Murdoch snr is hit

His daughter, um, I mean wife retaliated at the attacker with what appears to be a flying clothesline.

More news to follow.

Not quite the flying clothesline that I believed and hoped took place, but an impressive jump and slap nonetheless.

Tossing a foam pie at someone is an "attack"?

Not quite a chainsaw attack bloodbath. Nonetheless it was an attack, or a thwarted attack.

Who knows what might have occurred had the attack not been thwarted. Polo mints shoved up the 80 year old's nose. Anything.

Heh, this reminds me of that shoe trowing incident a while back. I can't recall where it happened, i want to say Israel but not sure, but there was some sort of announcement or court appearence and someone actually threw a shoe at one of the 2 guys on the podium!

I'm just waiting for the well planned water ballon attacks to strat happening, those should be good

Damn shame that Murdoch didn't have a heart attack from the incident... and then in grief his son commits suicide.... which then sends ripples of suicides through the entire News Corp empire that brings it down.

But of course, haven't you seen him in the NOTW thread saying that a) they shouldn't be punished because everyone else on Fleet Street is probably doing the same crimes and b) there's no proof Brooks, Coulson or the Murdochs physically hacked into the phones themselves so they shouldn't be charged.

There's no way for anyone to look good in this scenario. If you say they did it they're evil scumbags. If you say they didn't do it, then they were unaware of 4000+ people being hacked and are so incompetent that they don't deserve to have a job.

I'm all for fucking around with people who deserve it but when FOX is trying to paint this as NOTW being victims of hacking and acting like they're being wronged you don't start hacking News Corp sites or throwing a plate in an 80 year old man's face while he's co-operating.

But more to the point. It's a waste of a perfectly good foam pie

Thanks, foam throwing 'anarchist,' for taking a good chance at putting a dent in Murdoch's empire and destroying it with a childish act.
