Murdoch’s patience seems to have snapped about the time Romney’s “47 per cent” remarks were leaked.
Leading the charge was Peggy Noonan, the least dogmatic of Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal surrogates.
'It’s time to admit the Romney campaign is an incompetent one,' she declared.
So, what is Murdoch’s game? Is he abandoning Romney’s sinking ship or trying one last time to browbeat the floundering candidate into victory?
