The News Corp. phone hacking scandal is catching more fire stateside: As the Justice Department reportedly prepares subpoenas, a video from MoveOn.org compares News Corp. to a crime syndicate.
The ad from the liberal public advocacy group, which is also a political action committee, urges voters to petition Congress for deeper inquiries into News Corp.
"Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, allegedly…. tapping the phones of murder victims? Bribing government officials? And now, allegedly tapping the phones of 9/11 victims and their families? Rupert Murdoch controls and influences a huge amount of all American media but is he running a company… or a crime syndicate? Enough is enough. Call Congress and demand a full investigation into Rupert Murdoch's News Corp."
News Corp. has said it has seen no evidence of 9/11 victim's phones being hacked.
