Fox should buy al-Jazeera

Instead of the government spending hundreds of millions of dollars on creating an Arabic al-Jazeera competitor, they should just let News Corporation (Fox) buy them. Their programming would change dramatically. In fact, maybe Fox will be able to soon—the FCC is about to give even more ownership latitude to the big ten. It reminds me of the immortal words of Princess Leia, "The more you tighten your grip [Big 10], the more star systems will slip through your fingers." (Though I'm pretty sure News Corporation owns that quote.) [first link via rc3.org]
