Two Murdoch Reporters Attempted Suicide

Two senior Murdoch reporters apparently tried to commit suicide after 300 million emails and internal papers were turned over to investigators pursuing the phone-hacking scandal that rocked the company over the past year. The pair were checked into a hospital at the expense of News International, the British newspaper arm of Murdoch’s News Corp. Sources inside the company said journalists are “terribly stressed and many are on the edge,” and have been informed that the company will provide psychiatric help if needed.
