Arab tells Fox how to report the News

Billionaire Saudi Prince al-Walid bin Talal on Monday told the Arab and World Media Conference in Dubai that during last month’s street protests in France, the U.S. Fox television network – owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation in which Al-Walid himself has shares – ran a banner saying: “Muslim riots.”

“I picked up the phone and called Murdoch… (and told him) these are not Muslim riots, these are riots out of poverty,” he said.

“Within 30 minutes, the title was changed from Muslim riots to civil riots.”
