      That's pretty cool actually, go FOX. Somebody is doing something right. To have so much to show that's great. 

      But I'm sure if you look at other companies, you will see a similarly long list of companies under ther umbrella.

        The difference is that the other ones aren't trying to buy the government.

          I like fox news, I don't just get one side of the story there, they show both sides a lot of the time.  I watch other news channels as well but they seem to be so one sided most of the time. But to each his own, I'm just glad we have a choice.

        lol they are publishers.

        "HarperCollins Publishers is one of the world’s leading English-language publishers. Headquartered in New York, the company is a subsidiary of News Corporation. The house of Mark Twain, the Brontë sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein, and Margaret Wise Brown, HarperCollins was founded in New York City in 1817 as J. and J. Harper, later Harper & Brothers, by James and John Harper. In 1987, as Harper & Row, it was acquired by News Corporation. The worldwide book group was formed following News Corporation’s 1990 acquisition of the British publisher William Collins & Sons. Founded in 1819, William Collins & Sons published a range of Bibles, atlases, dictionaries, and reissued classics, expanding over the years to include legendary authors, such as H. G. Wells, Agatha Christie, J. R. R. Tolkien, and C. S. Lewis. HarperCollins has publishing groups in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia/New Zealand, and India." -source link http://www.harpercollins.com/footer/companyprofile.aspx

        Well one thing you can be sure of with Murdoch at the helm. There won't be anyone overpaid, including the tax department! smile

    thanks for the list Sandra. I didn't realize these were all under the same umbrella. I don't watch any of those except National Geographic... and possibly some of the movies.

    What is scary is how many politicians are owned by whom!  Not talking TV networks either.

    Fox

    Don't they own the dumbest people and channel their bullshit through them?

    Their performance during the Iraq conflict was nothing short of sickening and it had nothing to do with delivering a balanced view of war and everything to do with supporting a morally corrupt government.

    You know, I didn't know a person could own the DOW. 

    Let's see what happened in July 2007
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co … 02075.html

    http://dealbook.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/ … lyst-says/

    What is traded through DOW?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dow_Jones_ … al_Average

    Let's assume the President at the time knew about the pending crash of 2008...

    http://money.cnn.com/2008/09/29/markets … s_newyork/

    A 700 billion dollar bailout was reject by the House but why???!!!

    http://money.cnn.com/2008/09/28/news/ec … 2008092822

    "Pelosi said the provisions added by Congress will protect taxpayers from having to pay for the bailout." - the bill was rejected Sept. 29, 2008.

    "But it was shot down, with lawmakers voting largely along party lines, with House Republicans mostly voting against it and House Democrats mostly voting for it."


    Why would the Republican's vote against a "bailout" that would have protected the taxpayers from paying for it? 

    Well after the House Republican's rejected the bill that would have protected the taxpayers, WallStreet lost 1.2 Trillion! 

    Interesting...

    More interesting is the prime suspect being Murdoch Fraud New Corp... I mean FOX news Corp. recent takeover of the DOW, the sudden change of heart from the Republican's, the taxes payers screaming bloody murder but supporting the ones who set everyone up to fail.

      sandra rinckposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      There use to be a law that limited how much special interest and individuals could contribute to their political party that was recently lifted while Fraud News was trifling over Mosque and BP and Obama's personal beliefs and heritage, 'refudating' tax cuts for the middle income and poor while preaching 'small business is the back bone and small business needs help... all the while allowing the GOP to block help to small businesses and low and middle income folks and 'refudiating' the Dems. proposals to unlock small business lenders from giving loans to small businesses to help people get back on their feet...

      Then Fraud News Corp owner Murdoch makes a 1 million dollar individual contribution to the GOP while his 'slaves' scream the government is trying to take over the world because Obama is a 'muslim terrorist' and the dems favor special interest spending and preaching about 'free market principals' all the while allowing for a private corporations like Fraud News Corp. to buy the government while allowing his 'slaves' to suffer the consequences by having the Republicans filibuster all legislation that would allow 95% of America to recover.

      Why you ask?  Well, let's see here, if big corporate infrastructure were broken down allowing small businesses to compete and breaking the monopoly that Murdoch has then ultimately he would lose money...hehem...*cough* redistribution of wealth through healthy competition and breaking up the "too big to fail" movement that the Tea Party try to rally against but ultimately support.

      Ironic?
