Fox News Accusers’ Attorney to Testify in the U.K.

A lawyer who represents 20 Fox News accusers has been invited to appear before the U.K. media regulator Ofcom, as part of hearings into 21st Century Fox’s proposed acquisition of European cable giant Sky News. “I look forward to sharing the information that I have come to learn about 21st Century Fox through the dedicated men and women that I am privileged to represent,” wrote U.S. attorney Douglas Wigdor. The Guardian reported early Friday that one of the women accusing former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in a sexual-harassment case is set to meet Ofcom officials next week. The scandal has plagued Rupert Murdoch’s media empire as it tries to take control of the part of Sky News it does not already own.
