Rupert Murdoch Attacked at Hearing
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch was attacked by a comedian wielding a shaving-cream pie on Tuesday as he testified before a parliamentary select committee in Britain. Murdoch was testifying regarding the phone hacking scandal at News of the World, a paper he owned.
News of the World was recently found to have hacked into hundreds of people's phones, including the phones of victims of violent crime or war and their families.
