Media mogul Murdoch savages Biden via Twitter

Source: Agence France-Presse

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter on Saturday to savage the Obama-Biden campaign, appearing to throw his full support behind Mitt Romney little more than three weeks from election day.

Mr. Murdoch accused Vice President Joe Biden of lying about the administration’s relationship with Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, and of also not telling the truth about last month’s deadly attack on the US consulate in Libya.

“Nightmare for Israel if Obama wins. Biden outright lied about personal relations with Bibi. Susan Rice for State real nightmare,” Murdoch wrote on the microblogging service.

... In the second of four tweets reeled off within 18 minutes, Mr. Murdoch lambasted President Barack Obama and his aides for their handling of the aftermath of the Benghazi consulate attack that killed four Americans including ambassador Chris Stevens.

1. I smell Romney

Looks like the Romney campaign is enlisting big business honchos to tweet negative stuff about the Obama administration. Jack Welch chipped in last week about the unemployment numbers. Look for more of these to come.

10. I think you are confusing boss with servant.

Romney the super-rich hedge fund vulture may qualify as one of the bosses. His own, in this case.

Romney of the Romney campaign, however, lives at the mercy of NEWSCORP and the other media conglomerates. He's Murdoch's more than Murdoch is his.

This is only one element of Rupert Murdoch's never-ending Attack On America.

20. We are saying the same thing

I'm not confusing anything. We're basically saying the same thing. Big business honchos are chipping in to get one of their own elected. There are others who also pull the strings. Murdoch is just one of them, along with the Koch brothers and all the rest.

14. Depends how you count, but 10-15 percent.

1) Disney-ABC, 2) NBC-Universal (GE is still a partner, I think, as is MS), 3) Viacom-CBS, 4) Time-Warner, 5) Sony and 6) this abominable slime-crawling motherfuckbeastfromhades are responsible for 90+ percent of the network TV programming by audience and 90+ percent of the movie box office, plus I'd have to say 80-ish percent of the TV news (counting local news affiliates) and I'd think something like a quarter each of the radio and the print news, when you count re-prints. Maybe I'm high on the print side. Hope so. (To get almost all media in the country, add Bertelsmann, the telecoms and cable companies, Apple, MS, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, AOL-Huffington, Clear Channel and the print dinosaurs of Gannett, NYT, WaPo, Knight-Ridder and Hearst...)

Murdoch in USA = FOX + FOXNEWS + WSJ + NY POST + ??? some other business-oriented news properties I forget.

But no, he'll just keep offering his underlings up for sacrifice until he croaks of natural causes. There is no justice for the rich.

12. Murdoch Is Out Of His League In Foreign Policy

Why all of the huffing and puffing about Libya? Yes, 4 Americans were killed which is tragic but in the scope of things this was really a small scale attack. Compare and contrast that attack with the embassy attacks in Niarobi and Tanzania, the attack on the Cole, the marine barracks in Lebanon or 9/11 itself. For that matter compare it against the theatre massacre in Aurora, CO. So it is time to get real on things like this and keep the eye on the ball. Today in Florida the Log Cabin Republican organization has an ad out showing the dead Ambassador's body being dragged around Libya. It shows a brain disease on the part of the Republicans to be attempting to make such hay on a minor unfortunate incident. Murdoch is just piling on here.

When that desiccated hate-mongering piece of crap Murdoch doesn't like something someone has done, that means the person has scored big-time. Any decent person would be horrified to have Murdoch's approval!
