Testimony Temporarily Suspended After Rupert Murdoch Accosted

Parliament has temporarily suspended the testimony of Rupert and James Murdoch after a man appeared to attack the elder Murdoch with what Reuters describes as a plate with foam on it.

All three cable news channels cut away from the testimony immediately afterward. Fox News turned to a simulcast of Sky News. Richard Quest anchored on CNN and Thomas Roberts and Contessa Brewer on MSNBC, as all networks replayed the attack in slow motion and from different angles including showing Murdoch’s wife Wendi Deng (in pink jacket, below) coming to Murdoch’s defense, slapping the attacker.

Testimony resumed around 12:09pmET.
