News Corp. Workers Pay Price for U.K. Checkbook Reporting

Journalists at Rupert Murdoch’s
best-selling Sun tabloid in Britain are paying for a culture of bribery
that may have been an industry standard until scrutiny from News Corp. (NWSA)’s phone-hacking scandal put an end to it.
as reporters at Murdoch’s competitors start to be arrested, the bribery
case will focus on News Corp. because its internal investigators are
scouring documents and turning over evidence to police, said Roy
Greenslade, a newspaper columnist and journalism professor at London’s City University.
