Media mogul Rupert Murdoch ordered his U.S. editors to kill any negative stories about President Clinton and his wife Hillary, according to claims in a lawsuit.
Murdoch, whose News Corp. of America owns the Fox News Channel and the New York Post, is being sued by former Post gossip writer Jared Paul Stern, who contends he was fired illegally, reports the UK's Press Gazette.
The Post dismissed Stern last year after he allegedly demanded $100,000 and a $10,000 monthly stipend from California businessman Ron Burkle to keep negative stories about him out of the paper.
Charges about how Murdoch controls his newspapers come in an affidavit by another fired Post staffer, Ian Spiegelman, who disputes Murdoch's claim of non-interference in daily operations.
Spiegelman contends Murdoch ordered New York Post editors to kill any negative stories about the Clintons.
He also claims Murdoch made decisions to avoid angering the communist regime in China. Murdoch allegedly ordered the Post to kill a story about a Chinese diplomat's visits to a New York strip club because he didn't want to jeopardize his company's broadcasting in China. More....
