From AP, via Crain's:

News Corp. said Wednesday that David Haslingden, who has been president and chief operating officer of Fox Networks Group since January 2011, is stepping down at the end of the year.

The media company controlled by Rupert Murdoch said Mr. Haslingden is going to return to his native Australia to spend more time with his family.


A replacement was not immediately named.

Fox News Channel is one of the channels under Haslingden's purview. So what does Haslingden know, and when did he know it?

You may remember that Rebekah Brooks' personal assistant in the UK, Cheryl Carter, tried to flee to Australia before Scotland Yard prevented her departure:
She has since been criminally charged in the UK for aiding in a coverup.

This latest could be a sign that the scandal is indeed jumping the pond. Cheers.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
