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.


The assailant -- real name Jonathan May-Bowles -- ended up getting the brunt of it.

I knew TMZ would catch up to Wendi. However, I was hoping the question asked was, did she ever play Volley Ball? Only because, she definitely spiked that pie and Jonathan big time.

I'm not much of a Murdock fan, but Wendi has definitly got his back...what a lady. Good job, Wendi. Your last name should be, Dang!!
