Rupert Murdoch says Kevin Rudd 'all over the place' in Australia poll
SYDNEY (AFP) - Media baron Rupert Murdoch on Tuesday threw his support firmly behind the conservative opposition leader Tony Abbott ahead of Australia's upcoming election, saying Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was "all over the place".
Mr Murdoch's powerful News Corp Australia newspapers, which have the largest circulation of any media group in the country, have already called for voters to "kick out" Mr Rudd's centre-left Labor government.
But the Australian-born octogenarian went further on Tuesday, talking about the character of the two men who are facing off in the Sept 7 polls.
"Conviction politicians hard to find anywhere," Mr Murdoch tweeted.
