News Corporation said on Sunday that it had no record of being notified by the Justice Department nearly three years ago of a subpoena for the telephone records of a reporter at its Fox News cable channel.
The companys chief legal counsel at the time also said that he had never seen material from the government related to the subpoena.
The Justice Department has signaled that it notified News Corporation on Aug. 27, 2010, that it had seized the phone records of a Fox News reporter who turned out to be the Washington correspondent James Rosen after one of his articles had included details of a secret United States report on North Korea.
While we dont take issue with the D.O.J.s account that they sent a notice to News Corp., we do not have a record of ever having received it, Nathaniel Brown, the spokesman, said.
Lawrence A. Jacobs, who was News Corporations chief legal officer until he left in June 2011, said he never saw a notification about the phone records.
I would have remembered getting a fax from the Justice Department, Mr. Jacobs said in an interview Sunday. These are not the kinds of things that happen every day.
He added, The first thing I wouldve done would be to call Roger Ailes.
News Corporation said it had conducted a thorough search of its legal records, including, Mr. Jacobs said, a scan of his e-mails and other relevant materials, and has found nothing related to the investigation. The inference that I sat on this and didnt share it with Roger couldnt be further from the truth, Mr. Jacobs said.

If you give them 6 months they'll come up with a certified pdf of it
“A version of this article appeared in print on May 27, 2013, on page B3 of the New York edition with the headline: News Corp. Says It Was Not Told of Subpoena for Reporters Phone Records.”
It was linked on the front page down low in the e-NYTimes, but is buried on B3 in the print edition...
Can’t the House just vote to have the SEALs arrest Eric Holder?
Why can’t they sue the Justice Department and Attorney Justice Holder personally for violating their rights?
Or better yet sue President Obama for not faithfully executing the US Constitution?
Hey, it says “the Justice Department signaled that (it had informed News Corp).” Maybe they used smoke signals and they just blew away.
Disgusting. The Times can’t even bring itself to say that Holder was lying about his lying.
The same could be true of Holder. An order to notify Fox, ordered with a "wink-wink", was never delivered.
Well, what news agency do you trust?
so the MSM got their talking point from the white house about FOX and are making it out that FOX knew all along and they were not targeted as much as first thought
Consistent with Department of Justice policies and procedures, the government provided notification of those subpoenas nearly three years ago by certified mail, facsimile and e-mail.
The unidentified source later confirmed that, “we also provided a certified copy of President Obama’s birth certificate.”
It appears that forger was having a buy 3 get one free special on fake “official” documents at the time.
I am just kidding...
the government provided notification of those subpoenas nearly three years ago by certified mail, facsimile and e-mail.
That means they have signed receipts from Fox. So it is easy, DOJ. Produce the receipts signed by the Fox official.
In a word, no.
true and so FOX should say put up or shut up and then report how many in the media are just using the lying talking points of this administration in order to cover for their messiah and this administration
Yeah, trust Holder’s DOJ instead. That makes sense.
