Even at 82, Rupert Murdoch never fails to surprise us. The media mogul is taking up a surprising new hobby: meditation.
He tweeted the news on Sunday, writing:
Trying to learn transcendental meditation.Everyone recommends, not that easy to get started, but said to improve everything!

Maybe the stress of News Corp.'s scandals finally got to him. News Corp. has been roiled by revelations that some of its newspapers hacked the phones of public figures, and bribed public officials for information. Murdoch has survived relatively unscathed, though there have been over 100 other arrests related to the charges.
Or maybe it's all the heat The New York Post got over its coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings that's putting him on edge. In any case, we'll consider his latest tweet about meditation another one of his gems, made possible only after he joined Twitter in 2011.
