Rupert Murdoch apologized Sunday for a tweet in which he had singled out the “Jewish-owned press” for providing “anti-Israel” coverage.

 

“‘Jewish owned press’ have been sternly criticised, suggesting link to Jewish reporters,” the media mogul tweeted. “Don’t see this, but apologise unreservedly.”

 

Murdoch, who has offered a string of tweets supporting Israel in the wake of turmoil there, on Saturday had slammed the “Jewish-owned” press’s coverage of events in Israel and Gaza.

 

“Why Is Jewish owned press so consistently anti- Israel in every crisis?” he wrote.

 

It was not clear which “Jewish” media he was referencing.
