The tables turned on Rupert Murdoch yesterday in London during the second day of inquiry into the phone hacking scandal that violated the privacy of heads of state as well as celebrities.  Murdoch, whose media outlets are infamous for intruding into the personal lives of others, was “mobbed by reporters” while crossing the street, according to Reuters.

When asked about the incident later by the inquiry’s head counsel, Reuters reports that Murdoch replied, “I think it’s part of the game…Harass people.  You know I was being harassed.”
