Rupert Murdoch walks away from right-wing bloggers

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

And specifically the ones last week, like John Hinderaker at Power Line, who claimed there was absolutely nothing wrong with the cartoon Murdoch's New York Post published which seemed to associate Obama with a dead, bullet-riddled monkey.

Hinderaker claimed Dems were just playing the race card. Murdoch today personally apologized for the cartoon, suggesting it never should have been published:

Last week, we made a mistake. We ran a cartoon that offended many people. Today I want to personally apologize to any reader who felt offended, and even insulted.

We anxiously await Power Line's response.
