Panel Says No Evidence of Wrongdoing at Dow Jones

Saturday, 16 Jul 2011 05:45 PM

 

NEW YORK (AP) — The independent committee charged with monitoring editorial integrity at The Wall Street Journal said Saturday it has found no evidence of wrongdoing at the Journal or Dow Jones & Co., which are owned by News Corp.

The group also said in a statement that it did not believe Les Hinton's resignation as publisher of the Journal and chief executive of Dow Jones & Co. was related to activities at the Journal or Dow Jones.

Hinton resigned Friday, a result of the phone-hacking scandal at some of News Corp.'s British newspapers. He had been chairman of News Corp.'s British newspaper for some of the years its staffers allegedly hacked into cell phones in search of news scoops.

The Dow Jones Special Committee formed in 2007 when News Corp. purchased Dow Jones.
