Home Celebrity Another Arrest in Hacking Scandal: Hollywood-Based UK Reporter

The UK Guardian reports that the first US arrest in the Murdoch hacking scandal has happened. James Desborough, who won awards in Britain for getting amazing scoops, has been charged by Scotland Yard. He’s the 13th person arrested in the News of the World scandal, but the first in the U.S. Desborough was rewarded for all his scoops by being made head of the L.A. office of the News of the World in 2009. He was arrested in London, presumably because Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World no longer exists. He was praised for getting information so good that even the subject’s family members didn’t know about. http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/aug/18/phone-hacking-news-of-the-world
