    Former News of the World editor arrested on charges of hacking and police bribery

    Former News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks was arrested Sunday in connection with British police investigations into phone hacking and police bribery, her spokesman told CNN.



    Police in the United Kingdom have identified almost 4,000 potential targets of phone hacking in documents recovered from a private investigator working for the paper.
    There were also allegations that News Corp. reporters may have bribed police officers.
    Murdoch's campaign of contrition started 12 days after the scandal first broke and barely a week after the News of the World, Britain's best-selling Sunday tabloid, was shut down by News International in the face of public outrage.
    Murdoch, his son, James, and Brooks are to appear before British politicians Tuesday to answer questions over the phone hacking scandal.
    Some of the claims Brooks faces relate to the News of the World's alleged hacking, while she was editor, into Dowler's mobile phone account. She has warned that her answers may be limited by ongoing police and judicial inquiries.

    I am now officially fed up with the constant coverage of this story here. It's the rest of the media taking great glee in the demise of a competitor. Because, as we all know, none of them have been guilty of shady operating practices!

    What the members of the media get away with here should be grounds for lawsuits based on stalking and harassment.
