    UK police arrest Murdoch tabloid staff - World news - Europe

    Thirteen people have now been arrested over allegations that journalists paid police in return for information.

    Their detentions are part of Operation Elveden - one of three criminal investigations into news-gathering practices.

    Last week, News International settled a string of legal claims after it admitted that people working for the tabloid had hacked in to the private phones of celebrities and others to find stories.

    Of course, that can't happen here. Fox News sued and won the right to lie.

    Dan Rather should be in federal prison for trying to use forged documents to influence a presidential election. He was fired but no criminal charges were filed. It's that pesky Bill of Rights that keeps getting in the way of democrat policies. If lefties researched the issue they would find the shocking truth that the 1st Amendment in the US Constitution does not apply to foreign countries. The freedom of the press as we accept it in the US is not the same overseas.You can buy information and conceal informants in the US but ....gasp...the rules are different elsewhere.

    New Corp made citizens arrests or have they been granted police powers now?

    The OP is an idiot..... just in case anyone hadn't noticed.

    You do realize that those arrested included people who have never worked for News Corp, right? Or does that not fit with your partisan bullshit?

    Idiot.

    1/3 of them were news corp people.

    News corp didn't make the arrests

    We can forgive Deanster his mistakes as he is typing with just his left hand, and that is bound to cause mistakes.

    When it's all said and done, that entire criminal organization will be behind bars.

    And personally, I can't wait.

    How very liberal! Throw away due process and just throw people in jail for working for an organization that has been accused of nothing in the US.

    And you wonder why some of us see you as delusional?

    Idiot.

    Where in the post do you get due process should be thrown away? "When all is said and done" clearly implies a trial, and therefore due process. The author offers an opinon that those arrested are part of a criminal organization. The only thing idiotic is the way you treat others and how you choose to spin their words.
