News Summary: Murdoch daughter reflects

REFLECTIONS: Rupert Murdoch's daughter Elisabeth says Britain's phone-hacking scandal has highlighted the need for a rigorous set of values in the media, while prompting some serious soul-searching at her father's company, News Corp.

THE SCANDAL: Allegations that the News of the World, a now-closed News Corp. tabloid, hacked people's phones for scoops mushroomed into a massive scandal over the past year.

OTHER DEVELOPMENTS: Earlier Thursday, British police said a 44-year-old man was arrested in an inquiry into allegations of computer hacking and privacy offenses.
