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.

Marbles just passed out a little paper to security to look the other way for 2 seconds. Authorities like getting their palms greased over there, from what I hear.

So, anyone can just prance in and wreak havoc like that there? This could have had a tragic ending.

Whoever is in charge of the security team there needs to be fired.

Unbelievable !!

Kudos to Wendi? That Dragon Lady is schooled in the dark arts and there is no way she is gonna let any one near her sugar daddy!

So anyone can just prance in the main Parliament building in a sweet flannel shirt with a pie? You wouldn't see that in Washington...

I'm surprised that a guy with such a casual unkempt appearance could make his way into such a high-profile hearing with such apparent ease - and while carrying a conceiled object no less. Murdoch's mumbling must have lulled the room's entire security team to sleep.

Maybe some of you idiots who think that Rupert Murdoch's wife (who actually knocked over the woman next to Murdoch too) is a frea_king hero watched anything other than Fox News (his GOP programming that encourages wars, destruction, and misinformation channel), you'd know that this incident is minimal compared to what he really deserves!

LOL, Wendi was waiting patiently like a crouching tiger. What is up with all these Asian chicks marrying these creepy old white guys anyway. Murdoch and Wendi together look like a Thai hooker and her benefactor.

The real crime here is that the guy will most likely get more time in jail than Murdoch or his lackies.

Seriously, shoot the old bastard in the face, dont just try and embareass him.

Deng is a communist that lied her way into becoming a US citizen (so it makes sense Murdoch would dump his wife for her). Do a search about her in Google.
