The pie throwing moron who went after Rupert Murdoch inside the House of Commons earlier this month just ot served a big, tasty slice of justice -- after a U.K. court found him guilty of assault.

The attacker -- a self-described "comic" named Jonathan May-Bowles -- pled guilty in a Westminster courtroom ... and is scheduled to be sentenced on August 2.

Good! You don't go attacking an 80-yr-old man. This dude needs serious psychological help but instead he will probably get a movie deal and reality show because that is the kind of idiotic world we live in.

Firstly, this guy should get a medal. He is the only one who has managed to mete out some justice to Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch will not be convicted of anything by the British or American authorities, despite overwhelming evidence of his guilt. Who know? Maybe our genius congress will give him the Congressional Medal of Honor? Only the pie guy gave Murdoch some justice.

Secondly, why does TMZ persist in writing stories that make Murdoch look like the victim in the scandal he himself caused? There is such lurid sexy nastiness in this scandal --- why aren´t they investigating that ? Could it have something to do with what network TMZ airs its show on? Hmmmmm...

Wonder how the families of all those dead people who got their phones hacked feel about this.

It's not up to this idiot to decide who is guilty of anything and to "mete out some justice". Like it or not this is generally handled by the courts. They aren't perfect but they're better than letting people decide on their own what is right and what should be done. I hope Casey Anthony gets run over by a bus and dragged a long way before a long painful death but I'd hate for people to feel they are justified in hurting her in any way, even with a pie.
Throw the book at this "comic" and make an example of him, that would be funny.

Why won't TMZ report the truth about this Murdoch scandal?

TMZ is towing the "NewsCorp" line and it's sickening!

So Warner Bros. is cool and lets you do your thing but Murdoch won't let an affiliate "news" organization (TMZ) report the truth about a huge scandal?!


TMZ - stop posting these favorable stories about this horrible scandal!

TMZ lost some credibility in my eyes with this story. Next thing you know TMZ will put up a story about all the charity work Rupert has done.

Maybe TMZ should stick to stories about transsexual bodybuilders instead of serious stuff. Seems like they can't keep their journalistic objectivity with real issues in the world.

Watching MSNBC right now. Talked about the Rupert scandal and how a mother also got her phone hacked. Her 8 y.o. daughter was killed by a pedophile.
