...AFTER THE CREAM PIE ATTACK.

Rupert Murdoch's wife Wendi Deng became an unlikely hero in defence of her octogenarian husband during his evidence to a British parliamentary inquiry on Tuesday. The 42-year-old third Ms Murdoch, who came from middle-class China to marry one of the world's most powerful media moguls, gave a dramatic "stand-by-your-man" display.

The Yale University business school graduate, yoga devotee and former News Corp employee reacted swiftly when the tense questioning by a British parliamentary panel was interrupted by a man throwing a shaving cream pie at her 80-year-old husband.

She sprang from her seat behind her husband to smack the assailant, in a scene witnessed by millions around the world watching television coverage of the latest developments in the News of the World telephone hacking scandal. In doing so, Ms Deng made the embattled News Corp chief look vulnerable, and herself strong. But the incident and her reaction also helped to take some of the heat off of Mr Murdoch who had looked tired, disconnected and irritable earlier in the hearing.

The incident may illustrate how she would fight to protect what is hers and how she may play a key role in the future of the media giant, once control is handed to the next generation of Murdochs, including her two young children.

- "That's our Wendi," said Vanity Fair writer Michael Wolff, author of a Murdoch biography.
- "She is great - incredibly full of energy, incredibly intelligent, living the life and just squeezing everything out of it.
- "She is incredibly ambitious."

The daughter of a factory director in Guangzhou, China, Ms Deng joined News Corp's Star TV as an intern in 1996, shortly after getting her MBA from Yale. She met Mr Murdoch in 1998 when she was a junior utive who acted as his interpreter during a business trip to China. The pair married in 1999 after Mr Murdoch divorced his wife of 31 years.

The couple have two children, Grace and Chloe. Mr Murdoch has four grown children, Prudence from his first marriage and Lachlan, James and Elisabeth from his second.

Ms Deng came to America in 1988 after working as interpreter for a Los Angeles couple - Jake and Joyce Cherry - who were working in China. When they returned to the United States, they sponsored her to live with them and to study. The couple split and Ms Deng had a brief marriage to Jake Cherry. Later she went to Yale and landed a job at Star TV in Hong Kong.

- "Wendi Murdoch may be even smarter than Rupert Murdoch," said New York Daily News gossip columnist Joanna Molloy.
- "She is no dummy. She is a consigliore to him, she has a self interest. She is very protective of him and very involved."

Ms Deng is also credited as producer of the just-released movie Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, a story set in 19th century China about the tough cultural norms imposed on women.

UPDATE 5/8-2011: Raklödderattacken gav fängelse.
Raklödderattack gav fängelse
Rupert Murdoch ville inte ta upp ärendet, men rättssystemet ville något annnaty. Och nu får mannen bakom raklödderattacken tillbringa tre månader i fängelse. Komikern Jonathan May-Bowles, som även går under artistnamnet Jonnie Marbles, var den som stod bakom attacken.
Han dömdes idag, onsdag, till tre veckors fängelse samt 265 pund i böterHan greps kort efter attacken. Hans advokat menar att pajkastning och liknande former av detta har använts för att protestera ända sedan tidigt 1900-tal, men det argumentet hjälpte föga.

OPEN QUESTION: NÅ (FRIMURARE &) STATSMINISTER FREDRIK REINFELDT & CO.
NÄR SKA VÅR INBLANDADE REGERING FÅ ÄNDAN UR VAGNEN OCH REDA UT DE - DITO - SVENSKA MEDIERNAS KRIMINELLA GRÄVANDE INOM GRUNDÄRENDET?
SVENSKA MEDIER SOM POLISANMÄLTS ETT FLERTALET GÅNGER, REDAN FÖR SINA UPPREPADE AVSLÖJADE BROTT & OLAGLIGA REPRESSALIER.

INOM LITTORINS PÅSTÅDDA SEX-HÄRVA, ÄR DET DESSUTOM RÄTT SÅ UPPENBART ATT AFTONBLADET - PÅ ETT ELLER ANNAT SÄTT - HAR KOMMIT ÅT HANS PRIVATA SEXCHATTANDE SAMT ADRESSBOKEN M.M. PÅ OLAGLIGT SÄTT... VARFÖR DENNA FORTSATTA KORRUPTA TYSTNAD + CENSUR + MÖRKLÄGGNING? Qui bono? Hållhakar någon?

