When the News Corp CEO wasn't defending Glenn Beck and agreeing that Obama is a “racist,” Murdoch also made this claim in the recent TV interview [emphasis added]:
REPORTER: Glenn Beck who you mentioned has called Barack Obama a racist, and he helped organize a protest against him and others on Fox have likened him (Obama) to Stalin is that…"
MURDOCH: No, no, no, not Stalin, I don't think, not one of our people.
Nobody at Fox News has ever likened Obama to Stalin. Murdoch appeared emphatic in making that point.
UPDATED: Here are even more examples of Fox News folks comparing Obama to Stalin.
Question: Is Murdoch just playing dumb, or does he really not know what's aired on Fox News?
UPDATED: And more.
