(Reuters) - James Murdoch will be given more
responsibility over News Corp's U.S. television
operations more than a year after he became a central figure in
the company's telephone hacking scandal in the UK, two sources
familiar with the matter said.
News of the promotion comes on the heels of a ruling earlier
on Thursday by a UK regulator that appears to have cleared
pay-TV company BSkyB of any connection to the scandal that
tainted News Corp last year.
