News Corp. head Rupert Murdoch weighed in on Saturday night's Republican presidential debate, with questions about Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Chris Christie.

Murdoch was complimentary of all the candidates on the stage in his first tweet on the subject on Sunday morning, saying all lifted their game.



He then said businessman Donald Trump looked more presidential than he has in past debates, and even gave Rubio a good review, though most thought the Florida senator stumbled amid criticism from Chris Christie that he has simply memorized short speeches on various subjects. Murdoch did mention that shortcoming.



Murdoch liked Cruz, but worried about the fact that his Senate colleagues don't seem to like him. He saw former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as strong.



He didn't seem impressed with Christie's attacks, including on Rubio. But he did like Ohio Gov. John Kasich and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.



That said, the global media mogul thought all the candidates could have been better on the subject of Islamic terrorism.
