Murdoch May Endorse Obama

Reported by Ellen - May 30, 2008 -

In what could only be described as a possibly stunning setback for Sean Hannity, the Wall Street Journal's MarketWatch column wrote yesterday, "Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corp, says he could endorse Democratic Sen. Barack Obama for president in several of his newspapers, including the New York Post and The Wall Street Journal, according to an interview published in Silicon Alley Insider, a business blog."

"...The Wall Street Journal, which has one of the most consistently conservative editorial pages in the country, has not endorsed anyone for president since Herbert Hoover. The Post endorsed Obama in the New York primary over favorite daughter Hillary Clinton."

I guess Murdoch thinks there's more to consider in a presidential election than who your pastor is or with whom you gave a speech.
