Tell Congress To Investigate News Corp.

Reported by Ellen - July 28, 2011 -

We've previously urged you to tell the Department of Justice to investigate News Corporation and that has been effective. Along with Free Press, we think there should also be Congressional hearings.

As I've previously posted, there are many reasons to be concerned that News Corp. hacking may have occurred in the United States. As a United States corporation, it's entirely appropriate, if not necessary, that Congress investigate whether or not the kind of illegal practices the conglomerate routinely engaged in overseas also happened here.

Free Press writes:

For too long, Murdoch has used his enormous media power to get what he wants from Washington and insulate himself and his company from official scrutiny. If he has broken the law, Murdoch needs to be held accountable.

Already, Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Frank Lautenberg have called for an investigation of News Corp. Take action right now to urge your members of Congress to join them and demand an investigation.

We couldn't agree more. Click here to contact your member of Congress.
