22. Perhaps he was channeling Rumsfeld?
There are known knowns; there are things we know we know.
We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns the ones we don't know we don't know.

They admittedly don't know anything, ever. In every case they succeed only by breaking the rules.

47. guardian: Someone has just tried to attack Rupert Murdoch.
Edited on Tue Jul-19-11 11:01 AM by cal04
Someone has just tried to attack Rupert Murdoch. His wife Wendi seemed to slap the person.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/blog/2011/jul/19/phone-...

4.58pm: The BBC's Laura Kuenssberg thinks it's a bandage on the young man's face Nick Robinson says it is shaving foam and the young man hit Rupert Murdoch with it.

4.57pm: The suspect looks like he has a substance like white paint on his face.

My colleague Jackie Ashley tells Twitter: "Wendi can throw quite a punch."

4.56pm: The BBC says the young man has been handcuffed. Sky showed the footage again it seemed to be an attack from Rupert Murdoch's left.

4.55pm: A young man in a checked shirt has been detained by police.

4.54pm: Someone has just tried to attack Rupert Murdoch. His wife Wendi seemed to slap the person.

That was just as the dead lady next to Uncle Festus had starting asking questions.

1656:

Rupert Murdoch's wife Wendi stood up and appeared to strike somebody in defence of her husband.
1655:

Rupert Murdoch appears to have been attacked by somebody in the public gallery.

Times are British Summer Time.

Yes his wife did leap to his defense. So much for fucking security over here. :(

Rupert Murdoch looks to have white paint on him. Turns out its foam.

77. He's against circumcision?
According to the Guardian:

Jonnie Marbles has tweeted that he is the man responsible.

He is a UK Uncut activist.

85. Nope
"UK Uncut" is a group protesting the budget cuts in the name of austerity (and also protesting tax avoidance by corporations and the wealthy).

119. Circumcision is very uncommon in Britain
it isn't a routine procedure; apart from Jews and Muslims who circumcise for religious reasons, it's only really common among the upper social classes (in part because the NHS doesn't perform circumcisions except for medical necessity).

89. Wow! She is really trying to give him coverage in the form of a "question"!
Isn't it true that your employees were no worse than those of other papers and that you couldn't possibly have known about that?

What a joke!

93. James Murdoch suggesting that the whole operation is ethical and
adheres to the highest journalistic standards sure makes for good comedy.

Why not?

"People let me down and it is up to them to pay. I am the best person to clean this up."

Pie facing him to disrupt Mensch's harsh questioning. She had some hard questions that got squelched by the circus.

If you believe that security isn't capable of handling that, you are a fool. They paid someone to get through security and do it.
