Murdoch Tweets a Non-Apology

You can do better than that, Rupert. Media mogul and ham-handed tweeter Rupert Murdoch issued a Twitter non-apology Sunday after a message he sent Saturday sparked an instant response. Murdoch tweeted, “Why is Jewish owned press so consistently anti- Israel in every crisis?” as Israeli forces carried out airstrikes on Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip. In a mostly incomprehensible message that had a synonym for “sorry” tucked in there, Murdoch tweeted an attempted mea culpa Sunday: “‘,Jewish owned press’ have been sternly criticized, suggesting link to Jewish reporters. Don’t see this, but apologise unreservedly.”
