Murdoch Says He Loves Jeb Bush For President, Could Live With Hillary Clinton

Says he loves Jeb Bush because of his education policies:

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch says former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and 2012 vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan are two of his top picks to be the 2016 GOP presidential nominee, but he is prepared to accept it if Democratic former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton became the next president.

In an interview with Fortune magazine released Thursday, the 83-year-old executive chairman of News Corp. also said he could even envision himself supporting Clinton but "it would depend on the Republican candidate totally."

Murdoch said he also has great esteem for Bush.

"I think he's a man of very fine character. He was a great governor. And I particularly like his policy on education, which I'm hardest on. My number one."

When it comes to the former first lady taking over the White House, Murdoch said he is prepared to accept it.

"I could live with Hillary as president. We have to live with who we get. We don't have any choice," he said.

Murdoch raised money for Hillary Clinton back in the day for her Senate campaign, so not surprised that he could find a way to make an accommodation and support her in the end.

And as for Jeb, well, yeah, I would think Murdoch would love his education policy proposals.

They're the kind of thing that would help Murdoch make millions at his for-profit education division.


  1. Who cares what Murdoch thinks? He is unfit to run a major corporation. He has criminal tendencies.

    1. Coming at it from the perspective of, if Murdoch likes 'em (or can live with them), has to be something bad about them...

  2. Wonder if he could live with a progressive like Bernie Sanders. I doubt it. Maybe it'd do the country good to elect Senator Sanders, just to see the look on King Rupert's ugly mug just before he goes flatline.
