The net is closing around media mogul Rupert Murdoch. Investigators in London report that senior News Corp. employees authorized hundreds of bribes to police officers and other government officials.1 And on Wednesday his disgraced son James stepped down from his role as executive chairman of News International.

But these reports of rampant criminal behavior have yet to trigger a prosecution of Murdoch here in the U.S., where executives can be held liable for systematically bribing foreign officials.2

Don’t let Murdoch dodge justice.

Demand a full U.S. investigation of News Corp.

Murdoch’s henchmen are now trying to defang the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which makes it unlawful for a U.S. corporation to pay off a foreign official for the purpose of advancing or protecting a business interest.3 Their goal? Stopping U.S. prosecutors from reining in the culture of corruption that has overtaken News Corp.

News Corp. has also sought to mute coverage of the phone-hacking and bribery scandals across its news empire.

This is how Murdoch works. For years he’s wielded his enormous media power to build his empire, fight the public interest and place himself and his fellow News Corp. executives above the law.
