Murdoch papers played Parliament testimony prominently on front pages

Rupert Murdoch’s appearance before British Parliament Tuesday made the front pages of almost all major newspapers owned by the 80-year-old News Corp. head. The New York Post ignored the news, as did several of his Australian papers. Here is a sampling of how they treated it. (If you need a 5-minute guide to catch up on the latest, here it is; you can also follow us @notwfallout for news as it happens.)

The U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal treated the testimony prominently.
The Wall Street Journal Europe edition devoted most of its front page to the story.

The Times of London showed a photo of Murdoch with his wife, Wendi Deng Murdoch, who came to his defense during testimony when a comedian attempted to direct a shaving cream pie at the 80-year-old.
The Daily Telegraph (New South Wales) front page features a quote from Murdoch.
The Australian front page includes a photo of former News International leader Rebekah Brooks, who also testified Tuesday.
The New York Post front page had no news of its owner’s testimony before Parliament.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabPenny.com
