    Alwaleed’s US$300m stake in Twitter is belief in media’s future.....

    The decision by Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal and Kingdom Holding to make a US$300m strategic investment in Twitter is based on the prince’s instinct that social media will transform the entire media landscape in the years ahead.

    “Our investment in Twitter reaffirms our ability in identifying suitable opportunities to invest in promising, high-growth businesses with a global impact," Prince Alwaleed said.

    Prince Alwaleed has a strong presence and influence in media through his investments in media and entertainment in the Arab world and beyond, like the Saudi Research and Marketing Group (SRMG), in which Kingdom Holding holds a 29.9pc stake.

    The publications that fall under SRMG include Asharq Al Awsat, Al Eqtisadiah, Arab News, Hia magazine, Al Majalla magazine, Arrajol magazine and Sayidati magazine. Furthermore, other entities that fall under SRMG are Al Khaleejiya for Publicity Advertising and Public Relations and Al Madina Printing and Publishing Company. Furthermore, KHC is owner of about 7pc of News Corporation's Class B Common Stock.

    Prince Alwaleed recently announced his plans to launch his privately owned Alarab news channel.....snip~

    This is unfortunate....This more than any other knee jerk reaction to FNC from liberals, is an effective sign of manipulation by outside entities in our journalism.

    Like I said any Country should be concerned about Foreign Entities and what they are broadcasting and programming into one's own Country. Course I haven't even looked into what Radio Broadcasts and or American Publications that have such behind them already. Nor any of those writers that stem from Foreign Sources that work here inside the US.

    It is a propaganda arm of a totalitarian state. You don't think that matters?! Who gives a crap who works for the King, it could be innocent old ladies - the network is owned by a scumbag dictator.

    Is Murdoch the prince of SA or "Emir" of Qatar?

    Is there anything that you will not equate with Fox News?

    My guess is that it was an investment, and if AJ tv took off, may be pulled altogether in favor of putting that money into AJ America.

    Actually it is quite a lot. The Murdoch's do not survive as head of the companies without the backing of Bin Talal. The Murdoch's also only own a minority of the stocks.. voting stocks too. So those 5-7% are very important.

    And dont forget.. Murdoch is a foreigner as well and only got American citizenship because non-American's can not own US news organisations.
