Posted: 5/17/2012 | By: Andrew Feinberg | The Hill
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) pressed Federal Communications Commission
members to investigate alleged misconduct by News Corporation at an FCC
oversight hearing on Wednesday.
Lautenberg wants the commission
to investigate whether the illicit activities News Corporation
executives are accused of in the United Kingdom, including hacking into
subjects’ voicemails, bribing officials for information and obstructing
justice, might extend to the United States.
