Bestselling Learn Guitar on Android! http://bit.ly/LearnGuitarAndroid Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch was accosted on Tuesday July 19 as he testified before a U.K. parliamentary committee in London. A male civilian threw a plate filled with white foam or cream towards Murdoch, but his efforts were dashed by Murdoch's wife and son who intercepted the attack. The man told Murdoch, "You're a greedy billionaire." Police removed the man from the room and are not considering the incident as a serious offense. The 80-year-old Australian owner of News of the World — which shut down amid a major hacking controversy — was not harmed in the incident. Murdoch is in Parliament testifying about his knowledge of the hacking scandal that has tarnished his empire. http://www.tmz.com/2011/07/19/rupert-murdoch-james-murdoch-scandal-news-of-the-world-phone-hacking-testimony-parliament-attack-pie-protester/ http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2011/07/rupert-murdoch-hit-face-with-shaving-cream-during-parliament-hearing http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/2011/07/19/2011-07-19_murdoch_scandal_hearings_as_tv_drama_ruperts_pie_in_the_face_responses_keep_thin.html?r=entertainment http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/entertainmentnewsbuzz/2011/07/murdochs-struggle-to-defend-themselves-before-parliament.html
