Murdoch voting for Obama?
Stranger things have happened..
Murdoch’s not-quite-but-almost endorsement of Barack Obama for president.
The founder -- and defender -- of Fox News said he expected Obama to win in a landslide, citing widespread unhappiness with the current administration and his disenchantment with Republican contender John McCain. Murdoch added that after a long career in the Senate, McCain had been forced to compromise too much and doesn’t stand for much. Murdoch even nonchalantly owned up to influencing the New York Post to back Obama in the New York primary.
Murdoch -- a new U.S. citizen -- said he was leaning toward actually voting for Obama in November, and would know in the next six months.
