The parent corporation of Fox News was aware three years ago that one of its reporters was being investigated by the Justice Department (DOJ) in a leak probe, according to a report.
CNN reported Saturday that a law enforcement source said the DOJ notified a media organization that they had sought detailed phone records from a reporter. A second source told CNN that media group was Fox.
A Fox News executive told CNN, however, that while the parent company, News Corporation, knew of the subpoena in May 2010, Fox News management were not informed.
The DOJ has faced criticism for its targeting of journalists who reported on classified information.
