“Over the years, some of my wildest critics seem to have assumed I am Jewish,” Rupert Murdoch said when he accepted an award from the American Jewish Committee. “At the same time, some of my closest friends wish I were. So tonight, let me set the record straight: I live in New York. I have a wife who craves Chinese food. And people I trust tell me I practically invented the word ‘chutzpah.’”
The media mogul has taken in awards from innumerable Jewish organizations for his philanthropy and support, and his networks like “Fox News” tend to be the least biased toward Israel of any major media outlets.
This year, Murdoch was offered the chance to buyIsraeli daily “Yediot Aharonot” (he passed) and his son pledged $1 million to the ADL following the alt-right march in Charlottesville. (Photo credit: Wikimedia Commons.)
