Arrests made following police raid at Murdoch's UK office

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The situation is sounding more and more serious for Rupert Murdoch following the police visit to the News Corp UK offices. Does anyone seriously think that the US offices of News Corp are untouched by this? We deserve an investigation over here as well to see exactly what this business is up to. The Guardian:

The role of the former Sun editor Rebekah Brooks is expected to come under fresh scrutiny after four of the paper's current and former journalists were arrested on Saturday in connection with an investigation into corrupt payments to police. Detectives with Operation Elveden, the Metropolitan Police's investigation into illegal payments to officers, raided the Sun's offices in Wapping, east London, morning after receiving information from News Corp, the parent company of News International, which owns the paper. A serving police officer in the Met's Territorial Policing command was also arrested at his place of work and questioned at a police station. In a statement, News Corp said: "Metropolitan Police Service officers from Operation Elveden arrested four current and former employees from the Sun newspaper. Searches have also taken place at the homes and offices of those arrested. News Corporation made a commitment last summer that unacceptable news gathering practices by individuals in the past would not be repeated."
