This Time, Rupert Murdoch REALLY Apologizes for Jewish Slur

Guess that kinda-sorta apology tweet just wasn’t enough.

As I wrote today, the media mogul tarnished his reputation with a stunningly offensive Twitter message on how the “Jewish owned press” was consistently “anti-Israel” in time of crisis. This raised such questions as: What Jewish-owned press? Anti-Israel for, what, twisted religious reasons? And, why doesn’t someone keep this 81-year-old News Corp. boss away from the Twitter?

Well, someone got to Rupe, because he finally figured out by this afternoon that he had to do a full grovel.
