Fox News Owner Rupert Murdoch Touts Michael Bloomberg for President

Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit - Day 1

 

Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch On Sunday, declared Michael Bloomberg, the alternative “billionaire candidate”, should be running for president.

He tweeted: “With Trump becoming very serious candidate, it’s time for next billionaire candidate, Mike Bloomberg to step into ring. Greatest mayor.”

When critics wondered why he would back him as the “greatest, ” Murdoch replied:

“Agree much about Bloomberg, nannystate, etc, but still a great philanthropic executive who, with Guiliani [sic], made NY the greatest.”

A couple of hours later, he followed up again with: “I did not say I would vote for him! Just a friend I admire.”

Former Chicago Tribune editor James Warren pricked, “It’s that Murdoch populist streak and his love of riches-to-mega-riches stories as warmly manifested by the former mayor. We do think Bloomberg should run, if only to assure that the National Rifle Association goes broke trying to trash him.”
