Rupert Murdoch: 'Why Is Jewish Owned Press So Consistently Anti-Israel In Every Crisis?'

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter Saturday to criticize the press's reporting of hostilities in Israel.

One tweet in particular raised eyebrows on both sides of the aisle:

I'm not sure why Murdoch felt the need to put "Jewish owned" in his comment. Regardless of who the proprietors are, America's media have been consistently anti-Israel for decades.

That said, Murdoch tweeted a bit earlier

Makes you wonder if Murdoch saw the NewsBusters piece about CNN's Ashleigh Banfield foolishly stating Friday that Jerusalem isn't the capital of Israel.

As for the Associated Press, he likely was referring to its clumsy handling of the same issue Friday.
