Murdoch reassures angry sun staffs

A former Sun reporter who used to cover Cameron and the Conservatives tells how Downing Street and other Downing Street officials were desperate to get him out after he revealed in his book he had been an informer – and that the government had given in to those efforts by demanding that he quit.
