More Than (Gum)Shoes Dropping in Murdoch Scandal

Since we last checked in, the Murdoch phone hacking and police bribery scandal has taken two more casualties: Sir John Stephenson, commissioner of the Metropolitan Police (Scotland Yard) and his assistant commissioner, John Yates, both of whom were considered very cozy with the Murdoch crew.

Oh, yes, and original News of the World whistleblower Sean Hoare was found dead today (the death is said to be "unexplained, but not thought to be suspicious"-- we're confident Scotland Yard is on the case...Arrgh!). Or, as the NY Times reports Murdoch saying, "Bury your mistakes."
