Rupert Murdoch, in a Flurry of Tweets, First Says Obama Is Not a ‘Real Black President’ and Then Apologizes for Saying It

Rupert Murdoch, the 84-year-old media mogul, is no stranger to controversy, and he was in the midst of one he self-created yesterday on Twitter.

Murdoch’s first tweet, yesterday afternoon, read, “Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black President who can properly address the racial divide? And much else.”

Ben Carson, a doctor, is running for the Republican presidential nomination.

Murdoch followed that up with this tweet yesterday, “Read New York magazine for minority community disappointment with POTUS.”

After a firestorm of negativity to his tweets, Murdoch tweeted this morning, “Apologies! No offence meant. Personally find both men charming.”
