Perhaps stressed by the Koch Brothers' reported interest in buying up major newspapers across the country, Rupert Murdoch has taken up a new hobby: transcendental meditation. Murdoch tweeted the news Sunday afternoon, admitting that he's had some difficulty mastering the practice.
Trying to learn transcendental meditation.Everyone recommends, not that easy to get started, but said to improve everything!

A bizarre hobby for Murdoch but, considering some of the interests he's previously discussed via Twitter – the "Jewish owned press" and the "fat lady who fell thru [the] street," etc. – meditation is perhaps an improvement. After all, it's worked, sort of, for at least two Russells (Brand and Simmons) as well as David Lynch. Maybe this is the beginning of a kinder, gentler Murdoch, one who's less likely to hire lying jerks and alleged pig-fucking racists. But I doubt it.
