Skip to comments.Murdoch Apologizes for 'Jewish-Owned Media' Tweet

Founder and chief executive of News Corporation, Rupert Murdoch, apologized for posting a message on Twitter slamming the "Jewish owned press" for its anti Israel coverage of the Gaza conflict.
Murdoch reportedly received angry responses to his tweet, which asked: "Why Is Jewish owned press so consistently anti-Israel in every crisis?"
"Middle East ready to boil over any day. Israel position precarious. Meanwhile watch CNN and AP bias to point of embarrassment," Murdoch wrote in a second tweet in support of the Jewish state.
Due to negative backlash, the media mogul tweeted an apology ...

If you consider what he said, it sounds like a PRO-Semitic comment to me. Which evidently angered all those liberal, self-hating, anti-semitic Jews.
We have many Jewish friends. None of them support Israel in the middle east and it puzzles us because we (Wife and I) support Israel. No one ever explains it, either. They change the subject.
The apology should have said something like: “I’m sorry that media outlets owned by self-loathing Jews, are so anti-Israel”.
We have a name for people like that, they are called “Self hating Jews” Jews who hate their own faith..I have family in Israel, having to hide in bunkers because these terrorist scum keep on throwing rocket after rocket at them
Well, Rupert, I liked it.
Followed by a list of the outlets to which he was referring in order of egregiosity, the NYT topping it.
I remain unconvinced that Jews own the media.
Now, lets say I’m wrong. What would that indicate other than that they were smart business people, had applied themselves, and done exactly what we want people to do in our society.
The whole premise is a loser argument from a-z.
I’m not talking about the forum here, but do we as a people believe in free enterprise or not? Murdock should. He’s been exercising that right for decades.
When I was younger, I never owned my part-Irish heritage because of the terrorist fighting in Northern Ireland. I didn't know enough about the issues to understand what was going on, so I disavowed the whole thing. Perhaps many American Jews are the same way -- they are ethnically Jews, but do not practice the Jewish religion and do not feel any obligation to be stereotyped into taking sides into a war zone. I'm not saying this is good or bad; just sayin.'
I thought the Times was owned by an Episcopalian.
I thought the Jesuits owned them, and the Jews were their front men.....
You have superbly stated his case. This is the first I’ve read about his tweet, but I know precisely what he meant and I concur. The NYT is a sterling example.
Those people make me sick. They're almost always truly obnoxious, just like all godless haters.
Creepy Pinch was raised as an Episcopalian not as a Jew.
what’s black is white and what’s white is black.....
..some bowed to Nebuchadnezzar’s golden image, some chose the fiery furnace—you decide who was the true children of Israel...
It’s the Freemasons, I tells ya...
You see many of them, like Roseanne Barr and others who despise their own religion..if they actually went to Israel and lived life under constant rocket fire and being surrounded by countries who want them dead maybe they would think differently..these are the same Jews who vote Democrat because they could give a rats behind about Israel..the same ones who can witness the DNC boo Israel and not even care
Rupert just smacked down the JINO population. haha! They had it coming.
