FBI Investigated Whether Wall Street Journal Reporters Bribed Chinese Officials for Information

The FBI’s investigation into News Corporation last year included an inquiry into claims that the Wall Street Journal’s China bureau bribed local officials for information, the New York Times reports.

It’s unclear what – if anything – the FBI found during the investigation, which originally began over a phone-hacking scandal in 2011.

The Wall Street Journal conducted its own probe over claims that employees in the China bureau were giving officials gifts in exchange for information, the Times wrote, citing the newspaper’s spokeswoman, Paula Keve.

“After a thorough review of our operations in China conducted by outside lawyers and auditors, we have not found any evidence of impropriety at Dow Jones,” Keve told the Times. “Nor has anyone taken issue with our findings.”

The FBI declined to comment or say whether agents were still investigating the bribery claims.
