Rupert Murdoch Supports Obama- WHAT?!

“He is a rock star. It’s fantastic. I love what he is saying about education. I don’t think he will win Florida…..but he will win in Ohio and the election. I am anxious to meet him. I want to see if he will walk the walk.”- Rupert Murdoch

On one hand, I am wary of Rupert Murdoch supporting Obama just as I am wary of Karl Rove heaping praise on HRC. However, the situations are different because there is really no incentive for Murdoch to support Obama, whereas it would benefit Republicans to support the losing Democratic candidate.

I say this because #1, Obama has publicly said that he supports reinforcing the Sherman Antitrust Act (divides businesses that have an unfair monopoly), a measure that could possibly sound the death knell for News Corps’ hegemony and that of Right-wing talk radio. In short, it gives Murdoch’s admiration for Obama credibility, however unlikely, because Obama supports an Act that could possibly ruin what Murdoch has created. One might ask themselves why Murdoch supports Obama, then, if there’s nothing in it for him?

But not so fast- maybe there is something in it for him. Maybe he, the right wing overlord, sees the error of electing someone like John McCain, who he says “has a lot of problems.” Maybe Murdoch’s red, red blood has begun coursing Obama blue…