Läs om hur även den svenska polisen och övriga myndigheter såsom dåvarande jävige handläggaren JO Mats MELIN - vars partiska journalist fru satt sig i knät på polisanmälda DN - tillät att TeliaSoneras kontaktade koncernledning, mörklade utkrävda bevis från sin Internutredning, då målsägande/kärande återigen råkade ut för dataintrång och förövarna tilläts sopa bort hennes insamlade bevis i sin dator, med flera då anmälda brott & olagliga repressalier, utan att detta beivrades av den vänskapskorrupta polisen inom den dito svenska unkna ankdammen. Då dessa anmälda brott - dessutom - sanktionerades att upprepas samt - än värre - tilläts ske mitt under en då pågående skadeståndsprocess år 2009, är förövarnas upprepade brott även att anses som ett synnerligen GROVT ÖVERGREPP I RÄTTSSAK. Att Thomas Bodström sedan krävde och lyckades få en utav de ansvarige polischeferna avskedade = Riks.krim.Chefen Therese Mattsson, hjälper dock inte målsägande tillika kärande, nämnvärt, när densamme - dessutom - nyligen ändock blivit befordrad till ny chef för Tullverket: Häpp?! Hållhakar någon? Cui bono...

Vidare att halvstatliga TeliaSoneras VD fortfarande TILLÅTS MÖRKLÄGGA FUNNA BEVIS, trots att den målsägande som krävde att de skulle göra sin egen INTERNUTREDNING (då IT-brottsroteln m.fl. är korrupt partiska), bevisligen dokumenterat begärt ut de funna bevisen på förövarna. VARFÖR TILLÅTS DENNA FORTSATTA MÖRKLÄGGNING? VARFÖR SVARAR VARE SIG THOMAS BODSTRÖM & S-O LITTORIN ELLER AFTONBLADETS MEDIEADVOKAT PETER AHLTIN, PÅ MÅLSÄGANDES ÖPPNA FRÅGOR?...utan avgår hellre, alternativt rymmer till storebror i USA, med svansen mellan benen samt sätter igång ett medvetet mediedrev mot både Kungen & Littorin: Kungen som bl.a. sitter i Utrikesnämnden samt är högste beskyddare för svenska Frimurareordern, samt utnämnt Calissendorff som sin hovauditor... Men, med rätta dock, har Aftonbladet krävt en korrektare historiebeskrivning då ett statsråd som Sven-Otto Littorin, "raderas bort", på bara några timmar från regeringens webbsida, (han med liksom "Kapten Klänning" tidigare, från sin respektive) efter sitt påtvingade avhopp, sannolikt p.g.a. mediedrevets "hållhakar" på en politiker, som Aftonbladets ledning, uppenbarligen hotade honom med att avslöja...

Rupert Murdoch i "romantisk affär"...

Mediemogulen Rupert Murdoch köper det romantiskt specialiserade bokförlaget Harlequin...som många naiva puckade 50-talister, and their likes, läste - och drömde sig bort med - i sin ljuva ungdom:-P

ÖMSESIDIG RESPEKT PÅ HÖG NIVÅ...
www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/sep/05/tony-blair-murdoch-family-fold?intcmp=239
Blair's wooing of Murdoch dates to 1995, when the leader of the opposition provoked a political row by accepting an invitation to address a News Corporation conference on Hayman Island, Australia, in July of that year. Labour under Neil Kinnock had previously been demonised in Murdoch's Sun, to the point where some believed the tabloid's opposition had cost the party the 1992 election.

When Blair opted to attend, he justified the decision to his spokesman, Alastair Campbell, that "not to go was to say carry on and do your worst, and we knew their worst was very bad indeed," according to his memoirs. "It seems obvious," he added in his book, A Journey. "The country's most powerful newspaper proprietor, whose publications have hitherto been rancorous in their opposition to the Labour party, invites us into the lion's den. You go, don't you?" Blair also noted that Paul Keating, then Australia PM, felt Murdoch was "a bastard, but one you could deal with".

