Protesters from #OccupyWallStreet heckled News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch during a speech Friday



Rupert Murdoch heckled at Calif. education forum 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Protesters from the Occupy Wall Street movement heckled News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch during a speech at an education forum Friday, accusing the media mogul of trying to profit from public education.

 

Activists repeatedly interrupted Murdoch as he gave a keynote speech at a downtown San Francisco hotel about how technology could help transform the nation's public education system.

 

"Equality in education, not privatization!" one woman shouted as security guards escorted her out of the ballroom of the Palace Hotel, which hosted the National Summit on Education Reform.

 

"Corporations own all the media in the world. Why should they not own all the education as well?" activist Joe Hill yelled sarcastically. Hill, who was dressed as the "Count" character from the TV show "Sesame Street," also was pushed out of the meeting room.

 

Murdoch appeared unfazed.
