U.S. prosecutors have sent News Corp. a letter seeking information about possible payments made by its U.K. tabloid newspapers to British policemen, according to people familiar with the matter.
The letter of request, sent last week, is part of a Justice Department investigation, these people said, into whether the company violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a U.S. law that prohibits companies from bribing foreign officials.
The fact the Justice Department chose to issue a "letter of request" rather than a criminal subpoena suggests the department has opted for a less confrontational approach to the matter, legal experts say.

Looks like they are going after Fox News. I knew they would.
There will be one, repeat, one source of news in the USA.
If News Corp was run by blacks, the Department of Injustice wouldn’t be interested in them.
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA) (15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd-1, et seq.) is a United States federal law known primarily for two of its main provisions, one that addresses accounting transparency requirements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and another concerning bribery of foreign officials.
Why didn’t we go after Bill & Hillary Clinton then?! Or Buttcrack Obama?
First they get Gibson for foreign wood, now they are after News Corp. for foreign bribes.
Justice is coming up with off the wall charges.
They are running a vendetta for some reason.
Obama is using Justice as his personal Hit man.
Here comes Holder leading the justice department as they bayonet the wounded....
Absolutely NOTHING on the Black Panthers intimidation of white voters in 2008. NOTHING on Fast and Furious. NOTHING on Solyndra. But News Corp.... That’s what they are really after. They want to silence ALL dissent. This is Hitler’s Gestapo in full array!
When will the camps be finished like the ones in NK?
It is going to be interesting to watch a President with a 30% approval rating try to take down America`s most popular news channel.
These are the actions of a fascist government.
Sounds like Obama doesn’t like the heat coming out of Fast n Furious, Solyndra, etc. and wants to shut some mouths.
Dream come true for the libtards. They’ve been trying to bury Foxnews for years. I hope Fox wasn’t stupid enough to give them an easy win.
The 1940’s German Jack Booted Thugs are pip-squeeks compared to the Obama/Holder DOJ! I truly fear for our nation and Constitution.
Holder doing his part to hide the criminal org known as the Obama Administration.
Well Beck sure got out at the right time.
“The fact the Justice Department chose to issue a “letter of request” rather than a criminal subpoena suggests...” to me the DOJ doesn’t have anything solid with which to issue a subpoena.
I think it’s a fishing expedition.
Leftists always want to outlaw opposition speech it seems.