The would-be PM's performance at the News Corp event was seen as a clear sign that Labour was becoming electable – and marked the beginning of a long, close friendship between the two men.

Labour benefited from the loyal support of Murdoch newspapers, with the Sun switching from Conservative to Labour in the run-up to the 1997 election, and the Times dropping the Conservatives in 1997 and endorsing Labour in 2001. Meanwhile, Labour placed few restrictions on the operation of either News Corp's newspapers or BSkyB, in which News Corp owned a 39.1% stake, during its time in office.

Support from the Murdoch titles intensified at the time of the Iraq war, and Murdoch and Blair were in close contact through Blair's premiership, speaking, for example, on the phone three times in the nine days before the Iraq war. Information released by No 10 under freedom of information rules also showed the pair spoke on the day the Hutton report into the death of Dr David Kelly was published.

By the end of his premiership, Blair wrote of Murdoch in his memoirs that he "came to have a grudging RESPECT AND EVEN A LIKING for him". He added: "He was hard, no doubt. He was rightwing. I did not share or like his attitudes on Europe, social policy or on issues like gay rights, but there were two points of connection: he was an outsider and he had balls."

How Tony Blair was taken into the Murdoch family fold
www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/sep/05/tony-blair-murdoch-family-fold?intcmp=239
Wendi Deng reveals link in a magazine interview where she describes the ex-PM as one of her husband's 'closest friends'

Although she has traditionally kept a low profile, Deng's interview comes after she catapulted herself into the public spotlight by leaping from a chair to lash out at a foam-pie thrower who attempted to target Murdoch during his questioning before the Commons culture, media and sport committee in July.

It was a relationship that began in political controversy but progressed to a secret family union: Tony Blair, it was revealed , is godfather to Rupert Murdoch's nine-year-old daughter, Grace, the second youngest of his six children.

In a culmination of 15 years of political intimacy, the former Labour prime minister was present at the star-studded baptism of the child on the banks of the Jordan, at the spot where Jesus is said to have undergone the same ceremony, according to an article in Vogue magazine.

With the Murdochs and their children dressed in white – and present at the invitation of Queen Rania of Jordan – the event was photographed in Hello! magazine, complete with an ethereal front cover image of a smiling Murdoch in an open-necked shirt.

But no mention was made of Blair's participation, which was revealed only in a rare interview by Murdoch's wife, Wendi Deng, in a forthcoming edition of Vogue.

Although she has traditionally kept a low profile, Deng's interview comes after she catapulted herself into the public spotlight by leaping from a chair to lash out at a foam-pie thrower who attempted to target Murdoch during his questioning before the Commons culture, media and sport committee in July.

In the Vogue article the former Labour leader, is described as "one of Murdoch's closest friends".

Murdoch's company, News Corporation, confirmed the longstanding link between the two men, although it is not known when Murdoch asked Blair to act as a godparent and how far this predated the actual baptism.

Grace was baptised a few weeks before Easter of 2010, and therefore shortly before the last general election.

When the Jordanian baptism was originally reported by Hello!, it noted that actors Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, both friends of the Murdochs, were godparents to Grace and her sister Chloe.

The involvement of Blair was admitted by Deng in the interview shortly before her husband flew to London to deal with the phone-hacking crisis in the wake of revelations that the News of the World had targeted the mobile phone of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler.

Deng, who said she was not sleeping because of the stress of dealing with the phone-hacking affair, added in the interview: "Of course, as Rupert's wife, I think it's unfair on him to be going through this. I worry about him being alone. He has no PR people advising him. He tells me not to come but I'm flying to London for the hearing. I want to be with him."

In July it was reported that Blair rang Gordon Brown to ask him to tell his friend and ally, the Labour MP Tom Watson, to lay off attacking News Corporation over the phone-hacking issue. Brown is thought to have refused the request, although neither Blair nor Brown has confirmed such a conversation took place.

A spokesman for Blair last night declined to comment on the godfather link.
