British Phone Hacking Hearing, Murdoch Hit With Pie - VIDEO

LONDON (AP) -- The hearing into the phone hacking scandal has
resumed after a protester tried to attack Rupert Murdoch with what
appeared to be white foam in a foil pie dish.

After a brief recess, the testimony of James and Rupert Murdoch
resumed in a courtroom freshly cleared of the public and
journalists.

Murdoch senior had removed his jacket -- presumably because it
had been spattered.

A man in a plaid shirt ran toward Rupert Murdoch before being
struck by his wife, Wendi Deng. He was detained by police.

The attack set off a scuffle and causted a shocking interruption
of a hearing into the phone hacking scandal that's rocked the media
baron's global empire.

    Looks to me like the only one with pie/cream on his face, is the guy in handcuffs. Am I missing something?

      What the Heck does Obama have to do with this, you ignorant hack? Tell me something; is it true that the Tea Bats have a whole building rented out to retired Bats, where they can all get together on their Medicare funded scooters and spend all day posting about Republican/TeaBat talking points and the horrors of Obama/liberals/Democrats/and/or scientists? It would explain why those things are brought up in every news story in the country, no matter how unrelated politics are to the subject at hand. For example, an article about alligators in a Tallahassee backyard will quickly show a comment about how Obama wants to raise taxes to give to PETA to feed the alligator. Or an article about a kid growing a record sized watermelon will spur comments about how Democrats probably want to tax the watermelon and liberals will try to "redistribute" the watermelon. Really. That's the level you people are on. I think that it's backfiring though, and people are tiring of the endless stupidity. Please do try to stay on topic on this and other unpolitical stories. Save your so-called "thoughts" for the political stories. Jeez.

    Even though the policemen (bobbies?) had to arrest the pie-thrower, I bet they gave him some conspiratorial winks and nods.
