"BREAKING: Rep. Earl Blumenauer calls for ‘immediate and complete’ U.S. investigation of News Corp."

Rep. Blumenauer (D-OR) writes: “I am deeply concerned that the breadth of the alleged crimes and the seeming indifference to illegal activities at News of the World may be indicative of a patter of corruption at News Corporation. The pace at which this wide-ranging scandal is unfolding suggests that we may have only scratched the surface of potential illegal practices at the company.” Read the whole letter HERE. Blumenauer is at least the eighth member of Congress who has called for a federal investigation of News Corp.
