Funny Moments From The Murdoch Parliamentary Inquiry

And none involve shaving cream ...

In this Q&A a persistent MP with a funny accent asks Murdoch why he was invited to enter No. 10 Downing Street, the Prime Minister's residence, by the back door on the many occasions he was invited for "a cup of tea." Never through the front door, like any normal person:

And here CNN becomes for a day the TV equivalent of a British scandal sheet when the alluring MP Louise Mensch used her Q&A time on the Murdoch inquiry parliamentary committee to accuse Piers Morgan, the British wingnut who replaced Larry King on CNN, of being a boastful hacker. Morgan had been News of The World editor from 1994 to 1995 and of the Daily Mirror from 1995 to 2004. The boorish Morgan sputtered that Ms. Mensch “show some balls” quite possibly because he has none himself. Doesn't feel so well when the shoe is on the other foot, eh Piers, you little weasel.
