From The Daily Mail:
Rebekah Brooks is apparently still being paid by News International, it has emerged.
More than three weeks after she handed in her resignation on July 15 it has transpired that she has not yet fully left Rupert Murdoch's empire.
The former News of the World editor may have stood down as CEO of the company, but her resignation as director is still 'underway', a spokesman for the business said.
And questions put to Mr Murdoch's company and Mrs Brooks' representatives about whether the 43-year-old is still on the business's payroll have been met with a wall of silence.
A splash more from The Guardian:
Daily Telegraph diarist Tim Walker has gone one better than his revelation a couple of weeks ago about the voicemail instruction on Kelvin MacKenzie's mobile phone:
"I am not here right now, but leave a message and Rebekah will get back to you".
Today he reports that he is "reliably informed" that Rebekah Brooks, who resigned as chief executive of News International on 15 July, is still being paid by the company.
He quotes an informant as saying: "My understanding is that Rupert 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."
The most recent Companies House report about positions in Rupert Murdoch's News International Company shows that Mrs Brooks is still listed as the director!
This is exactly what an evil mogul with an evil henchperson would do to keep said henchperson quiet while also providing the illusion of cleaning up his media crime syndicate. Good luck with that, Mr. Murdoch.
