Rupert Murdoch Apologizes: Apologizes For Tweet, The founder of the global News Corp. media empire, Rupert Murdoch, has issued an apology after suggesting that President Barack Obama isn’t a “real black president.”

Murdoch was praising Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson and his wife on Twitter Wednesday evening when he wrote: “Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black President who can properly address the racial divide?”

Later, Murdoch recommended a New York magazine article asking whether Obama has done enough for the African-American community.

On Thursday, Murdoch tweeted an apology, saying: “Personally find both men charming.”

Apologies! No offence meant. Personally find both men charming.
