It's hard to imagine this never happened in the US as well with News Corp. Again, why are the Republicans and too many Democrats cooperating with an allegedly criminal organization? NY Times:
British authorities arrested eight people on Saturday, including five employees of Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid The Sun, as part of an investigation into bribery of public officials by journalists, Scotland Yard and the parent company of the newspaper said. The arrests were made on “suspicion of corruption” in conjunction with a search operation at the homes of those arrested and at the office complex that houses the newspaper, detectives said in a statement. The five Sun employees are between the ages of 45 and 68. None were named, in accordance with police policy. But the BBC and other British news media reported the arrested Sun employees as a deputy editor, Geoff Webster; the chief reporter, John Kay; the chief foreign correspondent, Nick Parker; a picture editor, John Edwards; and a reporter, John Sturgis.
