Rebekah Brooks, Former News International Chief, To Receive $5.6 Million Payout
This is coming off a flurry of News Corp scandal events this week. Yesterday, Rupert Murdoch met with the family of murdered girl and phone-hacking victim Milly Dowler and apologized for NOTW's actions. Yesterday also, News Corp released a printed apology in a number of British newspapers. We now know that the phone hacking extended to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and may have even included 9/11 victims. News Corp had to pull out of a $12 billion bid for BSkyB.
As the scandal continues to metastasize, it'll be interesting to see where it goes next. How will the most terrifying news conglomerate of all recover?
