Police Closing In - Murdoch Exec Rebekah Brooks Arrested

That was quick.   British police have arrested former News International CEO Rebekah Brooks.  Her arrest came just two days following her resignation.   Police say the 43-year old is being detained in connection with the phone hacking operation and payments made to corrupt cops.

Who's next?   Judging by his resignation from The Washington Post and Dow Jones, it could be the previous News International CEO, Les Hinton.

Bad news for Ol'Rupe Murdoch.   The more of his close lieutenants get swept up, the greater the chance one of them will tell investigators everything and, at this point, the chase keeps heading ever upward.,
