In an interview with his own Sky News Australia, News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch said he agreed with Glenn Beck's view that President Barack Obama's has made racist comments.
“He did make a very racist comment about blacks and whites, etc, which, he said in his campaign he’d be completely above,” Murdoch told the interviewer. “And, that was something which perhaps shouldn’t have been said about the president. If you actually assess what he (Beck) was talking about, he was right.”

Beck made the comments in July after the arrest of Obama’s close friend, the scholar Henry Louis Gates, by a white Cambridge police officer. Beck was making the larger point that instead of letting the facts speak for themselves, Obama immediately drew the most sinister interpretation of the police officer’s motives.
"This president, I think, has exposed himself as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture," Beck said. "I don't know what it is."
"I'm not saying he doesn't like white people," Beck said. "I'm saying he has a problem. He has a -- this guy is, I believe, a racist."
On Wednesday, a News Corp. spokesman stressed to Politico that Murdoch “does not at all, for a minute, think the president is a racist.”
