REPORT: U.S. FINANCIAL CRIME EXPERTS INVESTIGATING FOX NEWS

CBS News:

The federal investigation into Fox News is widening with two agencies now looking into the network’s practices.

A person familiar with the investigation has confirmed to CBS News that investigators from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service are involved in the Justice Department probe into Fox News. That investigation is reportedly looking into money matters at the network, reports CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan.

While the existence of the Justice Department investigation came to light two months ago, the Postal Inspection Service’s involvement is new.

Meanwhile, the network has been lashed by a series of conduct-related lawsuits.

Eleven current and former employees filed a class action suit last month, claiming executives fostered a “culture of severe racial harassment” and ignored their complaints going back years.

Fox News denied those claims, promising to “vigorously defend these cases.”
