A video spoof of an (apparent) Rupert Murdoch impersonator offering a profane-laced tirade against staffers over an edition of The Wall Street Journal is fast becoming a YouTube.com favorite.

Sought by e-mail for comment, News Corp. Spokesperson Teri Everett responded: “It’s an obvious fake.,” then later added, “That’s it. We don’t have any other comment.”

The shaky camera adds to the reality of the segment while also preventing watchers from clearly being able to tell that the elderly actor is not Murdoch.
