Weird Frank Rich Column on Fox
This Frank Rich column is bizarre, particularly the part about Walid bin Talal. If I'm understanding this correctly, Fox is criticizing a guy who owns a significant share of their parent company. Does not this show a healthy separation between the editorial and business sides of their company? Should not liberal journalists be celebrating Fox's guts for taking an editorial stance that could hurt their bottom line? Especially Rich himself, since he spends most of the rest of this column suggesting that the Koch brothers (and by association, the rest of the right) are evil folks who naturally value profits over principle at all costs? I know, I've said on here that I don't actually agree with the Fox editorial line on the mosque. But this particular criticism of them just seems too weird not to notice.
