Protesters associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement heckled News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch during a speech at an education forum in San Francisco.
Murdoch was repeatedly interrupted Friday as he talked at a downtown hotel about technology’s role in improving the country’s public education system.
Protesters accused Murdoch of trying to profit from the public education system. About half a dozen people were escorted out of the hotel, but they said they were not arrested.
