Jonnie Marbles, the 27-year-old British comedian who threw a foam pie at Rupert Murdoch last July during a hearing into the phone hacking scandal, tells The Guardian: “After I was sentenced, I was advised, ‘Don’t tell them who you are and what you’ve done’ but I’d just been on the news and as I arrived on E wing, the prisoners shouted, ‘Pieman!’ I thought, ‘This isn’t going to be easy’ but people patted me on the back and shook my hand.”

“I’m obsessed with Rupert’s tweets,” says CNN host and ex-Murdoch employee Piers Morgan. “My ultimate nightmare when I was an editor would’ve been Rupert on Twitter.” || Morgan on Keith Olbermann: “I love to wind him up. He’s just so easy to wind up, and that makes it delicious.”
