  • On November 28, 2012, Senator John “Jay” Rockefeller IV, D-W.Va., Chair of the Senate Commerce Committee released a statement on the News Corp. hacking scandal, stating that, “I look forward to reading Lord Justice Leveson’s report on media practices in the United Kingdom. While I understand that the main goal of this report is to make policy recommendations, the core of the Inquiry remains the illegal and unethical practices of newspapers owned by the News Corporation. I remain deeply concerned that these companies may have violated U.S. laws and injured U.S. citizens. I hope that Lord Leveson’s new report and other ongoing investigations will continue to clear the air and hold the companies accountable for their deplorable conduct.” That press release is available here.
