Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has reportedly suffered a serious back injury:

More from Vanity Fair:

Rupert Murdoch suffered a serious back injury while vacationing on his son Lachlan’s yacht in the Caribbean earlier this month, three sources familiar with the incident told Vanity Fair. The 86-year-old media mogul was helicoptered off the boat and was, until recently, recovering in a Los Angeles hospital, one of the sources said. The incident is said to have happened shortly after the New Year’s holiday.

Last Friday night, Murdoch sent an email to his senior management informing them of the accident: “I hope you all are having a great start to 2018. I suspect it has been better than mine,” he wrote, according to a source who’s seen the email. “I am writing to tell you that last week I had a sailing accident and suffered a painful back injury. While I am well on the road to recovery, I have to work from home for some weeks. In the meantime, you’ll be hearing from me by email, phone and text!”

We give CNN’s Brian Stelter a hard time around here, but at least he has the graciousness to put aside differences and wish Murdoch well:

Other tweeters were generous, too — with their hatred, that is:

It’s amazing progressives don’t all explode, what with all that compassion inside of them.
