Britain's Channel 4 News has posted the video, including slow-motion replays, of a man attacking News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch with a paper plate of shaving cream today during a hearing before a committee of Parliament into the invasions of privacy by some of Murdoch's newspapers in the U.K.

That's Murdoch's wife Wendi Deng who gets in a slap to the assailant's head.
