A day after a long-expected attempt to separate his son James from a still-growing scandal, Reuters is reporting that Rupert Murdoch has some more explaining to do. The Leveson Inquiry’s investigation of media abuses, including phone hacking and bribery, centers around Murdoch’s British newspapers, and he’s likely to be summoned to the judicial panel this spring. “[Lord Justice Leveson] has always said he will go where the evidence leads,” said the justice’s spokesperson, and for now, that’s still looking like News Corp. Another editor at Murdoch’s Sun was arrested today, becoming the tenth person from the tabloid detained and questioned in the probe.
