A satellite television company was to begin broadcasting the Fox News channel Thursday following complaints from Israeli viewers of an anti-Israel bias in CNN coverage. The decision by Yes Satellite Television was taken in response to remarks by CNN founder Ted Turner, who said both Israel and the Palestinians are engaged in terrorism, Israel Radio reported. Turner subsequently apologized for his comments.
