Rupert Murdoch

Accosted by Protester

at Parliament

7/19/2011 9:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

80-year-old Rupert Murdoch was nearly PIED IN THE FACE during his hearing at Parliament today -- but the assailant actually got nailed, thanks to Mr. Murdoch's wife.

Rupert Murdoch Attacked
Look closely at the video (below) ... you see the assailant on the left of the screen. He then prepares to hurl the pie  -- which appears to be some sort of white foam in a foil pie dish. Murdoch's wife, Wendi Deng (pink jacket) ... hurls her body toward the man to block the attack.

Thank you for posting TMZ! I was watching the live stream on CNN.com and it suddenly stopped. Then I get the breaking news alert about the pie. I return to CNN to see said incident and all I see is a still photo. Who comes up with the goods of the actual video? Good old' TMZ! I don't care what anyone says, you guys are the best!

Nice security, the man's 100 lb wife had to take the guy down.

All this over a couple rogue reporters 7 years ago simply 'walk' into the wide open 'voicemail doors' of people who simply neglected to change the default codes of their 'smartphones'. The more people who get these things the more stupid they become. And for those few rogues the left wishes to destroy a man and corporation that provides 60,000 jobs around the world, for the behavior of a couple idiots.

With that thinking, then you would think they would be calling for Obama to resign for the ATF Social justice department's Gunrunner and Fast & Furious scandal where thousands of Mexicans and Americans including border patrol have lost their lives!!

But no, they're worried about this because of their mentally deranged hatred for a freaking News Outlet. Meanwhile ABC and NBC pay jurors for interviews and they're asleep at the wheel on that lapsing of 'journalistic integrity' they all of a sudden care so much about. Talk about opportunistic leeches.

@ Ehécatl

TMZ has steadfastly refused to make any allusions to this scandal in the last two weeks (perhaps because its T.V. show airs on Murdoch´s Fox network?) Of course, the present story casts Murdoch as a victim, hence it can be seen as kind of positive publicity for this man.

==========================================
Well that explains allot of the one sided stories and minority bashing on this web site. LOL
