Senator Rockefeller (D-WV) Calls For ‘Appropriate Agencies’ To Probe News Corp’s Hacking Scandal In U.S.

This evening, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) expressed his concern that the “admitted phone hacking in London by the News Corp. may have extended to 9/11 victims or other Americans.” Rockefeller is the first senator to suggest that American authorities investigate the scandal. Although Rockefeller stopped short of calling for a congressional investigation, he did voice his support for “appropriate agencies” to look into the illicit tactics of Rupert Murdoch’s company.
