It was hard to watch O’reilly last night. The real interesting story was on the news crawler at the bottom of the screen.
That’s where Fox relegated the possible precedent setting custody case involving 17 year old Rifqa Bary. She’s the girl who feared for her life at the hands of her Muslim family after she converted to Christianity.
If all you had to go by was the tiny attention Fox gave this story, you’d think young Miss Bary was flying back to Ohio at this very moment.
The real story here is the thread of hope the judge gave at the last minute!
Rifqa won’t be going back to Ohio until her parents can produce the proper papers proving they are in this country legally. Up until now they’ve been dragging their feet on this even risking contempt of court charges.
But who needs FNC anyway?! This is the 21st Century! This is the blogging age! We have super blogger Pamela Geller live blogging the case as best as she can, courtroom restrictions and all.
For those who still think Fox is really an arm of the Republican Party or is at the hands of a group of Christian conservative zealots, this is all the proof they need to the contrary.
Fox News is a for profit enterprise whose main agenda is to MAKE MONEY! This is not a criticism, it’s just a fact. Unlike the not for profit liberal enterprises like NPR, PBS and MSNBC, Fox goes with what sells. That would be center right news coverage spiced up with some good old sexy gossip.
So even though the Rifqa Bary custody case could very well be yet another sign of the Islamization of the West. Or worse yet it it could be the real introduction of Sharia law into the USA. That doesn’t matter, Fox goes with what sells.
