Rupert Murdoch unhappy with coverage of Gaza conflict

Fox News

The chairman and CEO of Fox News is unhappy with media bias. 

Rupert Murdoch is furious with the way the conflict in Gaza between Israel and the people that want to be called Palestine is being covered.

“Why Is Jewish owned press so consistently anti- Israel in every crisis?” he tweeted yesterday. Murdoch is a dedicated ally to Israel and earlier in the day voice displeasure with how CNN and the Associated Press had covered the situation, tweeting that the  “Middle East ready to boil over any day. Israel position precarious. Meanwhile watch CNN and AP bias to point of embarrassment.”

Shockingly, Murdoch also brought President Barack Obama into the situation as well, asking if Obama's "friends in Egypt" could stop the attacks on Israel.

Should anyone at Fox News ever have the audacity to criticize others for being biased? I have not been tracking how each media network covers the situation in Israel, but it seems like there is blame to go around on both sides - but even saying that makes me anti-Israel. Obviously I wish that the Middle East could find peace and that children on both sides would not be raised surrounded by so much hate and angry rhetoric.

I was stunned reading this. Fox News calling anyone biased is absurdity to the highest degree.

Fair and Balanced, my A**

Wow! Rupert 'Fair and Balanced' Murdoch calling anyone biased is HILARIOUS! This man has absolutely ZERO credibility on any subject except turning perversion to profit. He is a News pornographer. I would call him an A**clown, but that would besmirtch A**clowns everywhere. No one since Goebbels has been as successful a propagandist as Rupert and his children. Good luck, Rupert, in overcoming the global liberal conspiracy against your empire!

"the BBC news channel have a very pro palestinian bias"!!!!! Thats why the bbc treat every statement that the idf give out as fact and barely ever give a palestinian perspective. Thats why they seldom have any palestinian spokespeople. Thats why they claim that hamas rockets started the conflict when they know very well it was the israeli attack on nov 8th that started things. Thats why they deliberately hide the common knowledge that Israel has been planning this conflict (with usa) for the last six months at least - hence the attack on khartoum rocket factory two months ago and the us war games to practise their rocket defense system. get real - the bbc is completely jewish
