Saudi Royal With Stake in Fox News Fired by Saudis for MuBros Ties

One of the few Saudi royals with a familiar name is experiencing a spot of bother:
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has fired the director of an Islamic TV channel for his role as the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait. 
He wrote Sunday on his Twitter account that he sacked Tarek Al-Suwaidan "for admitting he belongs to the Brotherhood terrorist movement." 
Al-Suwaidan, a Kuwaiti, was the director general of Al-Resalah channel, which belongs to Alwaleed's Rotana Group — a large pan-Arab media conglomerate based in Riyadh...
Funny how his MuBros ties are too much for the Saudis but seem to be okey-dokey with Fox.
