To anti-Park51 Fox News watchers

Are you against Park51, the new Muslim community center in lower Manhattan? And do you watch a lot of Fox News? Then this post is for you.

Al-Waleed bin Talal is a Saudi prince. He’s also the second largest shareholder of News Corp, the guys behind Fox News. And guess what? He has donated more than $300,000 towards the community center.

Yes, that’s right. Those guys you’ve been watching who are complaining about the community center are also being funded by someone who is giving money to that community center. If that’s not hypocrisy, I don’t know what is.

Look, I know you like your Fox News. But I think you have to admit that there’s something really wrong here. And I think you have to make a choice: ignore the hypocrisy and keep tuning into Fox News, knowing that you’re silently accepting it; or you can stop watching and go find a news organization that doesn’t talk out of both sides of their mouth. The choice is yours.

8/24 Update: I think Jon Stewart said it best:

If we want to cut off funding to the terror mosque, we must, together as a nation, stop watching Fox.
