Justice Department Won’t Pursue Charges Against Murdoch-Owned Media Companies

A Justice Department investigation into Rupert Murdoch-owned media companies won’t result in charges following allegations of voicemail hacking and payments to public officials in the U.K., the USA Today reports.

News Corp. and 21st Century Fox were under investigation after hacking the voicemail accounts of sources, celebrities and politicians. They also were accused of bribing public officials.

It’s unclear why the Justice Department dropped the case without charges.

“We are grateful that this matter has been concluded and acknowledge the fairness and professionalism of the Department of Justice throughout this investigation,” according to a statement released Monday by Gerson Zweifach, general counsel of News Corp and group general counsel and chief compliance officer of 21st Century Fox.
