(Newser) – Rebekah Brooks resigned as chief executive of News International amid the phone hacking scandal, but apparently that doesn't really mean anything. A source tells the Telegraph Brooks is still on the company payroll, although Brooks herself won't comment. “My understanding is that Rupert [Murdoch] has told her to travel the world on him for a year and then he will find a job for her when the scandal has died down,” says the source.
