As reported last week, Rupert Murdoch‘s News International will admit liability in the phone hacking incidents in the U.K. It has now come to light that Murdoch’s News Corporation, may have sought to hack 9/11 victims’ phones in the U.S. Apparently, Murdoch’s News Corp., the U.S. arm of his media empire, which owns Fox News, is in crisis mode.
A law enforcement official says the FBI has opened an investigation into allegations that media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. sought to hack into the phones of Sept. 11 victims. The official spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.
According to the AP, this is a result of U.S. Rep. Peter King and several other members of Congress writing to FBI Director Robert Mueller, demanding an investigation.
