    This report is suspect because it was not from Fox news, Breitbart, the daily caller, newsmax, theamericanthinker, or one of the other few legitimate sources for news.

    Nice job of picking subjects with no real answer but plenty of controversy. Let's see…..he has 20 Billion and is the #26 richest man in the world owning KHC which in turn owns a 7% share of News Corp (Rupert Murdoch) which is the parent company of FOX. KHC is also an investor in/owner of shares in/fingers on Time Warner, Disney, ABC, ESPN, Twitter…….the list goes on. All of these Billionaires are well diversified and have their fingers on every facet of our lives……heck…..ASU has not been able to beat Oregon in FB since Phil Knight made the Forbes list. Even the 'Oracle of Omaha'/Berkshire Hathaway doesn't have all his eggs in the Obama Basket…

    Not a well constructed answer……but neither will the pages to follow with all the 'yeah but's' about to appear……..

    Well, I think you answered the question. The subject went viral over the weekend and I was searching for the authenticity of the Prince's comments. FYI, the Saudi's are also the largest investors of many of our formerly owned oil companies like Shell.

    My guess is, if the guy owned 7% of MSNBC, most of the Faux apologists would be having conniption fits.

    Shell Oil's official name is Royal Dutch Shell plc. It is chartered in the UK and HQ'd in the Netherlands. It has a spotty record regarding human rights, environmental pollution, bribery and infiltration of government. They ain't nice folks.

    Probably……..and if one was willing to invest the time, I'm sure you'd find equally disturbing ownerships in every aspect of our lives…..but….why bother if it doesn't support our agenda, right Buzz.

    Now kind of on the same topic. Vermont Pubic Radio is on the pre-set of the pick up truck. I very much enjoy that witty word show they have on Sundays and the weather forecast is the best of my pre-sets. For the longest time I thought the on the hour weather report was sponsored by a lingerie store. Then when I herd it correctly the first time I said to myself “Self, he didn’t say Al’s Braziers, he said al – jazeer!” ??????
    Why is the mouthpiece of terror targeting me in the truck to advertise to?
    Why do terrorist want me to know if the roads are icy?

    Franco, how do radio adds work? You think it is a national or local spot?
    And as for the billionaire in the OP. He very well may own a slice of msnbc.
