The Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office is conducting a criminal investigation into Fox News, an attorney involved and sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.
 
Judd Burstein, an attorney representing former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros, said during a hearing today that one of his clients had received a subpoena to testify before a federal grand jury investigating the use of corporate resources in connection with sexual harassment allegations against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes and his former employer, Fox News parent company 21st Century Fox.
 
Burstein said the subpoena didn't involve Tantaros but a different, unspecified, client.
 
A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara declined to comment.
 
Fox News responded to the news, saying in a statement, “Neither Fox News nor 21st Century Fox has received a subpoena but we have been in communication with the U.S. Attorney’s office for months – we have and will continue to cooperate on all inquiries with interested authorities.”

 

 

 

Imagine if Fauxnews were shutdown? Trump would get all his news from Breitbart. :doh:

Has the US Attorney looked into ESPN?

Former CEO, shouldn't effect them much. They may face a fine since he represented the company, but that'd be about it.

It could open things up for a civil suit, though.

No.
But, do I try to do better every day?
Also no.

Its an earnings reporting issue. They hid the buyouts so it didn't hurt their stock price. Pay a fine and move on
