Representative Sheila Jackson Lee requests Rupert Murdoch House committee hearings, Obama protected by Murdoch and Fox
“The (American) press, which is mostly controlled by vested
interests, has an excessive influence on public opinion.”… Albert Einstein
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″
From The Blaze July 28, 2011.
“The third Muslim radicalization meeting of the House Homeland Security Committee kicked off Wednesday, and while the focus was supposed to be on the Al-Qaeda affiliated al-Shabaab group in Somalia, Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D- Texas) abruptly changed the subject — first to Rupert Murdoch, then to “right wing ideologues.”
Rep. Jackson Lee submitted for the record a letter requesting the House committee hold hearings on Rupert Murdoch’s alleged hacking into the phones of 9/11 victims.
Then she moved to her primary target, stating ”I would like to have a hearing on right wing extremists, ideologues who advocate violence…and the terrorizing of certain groups:””
I am in favor of investigating Rupert Murdoch, Fox and any other mainstream media that have been lying to the American public to protect Obama.

“Accuracy in Media (AIM) is urging a full inquiry into a report that a Saudi billionaire caused the Fox News Channel (FNC) to dramatically alter its coverage of the Muslim riots in France after he called the network to complain. The Saudi billionaire, Al-waleed bin Talal, is a friend of News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch and controls an influential number of voting shares in the company.
“This report underscores the danger of giving foreign interests a significant financial stake in U.S. media companies,” declared Cliff Kincaid, editor of Accuracy in Media.”
“From Accuracy in Media December 16, 2008”
“Auto company executives may have flown to Washington, D.C. on private jets, as Bill O’Reilly and others noted, but Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who has a major stake in Citigroup and also invests in the Fox News parent company, News Corporation, reportedly lives in a $100-million 317-room Riyadh palace. A nephew of Saudi King Abdullah, Alwaleed has been called the “Warren Buffett of the Gulf” and runs the Kingdom Holding Company.”
“From NPR September 1, 2010.
“The proposed construction of an Islamic center and mosque close to ground zero in New York City has inspired intense scrutiny from news outlets this month — and few have outstripped the Fox News Channel in their interest.
That’s especially true on Fox’s opinion-driven shows in the morning and evening hours. Familiar figures including Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham have repeatedly asked where the money for the center will come from.
Yet the parent company of Fox News shares a financial backer with the imam who is at the center of the firestorm. The second-largest holder of voting stock in News Corp. is Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, a nephew of the Saudi king. And through his philanthropies, Waleed has given generously to initiatives pursued by the imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf.”
“From Citizen Wells February 6, 2011.
“Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck continue to insult concerned Americans who question Obama’s eligibility. They refer to them as birthers and right wing nuts. However, even Lou Dobbs while still at CNN asked why Obama doesn’t present a legitimate birth certificate.””
“A disturbing trend has developed at Fox. Bill O’Reilly misled the American people for several years by stating that he had done research and that Obama was born in Hawaii. We recently got confirmation that he relied on the birth announcements. Now Jana Winter misrepresents what the Adobe software expert has said.
Did Fox make a deal with the devil?”
From Citizen Wells July 16, 2011.
“The scandal is expanding rather than fading because it is clear that Murdoch employees engaged in numerous dirty tricks to obtain information.
The FBI has opened a preliminary review into News Corp., trying to determine if employees hacked into the phones of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Agents are trying to figure out if they should progress to a full investigation and if U.S. law gives them jurisdiction to bring charges.”
