Media mogul Murdoch savages Biden via Twitter
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Media mogul Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter on Saturday to savage the Obama-Biden campaign, appearing to throw his full support behind Mitt Romney little more than three weeks from election day.
The 81-year-old News Corporation boss accused Vice-President Joe Biden of lying about the administration's relationship with Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, and over the deadly attack on the United States consulate in Libya.
"Nightmare for Israel if Obama wins. Biden outright lied about personal relations with Bibi. Susan Rice for State real nightmare," Mr Murdoch wrote on the microblogging service.
Ms Rice, the US ambassador to the United Nations, has been mentioned as a possible successor to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who said she will leave her post after the upcoming election.
