New York: Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal mocked Republican candidate Donald Trump for his attempts to expose the ownership structure of Fox News by posting a digitally manipulated image of the Prince and his sister posing next to news anchor Megyn Kelly.
The image, which is photoshopped, contained the words: “Most people don’t know that the co-owner of Fox News is Prince Al-Waleed of Saudi Arabia here with his sister and with host Megyn Kelly. In case you only watch Fox News and you missed it everywhere else. Google it.”
The post comes amid tensions between the real estate tycoon and Fox News, the TV channel that hosted the latest Republican debate on Thursday night. Mr Trump chose to skip the debate, an unprecedented move in US poltiical history. Fox News responded that it would not be “terrorized” by demands from politicians.
The Prince responded with a tweet: “Trump: You base your statements on photoshopped pics?! I bailed you out twice; a 3rd time, maybe?”
