Guardian insta-pundit #2:

Perhaps Rupert Murdoch doesn't read the Guardian. Whatever his newspaper reading habits are, one thing is clear; the great old man of newspapers looked hopelessly out of touch in the early stages of the father-and-son grilling in front of MPs today.

There were the marathon pauses; the one-word answers; the look, again and again of mystification. He tried, several times, to defer to James, who clearly had plenty of answers at his fingertips. His hand beat the desk several times to emphasise the occasional long answer. But above all, Rupert Murdoch knew nothing about phone hacking – and he didn't look like he was acting either.

Rupert did one to make one point clear, though, making an ill-timed intervention at the beginning of the hearing, interrupting his son's flow. "This is the most humble day of my life," the patriarch interjected. We understood the message: show contrition – yet it was so artlessly done, it showed nothing of the sort.
