Last week, when asked about Glenn Beck calling President Obama "racist," Rupert Murdoch, chairman of Fox News Channel's parent company (News Corp) said "if you actually assess what he was talking about, [Beck] was right."1 On Tuesday, after his endorsement of Beck's race-baiting started to draw attention,2 Murdoch claimed, through a spokesperson, that he didn't mean he agrees with Beck.3 It's ridiculous -- what else could he have possibly meant? Murdoch calls the shots at Fox News, and he's just made it clear that Fox's problem with race starts in his office. Now that he's been caught, he's trying to play dumb -- he doesn't want to be held accountable for Beck's rhetoric, but he won't denounce or stop it either. It won't work, if we stand up. Tell Murdoch he has a choice -- he can stand by the fact that he agrees with Glenn Beck; or he can tell us why he doesn't and what he's going to do about it. If enough of us call him out, we can create a powerful conversation about Fox's race-baiting that will help us hold them accountable at the highest level. Please sign the petition to Murdoch, and ask your friends and family to do the same: http://www.colorofchange.org/murdoch/?id=2531-450623 Lou Dobbs leaving CNN for 'new opportunities'
