Since logging on in January, Rupert Murdoch has used his captivating Twitter feed mostly to blurt genial disapproval of the not-small number of things he finds irksome. A collection of his short-form grousing grouped by target.

Romney

1 Jan
Good to see Santorum surging in Iowa. Regardless of policies, all debates showed principles, consistency and humility like no other.

2 Jan
Can’t resist this tweet, but all Iowans think about Rick Santorum. Only candidate with genuine big vision for country.

4 Jan
Well, well! Values DO count. Santorum result pretty amazing. Policy very similar to Reagan. Now start to sound like him.

11 Jan
Can’t blame Newt G too much. He was carpet bombed with negatives by Romney. Brilliant, visionary but just too much baggage! And erratic.

17 Jan
When will Romney get a manager to prepare him? Fancy not being ready for questions about taxes or felons! Damaging.

25 Jan
Romney’s tax returns might kill his chances. See Republican establishment panic now!

4 Feb
Romney has plenty of brains, but want to see heart and stomach.

20 Feb
From distance, Santorum doing great. Values really do count in America, and not sneered at as in parts of Europe. Win Michigan game over.

24 Jun
When is Romney going to look like a challenger? Seems to play everything safe, make no news except burn off Hispanics.

24 Jun
Easy for Romney to spell out restoration of the American dream and bash incompetent administration. But not a word!

2 Jul
Romney people upset at me! Of course I want him to win, save us from socialism, etc. but should listen to good advice and get stuck in!


Scientology

1 Jul
Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop. Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people.

1 Jul
Since Scientology tweet hundreds of attacks. Expect they will increase and get worse and maybe threatening. Still stick to my story.


Content Pirates

14 Jan
So Obama has thrown in his lot with Silicon Valley paymasters who threaten all software creators with piracy, plain thievery.

4 Jan
Piracy leader is Google who streams movies free, sells advts around them. No wonder pouring millions into lobbying.

14 Jan
Just been to google search for mission impossible. Wow, several sites offering free links. I rest my case.

17 Jan
Big bipartisan majorities both houses sold out by POTUS for search engines. How about 2.2 m workers in entertainment industry? Piracy rules

17 Jan
Don’t care about people not buying movies, programs or newspapers, just stealing them.

23 Jan
No excuses for phone hacking. No argument. No excuses either for copyright stealing, but plenty of ignorant argument!


Obama

2 Jan
While Obama feeling courageous, why not follow his first class education policy. US’ absolute biggest crisis. No read, no write, no jobs.

8 Jan
Obama out to lunch! 90 percent right on great issues of education and immigration. Bipartisan support mostly there. Why no leadership?

4 Feb
What does POTUS think he’s doing upsetting and energizing 77 million Catholics. Ideology on show. If Romney has brains, this is a killer

3 Apr
Obama seems to agree with consensus view obamacare going down. Bullying supremes silly. People trust judges over politicians any time.

8 May
POTUS seems to be allowing campaign advisers set national policy instead of listening to top professionals. Unlike Bill Clinton or Bush.

2 Jun
Did White House leak highest security secret possible yesterday about cyber attacks on Iran? If so, dangerous, maybe scandalous, game.


Typo Scolds

9 Jan
Re complaints about my spelling! Problem is my pathetic typing. Sorry, if anyone really cares.

16 Jan
Seems like universal anger with Optus from all sorts of normal supporters. Maybe backing pirates a rare miscalculation by friend Axelrod.

16 Jan
Yes, thanks, of course I meant POTUS. Somehow iPad changed my spelling. I should have checked. Sorry.


Media Enemies

2 Jan
Got to watch Foxnews at 5 EST. Liberal Bob Beckel and team great replacement for Beck and much more fun.

8 Jan
Ron Paul Good point on racism, as well as great put down to snotty Stephanopolous. Sorry if spelling wrong!

4 Feb
Ignore Thomson Reuters. Thomsons chickened out of GB decades ago, except for oil money. Now control Reuters and no idea what bias they push

31 Jan
F.T. Financial Times or Fawlty Towers? Sun on Sunday story today 100 percent wrong.

28 Mar
Seems every competitor and enemy piling on with lies and libels. So bad, easy to hit back hard, which preparing.

28 Mar
Enemies many different agendas, but worst old toffs and right wingers who still want last century’s status quo with their monopolies.

29 Mar
Let’s have it on! Choice, freedom of thought and markets, individual personal responsibility

29 Mar
Proof you can’t trust anything in Australian Fairfax papers, unless you are just another crazy.

5 May
Digital revenue down at Washington Post and NYT. Up strongly at WSJ. What gives?
