Rupert Murdoch suggests Obama isn't 'real black president'

FILE - In this Oct. 14, 2011 file photo, News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch delivers a keynote address at the National Summit on Education Reform in San Francisco. Sibling rivalries. A quest for power. An affair. A scandal. The turbulent life of the 84-year-old billionaire and his heirs emerged back in the spotlight this week as the aging media magnate readied to hand over the keys to his empire. The media circus around the Murdochs shares many parallels with paparazzi coverage of the royals, including the family’s seats of power in the U.K. and in Commonwealth nation Australia, but the jostling for control in Murdoch’s family is different. The eldest child’s inheritance is never ensured. (AP Photo/Noah Berger, File) The media mogul makes the comment while comparing GOP candidate Ben Carson to the president.

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks during a community forum campaign event at Cornell College in Mt Vernon, Iowa By Amanda Becker WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will propose a tax on high-frequency trading, her campaign said late Wednesday.
