Tell Congress: Investigate News Corporation!

Dear Friend,

Family members of 9/11 victims just called for an investigation into allegations that FOX News owner Rupert Murdoch's newspaper News of the World sought to hack into voicemail boxes of 9/11 victims.

Murdoch has already been forced to shut down the British paper since it has been revealed that its reporters hacked into the voicemail of politicians, celebrities, British soldiers and even a missing girl who was later found murdered.

But now this scandal has expanded to the US, on reports earlier this week that a former New York City police officer claims he was offered money by News of the World journalists to retrieve phone records of 9/11 victims and their families.

This is an opportunity to hold the owner of FOX News accountable before the American people for the detestable practices he promotes as journalism. Murdoch's News Corporation is a US company that operates FOX News, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post. And if any News Corporation outlets were spying on Americans, we deserve to know.

I just signed a petition asking Congress to investigate News Corporation. I hope you'll sign too. You can sign and learn more at the link below:
