Is Rupert Murdoch An Anti Semite - A Bad Tweet

Sometimes kids say the funniest things: sometime, so do adults.  And sometimes, when they don't realize it, they can forget who they are talking to, or more importantly, who may be listening.  Mitt Romney forgot that when he mentioned the 47%.  And now it it Rupert Murdoch's turn.  Murdoch, the head of a media conglomerate, and one who clearly should understand the power of communication, got caught in the headlights.  His tweet, “Why is Jewish owned press so consistently anti-Israel in every crisis?”, begs the question, what were you thinking.  But Mr. Murdoch, you own huge media conglomerates including The Wall Street Journal, The Times of London, and even Fox News.

And while Mr. Murdoch did back track, perhaps what we really want to hear is your editorial telling us what you really believe.  The trouble with 180 characters, it's hard to know more than a a nice headline; it's time to fill in the blanks and tell us your full position.
