Once again, News Corp owner Rupert Murdoch was giving Mitt Romney some advice via Twitter. Last week, Murdoch used the social media platform to criticize Romney for "playing it safe" and longed for the days of Rick Santorum. Over the weekend he tweeted, "Met Romney last week. Tough O Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from team and hires some real pros. Doubtful." Murdoch also weighed in on Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and their impending divorce. He tweeted, "Scientology back in news. Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hierarchy." A few hours later, he issued a follow-up claiming his mention of Scientology had prompted "hundreds of attacks." More from NYMag's Daily Intel blog.
