Media mogul billionaire Rupert Murdoch waded into controversy Thursday over a tweet about the president of the United States, questioning whether Barack Obama is a "real black president."

"Ben and Candy Carson terrific," Murdoch wrote. "What about a real black President who can properly address the racial divide? And much else."

Murdoch's tweet was in support of Dr. Ben Carson, Republican presidential candidate and the only African-American in the race.
