Murdoch Pied at Hearing

Rupert and James Murdoch’s testimony before Parliament was halted Tuesday after a man in the audience assaulted Rupert with a foam pie. The man—he has not been officially identified, although an activist going by Jonnie Marbles has claimed responsibility on Twitter—calmly walked up the aisle and planted the pie in Murdoch’s face. Murdoch’s wife, Wendi, who was sitting behind him in the front row, then stood up and clocked the assailant. He has since been arrested.
