Bi-partisan calls for News Corp investigation in US

Yesterday it was Senator Rockefeller as well as Bush’s former SEC chairman calling for an investigation. Now the list includes NJ Democrat Senator Menendez and GOP Congressman King calling for a US investigation of News Corp. The Democrats would be wise to get in front of this issue.

New York Republican Pete King is calling on the FBI to investigate whether Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation hacked into the voicemail accounts of Sept. 11 victims, calling the allegations of the scandal “disgraceful.”

“As I see it, I would expect more things to be coming out over the next several weeks,” King told POLITICO. “And as we approach 9/11, the tenth anniversary, it’s even going to get worse.”

King said in the letter, addressed to FBI Director Robert Mueller, that the journalists should face felony charges if the allegations are proven true.
