Rupert Murdoch has met with some of the 24 journalists at his London tabloid The Sun who were arrested — and released on bail — following allegations that they bribed police and other public officials for news stories, the rival Guardian newspaper reported today (Thursday), citing unnamed insiders. According to the newspaper, Murdoch, the chairman and CEO of News Corp, met with the journalists at the headquarters of News International, the News Corp subsidiary that oversees Murdoch’s London newspapers, in the Wapping district of London. He reportedly gave them assurances that their careers and futures within the company are not in jeopardy as a result of the allegations against them. Two of the arrested journalists are due in court on Friday, defense editor Virginia Wheeler and chief reporter John Kay.
