The News Corp. phone hacking scandal spread to another publication today as police in the U.K. arrested a reporter for the Sun newspaper, the country’s largest circulation daily, on charges of bribing police officers. This latest development is a major blow to News Corp., which has maintained that illegal activity was restricted to the now-defunct News of the World. Meanwhile, police announced today that they believe almost 5,800 people were targeted in the company’s phone hacking operations — 2,000 more than originally thought.
