Yesterday on Fox Business, host Neil Cavuto interviewed Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the second-largest shareholder of Fox News-parent company News Corp, to discuss a wide variety of current events.
Before the interview, Cavuto correctly issued a disclaimer, noting for his audience that Bin Talal “holds nearly seven percent equity stake in News Corp.” But today on his Fox News show (which commands a far larger audience than Fox Business), Cavuto re-aired parts of yesterday’s interview and offered no such disclaimer.
Rather, Fox thought it was more important to air a segment of the interview where Cavuto coaxed Bin Talal into saying Fox Business is his favorite business news channel:
BIN TALAL: CNBC is my number two favorite, after you.
CAVUTO: Can you do an ad for us? So CNBC is my second place for business news, we’ll work that into our promos.
