Murdoch Attacked at Hearing
Yahoo News – A protester – whom friends identified as Comedian Jonnie Marbles – splattered Rupert Murdoch with white foam on Tuesday, interrupting a dramatic hearing in which the media baron told British lawmakers he was not responsible for a phone hacking scandal that has rocked his global empire.
Mr Murdoch’s wife Wendi Deng and his son James immediately jumped to his defense.
The Murdochs refused to take personal blame for the crisis that has swept from a tabloid newspaper through the top levels of Britain’s police and even to the prime minister’s office. Murdoch said he was not responsible for the hacking scandal, and denied his company was guilty of wilful blindness over hacking.
