The deputy editor and four top journalist in The Sun have been arrested for bribing the police in London.

Ruperts Murdoc's media empire is desceased with immorality and corruption.

Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper was fighting to contain the damage after five employees at The Sun tabloid were arrested Saturday in an inquiry into the alleged payment of bribes to police and other officials.

The Sun’s deputy editor Geoff Webster, picture editor John Edwards, chief reporter John Kay, chief foreign correspondent Nick Parker and reporter John Sturgis were those arrested, News International CEO Tom Mockridge said in a message emailed to staff.

An idol has fallen.

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., which owns the newspaper, said police had searched their homes and the group’s London offices, potentially deepening the scandal over British tabloid wrongdoing.

Executives moved quickly to reject claims that Murdoch could decide to close down the newspaper.

In July, he shuttered the 168-year-old News of The World tabloid amid public outrage when the extent of its phone hacking of celebrities, public figures and crime victims was exposed.


My comment:

The moral degeneration in media and the police force seems to be absolute.  Moral and ethics have been replaced by the pagan hedonistic demand for cash and luxury.

Rupert Murdoc has no moral scruples at all.

The media mogul has turned News Corps into a public gutter. Journalism has been replaced by infotainment.

Few if any reporters search for and abide in the truth. The only thing that counts, is profit. Profit at any cost.

 Luke 16:13
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Jesus the Messiah said that love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.  The last scandal in The Sun is yet another example.
