Remember back in July, Glenn Beck called President Obama a racist? Of course you do… it resulted in Beck losing 80 advertisers! So, now, why in the world would the CEO of Fox News‘ parent company, Rupert Murdoch, publicly defend Glenn Beck and agree with Beck’s assertion that Obama is a racist?
“On the racist thing, that caused a (unintelligible–grilling?). But he (Obama) did make a very racist comment. Ahhh..about, you know, blacks and whites and so on, which he said in his campaign he would be completely above. And um, that was something which perhaps shouldn’t have been said about the President, but if you actually assess what he was talking about, he was right.“
Either Murdoch is incredibly stupid, which is debatable considering the whole Google issue, or he’s in it for the ratings… Since we’re talking about it, it’s a safe bet he said it for shock value. Of course, there’s a strong possibility that Murdoch is completely off his rocker.
In any event, feel free to tell him how you feel!
