Rupert Murdoch claims "Jewish Owned Media" is Anti-Israel

"Rupert Murdoch's latest bid at stirring up controversy on Twitter had the media world scratching its head Saturday night. As the Israel/Gaza conflict headed to a fifth day, the newspaper mogul expressed frustration at coverage of the crisis in characteristically incendiary style:

@rupertmurdoch: Why Is Jewish owned press so consistently anti- Israel in every crisis?

It is unclear who the resolutely pro-Israel Murdoch was referring to, though earlier in the day he took issue with specific outlets:

@rupertmurdoch: Middle East ready to boil over any day. Israel position precarious. Meanwhile watch CNN and AP bias to point of embarrassment.*

Is Rupert Murdoch confused about journalism, or is he just trying to be inflammatory to his media competitors? Or is there a real or perceived anti-Israel (or pro-Israel) bias in the media? Steve Oh (COO of The Young Turks) and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) discuss the media coverage.

Goddamn Jew-run media. Right?

So... yes, would be the answer.
