Darn auto-correct! Rupert Murdoch: ‘Let’s compare species on Romney, Obama’

That darn Autocorrect! Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter today and had an Autocorrect malfunction. Most sane people gave him a bit of good-natured ribbing.

Umm – what? “@rupertmurdoch: Romney, Obama. Some species to compare, please. Courage and honesty needed"

No conspiracy theorists yet, but the race-baiters sure came out of the woodwork.

@nytjim @davidclinchnews @rupertmurdoch is Ruppy insinuating Obama is a different species?

@EddieRobson @Subintellectual @Exterminieren To me, second sentence mean need "courage/honesty" to compare Obama/Romney to other "species".

— James Cooray Smith (@thejimsmith) August 5, 2012

@EddieRobson I translated it as "It's PC gone mad I can't call POTUS a monkey". The sort of comment I'd expect from a chum of Boris.

Sigh. Racist leftists see everything as color. They are the ones who notice only color. Even typos are now race-related.

Others who choose bitterness over good-natured humor also weigh in.

So many hateful replies. Folks r idiots. RT @rupertmurdoch: Romney, Obama. Some species to compare, please. Courage and honesty needed.

Rupert Murdoch swiftly corrected his typo. One problem: That blasted Autocorrect struck again!

Story about spelling! Tweet 30. Mins ago should read #"Romney , Obama some specifics to compare, please. Courage and honesty needed" .

Oh, Rupert! Let’s see if “story” will also turn out to be racist somehow!
