Watch: Rupert Murdoch pie’d at hacking hearing

Pin it

Rupert Murdoch is having a rough time. First of all, journalists and Commies and other assorted muckrakers are slowly unraveling a network of influence that, judging by Murdoch's appearance, took centuries to amass. Now he's been dragged in front of Parliament to answer questions about the whole mess, and somebody tried to pie him. Oh, those English.  

My favorite part is when Murdoch's wife, Wendi, lunges up and clocks the pie-thrower, who has identified himself as U.K. comedian Johnnie Marbles. Say what you will about their relationship, but a wife whose first reaction at the sign of trouble is a haymaker is a keeper.
