Grade wurde Rupert Murdoch während der Anhörung im britischen Parlament mit einem Rasierschaumkuchen angegriffen. Noch eine der netteren Arten, um Murdoch mitzuteilen, was man von ihm hält. Vom NYT-Blog The Ledge:
11:57 A.M. Hearing Suspended After Disturbance
The parliamentary committee's hearing has been suspended after a disturbance of some sort, which happened off camera. As Louise Mensch, a Conservative member of Parliament, began to ask her questions, it appeared that someone moved towards Rupert Murdoch and James Murdoch stood up, apparently to defend his father.
CNN reports that a witness who was in the parliamentary committee room said that the man who rushed at Rupert Murdoch hit the media baron with a pie plate filled with shaving cream.
[update] Von The Smoking Gun: Meet "Johnnie Marbles," The Brit Who Pied Rupert Murdoch In The Face
The man who pied Rupert Murdoch today during the media baron’s Parliament testimony is Jonathan May-Bowles, a comedian, of sorts, who uses the alias “Johnnie Marbles.”
Prior to attacking Murdoch, “Marbles”--pictured above--made Twitter posts suggesting that he was present in the London hearing room. He also reportedly called Murdoch a “greedy billionaire” as he hit the 80-year-old with a plate of what appeared to be shaving cream.
