The Wall Street Journal is viewed on July 18, 2011 in Washington,DC. The News Corp.-owned Wall Street Journal blasted critics Monday for double standards and insisted that the phone-tapping scandal in Britain should not tarnish all of Rupert Murdoch's media empire. The powerful Journal, the flagship of Murdoch's US print operations, also warned that pressure to investigate News Corp. under US laws against bribing foreign officials could backfire on the entire media. 'Do our media brethren really want to invite Congress and prosecutors to regulate how journalists gather the news?' the country's leading financial newspaper asked in an editorial. The newspaper, owned by Dow Jones & Co, taken over by News Corp. four years ago, accused politicians and competitors of 'using the phone-hacking years ago at a British corner of News Corp. to assail the Journal, and perhaps injure press freedom as well.'
