Rupert Murdoch Heckled

Rupert Murdoch, chairman and CEO of News Corp., found himself the target of hecklers — some dressed as “Sesame Street” characters — during a speech he gave Friday in San Francisco, the Associated Press reports.

According to KGO-TV, Murdoch was only minutes into his speech about technology in education when a man interrupted him.

“Resist corporate domination of public education!” the man cried out, according to KGO-TV. “Resist it, folks! Isn’t it time to stand up?!”

Another protester, who AP reports was dressed as the count from “Sesame Street” and identified as Joe Hill, yelled, “Corporations own all the media in the world. Why should they not own all the education as well?”
