Another one bites the dust

James Desborough, a former reporter at the News of the World, has become the 13th person to be arrested by police looking into illegal practices at the now-defunct tabloid newspaper.

Mr Desborough, who has been living in Los Angeles as the tabloid’s US editor since 2009, joined the paper in 2005 as a showbusiness and news reporter. He is still technically employed by the paper and is on a 90-day consultation period.

This adds to the legal and regulatory threats facing Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, the US parent company and owner of the Fox television network, Fox News, and Dow Jones.

IMO: Not only that, Mr. Murdoch, but it seems Fox News are no good at physics and would not even reach the standard of an A level student. See "Fox Fails Physics" URL. And after all the shenanigans involving Standard & Poors, is the Dow Jones fit for purpose. Bearing in mind what the polis say about Murdoch and the crippling insults similar organisations like S & P are getting, I very much doubt it. What a mess we seem to find in News Corp.
