Following eleven arrests at Rupert Murdoch's British tabloid The Sun, and the release of a new Sunday edition, two senior journalists at the paper have reportedly tried to take their own lives, according to Reuters. Both are in the hospital, the Financial Times reports, with News International handling costs. Reuters says the British publishing unit "has increased the level of psychiatric help available to employees to help them cope," while sources say other Sun journalists appear "terribly stressed" with many "on the edge."
