Where does Fox News stand on the “ground zero mosque”?

Yes, I know it isn’t actually a mosque, and it isn’t at ground zero, but a reader sent me an interesting question. As you may know, the second largest owner of Fox News is a Saudi Prince who happens to be a Muslem. This reader claims that Fox News has not mentioned the proposed “ground zero mosque” because their owner won’t let them. Is this true?

Has anyone heard anyone on Fox News speak out either for or (more likely) against the ground zero mosque? Has Fox News taken a position on it? I can find only a few articles that even mention it, and they are pretty neutral, like this article.

I’m really curious about this, but unfortunately I don’t watch TV (including Fox News).

I wonder what conservatives would think if they knew that Fox News was being censored by a Muslim?

UPDATE: Fox News agrees with Obama’s defense of the Mosque, saying that “He has to stand up for our Constitution”.

    The Daily Show did a clip montage of this on the 8/10 show, and I believe that it included clips from the Fox “News” channel. Clip should be available on the Comedy Central site.

    Here’s one that Hannity did against the Mosque. I guess everything is a radical agenda for him including, well, radical agendas.

    Watch Fox & Friends. They talk about it (and against it) pretty much every morning.
