NEW YORK: The founder of the global News Corp. media empire, Rupert Murdoch has suggested that the current US President, Barack Obama, isn’t a “real black president.”
The media moghul while praising the Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson and his wife on Twitter on Wednesday evening, wrote: “Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black President who can properly address the racial divide?”
Murdoch is the founder of Fox News Channel, and News Corp’s publications include The New York Post and The Wall Street Journal.
The 84-year-old Murdoch has praised Carson on Twitter before, calling him “irreproachable on background, achievements, character, vision.” (With AP inputs)
