Fox News ChannelOpens second front in effort have all News Corp. TV licenses revoked


Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has petitioned the FCC to deny renewal of three Washington-area Fox-owned TV stations. The group had signaled the move last spring in the wake of the News of the World phone hacking scandal in Britain.

CREW last spring asked the FCC to yank all Fox licenses, alleging that News Corp.'s Rupert and James Murdoch don't have the character qualifications to hold station licenses. The FCC has taken no action to date, the group pointed out, which prompted them to open the second front with the F.C. challenge to the station renewals.
