Rupert Murdoch, the Australian billionaire and owner of Fox and Fox news had an interview in Australia and stood by Glenn Beck’s comments that Obama was a racist.

“On the racist thing, that caused a [unintelligible],” Murdoch said in an interview with his Sky News Australia over the weekend. “But [Obama] did make a very racist comment about blacks and whites and so on, which he said in his campaign he would be completely above. And that was something which perhaps shouldn’t have been said about the President, but if you actually assess what he was talking about, [Beck] was right.”

Murdoch did not elaborate and say which Obama quote he believed to be racist.
