Murdoch coming to London to face hacking crisis
Reports: Rupert Murdoch travels to UK to face hacking crisis before tabloid's last edition
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) ' British media reports say Rupert Murdoch is flying to London to address a burgeoning phone-hacking scandal that brought down the News of the World.

Soon-to-be out of work journalists on Saturday are readying the last edition of the tabloid, which will hit newsstands Sunday.

Murdoch is en route to take charge of the crisis that has rocked his media empire, according to multiple media reports, following allegations News of the World journalists paid police for information and hacked into the voicemails of young murder victims.

Those revelations sparked a firestorm of outrage and saw advertisers pull out en masse, prompting News International ' a subsidiary of Murdoch's News Corp. ' to announce the shutdown of the 168-year-old muckraking News of the World on Thursday.
