Joseph Farah Is Still A Hypocrite
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Remember when we noted the utter hypocrisy of Joseph Farah in denouncing Fox News for having a Saudi investor but still being eager for him and his WND minions appear on the channel? Well, he's still at it.

Farah's July 16 column is yet another attack on Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal for being "a major, one might even say pivotal, stockholder in Fox's parent company, News Corp." Again, it appears Farah's real beef is that Fox didn't cover a WND-published anti-Muslim book.

Is it possible the reason Fox never covered the breathtaking investigative book "Muslim Mafia" – a groundbreaking exposé of the Council on American-Islamic Relations – is because Alwaleed donated $500,000 to the group? Is it possible this is why CAIR, a group the U.S. Justice Department and FBI both say unequivocally is tied to terrorism, still finds the welcome mat rolled out at Fox?

And again, Farah's actions betray his angry words. Guess who appeared on "Fox & Friends this past week? Why, none other than WND columnist Chrissy Satterfield (she of the endorsing-vandalism-of-atheists).

Wouldn't a person who genuinely had the courage of his convictions forbid his writers to appear on Fox News in protest of Alaweed's investment in News Corp.? Yes, but that person is not Joseph Farah.
