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.

Peanut butter and chocolate sounded gross at first too but at last it's fucking delicious just like bacon and cream cheese.

cream cheese would just dilute the taste of bacon. nobody wants that.
