Rupert Murdoch Blasts the “Jewish Owned Press” for Not Being Pro-Israel Enough (UPDATED: Apologizes)

Our political Quote of the Day comes from media king Rupert Murdoch, who you can tell is a media King because unlike CNN’s former anchor Rick Sanchez his career isn’t in danger for taking a swipe at all those Jews he who he says owns the media and aren’t giving the kind of coverage he would want or instruct on his holdings when it comes to coverage of Israel. His Tweet:


“Why Is Jewish owned press so consistently anti-Israel in every crisis?”


But as The Daily Beast notes here,
offering a collection of Tweets, “Murdoch’s s foray into the Twitterverse has been marked by controversy and nonsense. By turns indignant, incomprehensible, and inane, Murdoch’s 140-character missives frequently vie with Donald Trump’s for first place as the Internet’s oddest musings.” Reports said the media was dismayed.

(UPDATE: He has now apologized, see Tweet at bottom of this post)

Remember what happened to CNN anchor Rick Sanchez’s job at CNN when he talked (in a more peppery way to be sure) about Jews in the media?

It’s always a dangerous subject.

Unless you’re Rupert Murdoch.

And then you get a complete pass.

PS. Rupert. I will admit it here. I OWN IN IT ALL. When MSNBC competes with you, I’m the one doing it. When CNN competes with you, I’M the doing it.

Morning Joe? Who do you think writes their scripts? Twitter? Anyone else whose name you see listed as an owner is a front man for me. I also own and run all the Hollywood studios, and it isn’t quite known that I also own and run Ballywood as well. Facebook? I’m the one who really owns it, and I’m about to start a special version for politicians: Twofacebook.

When you see Ed Schultz on MSNBC, he was a 120 lb weakling sneaking Denny’s saltines into his pockets before I decided to put him on one of the many talk show stations I own (I own all but a few) and give him a salary so he could bulk up. Who do you think pays Bob Schieffer’s salary? ME.

Forget about a guy from the BBC running the New York Times. I text him and the Times’ on-paper publishers daily instructions. I must admit I’m a very humble individual, so I pose as a lowly blogger, I write a weekly column that Cagle distributes nationally to newspapers and to further hide my real power I do family shows all over the country at fairs and serious thematic but funny shows for kids in schools. I look like I’m five foot one, but I’m really six foot three.

On media coverage of Israel. It’s all shell game. I own the country of Israel and the new President of Egypt gets emails from me each day from a special email address with my instructions of the week.

I lend Sheldon Adelson money (that’s the last time I’ll loan him money to give to Karl Rove).

My new goal is to make sure every non-Jewish child in America watches Adam Sandler movies.

The one thing I don’t own is my 18 year old female cat. No one owns her.

So you’ve hit on something.

But from now on why not aim your complaints at ME, because when it comes to the media, entertainment, and the survival of Chinese restaurants everywhere, I control it all.

With a name like “Gandelman” how could it be otherwise?

    RM didn’t have a clue with Romney, he doesn’t have a clue on Israel. The Wingnuts will chirp away on this…

  • sheknows

    ” the survival of Chinese restaurants everywhere”…funny!

    I think he’s getting the Jewish owned media mixed up with that equally proliferative business, the Jewish owned deli. Well, he is a moron, so what else is new……..

    Schmuck, that’s Yiddish for schmuck.

    No, Joe, I own the entire media; we are mexican reversos and you know what that means.

  • bluebelle

    Moderates appear to be waking up after the recent shellacking. The far right is more clueless than ever, and are digging an even bigger hole for themselves with the public. When is the GOP going to cut them loose before this unholy alliance results in total immolation??
    Chris Christie? Bobby Jindal?? Are you going to stay silent about this nonsense?? This is dangerously close to the Jews control the media, the Jews run Hollywood, the Jews control the international banking industry. Statements like Murdoch’s seed anti-semi
    tism in his semi-literate audience.

  • SteveK

    And… Jon Stewart is a Jew too…

    And don’t even get me going on Louis Black!

    Hahahahaha

    Then again Mr Murdoch is also known to be a realist and ultimately in the business of being a provider of entertainment content, no matter his own political views and has to date supported both the Tories and the Labor party in the UK when he saw fit, which is to say not even he is ideologically fixated but practically inclined, but to even assume that other media outlets are not in some way betrays contempt. But then again that’s the point, Jews are all suppose to hate themselves right?

    you wrote: “…Jews are all suppose to hate themselves right?…”

    Sorry, I dont get your point. This 19th century stereotype means what in our time?

  • DR. CLARISSA PINKOLA ESTÉS, Managing Editor of TMV, and Columnist

    oh my Jon Stewart too? oh oh. And a nearly totally Roman Catholic Supreme Court, whatever shall we do about the takeover of our country by the RC church …
