has  attempted to pie Murdoch providing front page and generating sympathy

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Phone-hacking: Murdochs and Rebekah Brooks face MPs - live | Politics | guardian.co.uk
5.31pm: The protest against Rupert Murdoch seems to have completely backfired, Paul Owen writes. It has transformed Murdoch into a sympathetic figure, an old man under attack from a young one, and may have contributed to the committee's decision to allow Murdoch to read his lengthy statement in full. He ended the session having the last word, able to express his contrition to the country. The headlines tonight and tomorrow may well be about the attack on Murdoch rather than the complex and detailed issues that were discussed in the session itself.

Not so much an idiot as a self serving low life looking for some self-glorification.

Good question. Plant or volunteer? I don't know anything about him. There are plenty of conservative comics. This guy was trivializing the whole proceedings in tweets. In one he confirmed that Murdoch WAS Mr. Burns, (From the Simpsons -- the evil owner of the nuclear plant.)
