Perhaps realizing that blaming NY State's woes on Governor Paterson's blindness wasn't a great idea, media mogul Rupert Murdoch apologized to Paterson. The Daily Politics reports, "Apparently, Paterson was willing to chalk Murdoch's bizarre comments up to a 'random misstatement,' according to this source, and did not try to negotiate more favorable coverage from the tab while he had the news mogul on the line. (Remember: This is the same newspaper that portrayed Paterson as Pinocchio in the wake of the Caroline Kennedy debacle)." Gawker is hopeful: "We look forward to more random misstatements in the near future."
