Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter over the weekend to offer his theory on the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370.
"World seems transfixed by 777 disappearance," Murdoch tweeted late Friday. "Maybe no crash but stolen, effectively hidden, perhaps in Northern Pakistan, like Bin Laden."

The News Corp. executive chairman didn't stop there.
777. Still think this a reminder that US and China should be working more closely on Muslim extremist threat.— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) March 15, 2014
It's not the first time Murdoch has weighed in on the Malaysian Air mystery. On Mar. 9, a day after the plane's disappearance, the 83-year-old media mogul tweeted this to his nearly half-million followers:
777crash confirms jihadists turning to make trouble for China. Chance for US to make common cause, befriend China while Russia bullies.— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) March 9, 2014
It's also not the first time Murdoch has used his Twitter feed to weigh in on topical issues. Last month, Murdoch tweeted his seeming denial of the existence of global warming. The reason? "Wild" winter weather.
Wild winter in US, UK, etc. no respectable evidence any of this man made climate change in spite of blindly ignorant politicians.— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) February 18, 2014
On Sunday, Malaysian police searched the homes of the pilots of the Boeing 777 a day after investigators concluded the plane's disappearance was not an accident.
