This is incredibly, incredibly sad.
How many more lives is this mess going to ruin?
As everyone knows, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp media empire has been absolutely devastated since the phone-hacking scandal prompted more investigations into the immoral - and sometimes illegal - practices in which many staffers partook, which has led to News of the World being scrapped and the arrests of eleven current and former employees of The Sun on suspicion of bribery, and now, it appears that it has taken its toll mentally on at least two senior journalists, who have reportedly attempted suicide.
The pair have been hospitalized, and News International is apparently footing the bill for their recovery.
Our thoughts go out to them, their family, and loved ones during this terribly difficult time.
