CREW: Federal Communications Commission: Regarding Influence Over FCC Regulation of News Corp.

On July 15, 2011, CREW sent a Freedom of Information Act request to the Federal Communications Commission seeking documents that would shed light on the extent to which members of Congress and others acting on behalf of Rupert Murdoch or News Corp. have attempted to influence the FCC’s regulation of Mr. Murdoch’s media entities. CREW seeks this information in light of the latest revelations of possible efforts to hack into the voice mail messages of 911 victims by media companies owned by Mr. Murdoch, activities that appear to fall within the jurisdiction of the FCC, among others.
