a closely knit group of power hungry mattoids like themselves.
Not surprising is the link between Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard and Rupert Murdoch�s, other 175 newspapers. The recent acquisition of Dow Jones and the Wall Street Journal and a piece of Barron�s and Dow Jones Newswires and MarketWatch.com rounds out his dream to influence five continents of viewers, readers and gluttons for business information. Since the Journal has a deal to provide news content exclusively to CNBC until 2012, it will be awhile before FOX News has a business channel. Among other investments, Rupert owns the New York Post, the Times of London, the 20th Century FOX Studio, 35 TV stations that reach more than 40 percent of the country. At any given time, News Corporation either produces or delivers his Neocon views to millions of people of all stripes.
What�s his goal, we may ask? Answer: Power to influence and obtain his Neocon objectives.
In order to accomplish his goal it�s necessary to insure that all the electable presidential candidates are members of the Council on Foreign Relations are in sympathy with that organization�s global purpose and dedicated to Israeli causes. As an example, Fergus Cullen, chairman of the new Hampshire State Republican Committee, confirmed on Sunday, December 30th to the Tribune that, yes, there will be a televised FOX News presidential candidate forum on 6 January, two days before the New Hampshire primary and yes, Rep. Ron Paul was not invited when the other candidates were the prior week. The candidates that were invited: Rudy Giuliani (CFR); John McCain (CFR), Mitt Romney (CFR), Fred Thompson (CFR) and Mike Huckabee, not a member of the CFR, but gave an address to the CFR Policy Council and shortly thereafter his poll ratings exploded.
Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said that media consolidation was �very damaging� to American democracy and results in a �distorted view� of events, the Boston Globe reported. He refused to participate in Murdoch�s Fox News Channel hosting of a Democrat presidential debate scheduled for sometime in August, 2007 because FOX is a Right Leaning News Channel (not fair and balanced). The debate was cancelled.
As an example of Murdoch�s inroads within the Republican Party, Harper Collins, owned by Murdoch�s media enterprises published Kay Bailey Hutchison�s, Trent Lott�s and Allen Specter�s books with significant advances on these unspectacular writings. All three senators are on the Commerce Committee that controls the number of TV and newspaper outlets that a single entity can control. The percentage subsequently was raised from 33% to 39%, exactly the number that Rupert already had purchased or was about to purchase.
In a scathing expose by Media and Culture, title Who is Rupert Murdoch? Media states in one of its captions Murdoch The Corporate Tax Evader. In four years, prior to June 30, 1998, �Murdoch�s News Corporation and its subsidies paid only $325 million in corporate taxes worldwide. That translates as 6% of the $5.4 billion consolidated pre-tax profits for the same period. Disney paid 31%. Further research reveals that his main British holding company, News Corp. Investments has paid no net corporate tax within these shores over the past 11 years. This is despite accumulated tax profits of nearly $3 billion. (Source BBC, 3/25/29]
Murdoch, according to Who is Rupert Murdoch? uses offshore tax havens and by channeling profits through dozens of subsidiaries in low tax or no tax places such as the Cayman Islands and Bermuda the overseas profits from movies made by 20th Century Fox, for instance, flow into News Corp. in the Caymans, where they are not taxed.

U.S. based companies face U.S. taxes on their offshore subsidies in the Caymans and elsewhere, if more than 50 percent of the subsidiary is controlled by America shareholders. But that doesn�t apply to News Corp., an Australian company. [Source: Congressional Testimony, 5/08/03; Washington Post, 12/7/97]
According to Christopher Bollyn�s � American Free Press article MURDOCH�S JEWISH ROOTS � Murdoch has his Jewish roots through his mother Elisabeth Joy Greene whose father was named Rupert. According to Candor Magazine his is an elitist background graduating from Oxford University. �His father was Sir Keith Murdoch who gained his entrance into Australian society through his marriage and the influence of a wealthy Jewish family. Through his wife�s connections Keith Murdoch was subsequently promoted from reporter to chairman of the British-owned newspaper where he worked. There was enough money to buy himself a knighthood of the British realm, two newspapers in Adelaide, South Australia, and a radio station in a faraway mining town.� According to Candor in 1984, �For some reason, Murdoch has always tried to hide the fact that his pious mother brought him up as a Jew.�
Yet, it is a fact that Netanyahu is a frequent commentator on Murdoch�s Fox News and according to Christopher Bollyn, �Murdoch�s support for Zionism extremists is well known and a matter of record.� He quotes N.Y. Governor Pataki �there is no newspaper in the U.S. more supportive of Israel than the [Murdoch�s] New York Post.
Cliff Kincaid, December 12, 2007 wrote an article with the heading: Rupert Murdoch Picks Liberal Son to Head Fox News. In it he predicts that the complexion of FOX will change noticeably from its pseudo conservative image to a liberal view. This fits the political duplicity of News Corp. where it switches loyalty, (although a false one) and makes an early anticipation that the winner will be a Democrat for president and there will be a loss of influence by the Republicans.
Murdoch�s influence on Capitol Hill is so powerful that he is permitted to control the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones and capture the majority of business news outlets in America. He will soon overwhelm its rival the Times of London in setting the agenda of the country. His intention is to extend his readership beyond pure business readers, but the world�s leading business journalism source for consumers, according to Richard Siklos�: So Now What? (August 1, 2007).

Rupert Murdoch�s Blurbs:
For the past several hundred years, kings, presidents, parliaments and legislatures were dependent on the money changers who gave out credit in exchange for armaments, social programs and infrastructures thereby they were controlled by those that control the purse strings. Of course, there always was the media, most of which were linked to the cabal of central bankers and an elite closet organizers who pull the political puppet strings of their politicians.
In the case of Rupert Murdoch life�s fortune began with his parent�s political and money connections, especially those on his maternal side of the family. Never before has one man grasped the reins of power and with it the ability to foist his personal philosophy on the public and make it think it is their own. There still exists in this 21st century the corrupt money system that will ruin nations, but coupled to it is what amounts to Orwellian thought control vis-a-vis The News Corporation.
