    Default Rebekah Brooks arrested

    Rebekah Brooks recent former CEO of News International has just been arrested (by appointment - ie. voluntarily).

    I am no fan of reporters or the media they serve. I believe they are all cut out of the same cloth. However, this isn't a slam reporters thread.


    I've just looked up Rebekah Brooks career and must say she has a very impressive cv. She joined News of the world in 1989 as a secretary (at the age of 20). And she subsequently become the youngest editor of a British Newspaper (at the age of 31)!

    I certainly admire her given her success both as a woman (and I'm not being sexist here) and as an individual who never went to college. I'm not condoning whatever she's allegedlly accused of knowing about the whole phone hacking scandal.


    But it just goes to show, that no matter how successful you are - you are always just one step away from complete disaster! Somewhat sobering.

    Very possibly Doc. The media have been baying for blood. Ironically its the rival media companies to News International. She may be falling on her own sword to try to save the company and jobs of others. But I suspect we will never know the real truth!

    I wouldnt say now its a complete disaster seeing as her severance package is worth about 4 million.
    It includes a gagging order so i assume it her reward for keeping her mouth shut in public at least
