Rupert Murdoch Back on Twitter Attacking Hillary Clinton, Seems Confused, Doesn’t Mention Retirement


Rupert Murdoch is back on Twitter for the first time since Thursday when news leaked that his sons were taking over his company.

Murdoch didn’t mention any of that, however. He has not commented since the story broke that his sons were succeeding him. The story wasn’t supposed to be revealed until the fall, so its release on Thursday took everyone at News Corp by surprise. Someone leaked it, probably from within, to CNBC.

Today Murdoch started bashing Hillary Clinton, but his Tweets weren’t well typed or cogent. And that’s not like Uncle Rupert. Maybe he’s just drowsy from all the Geritol.
