MONTRÉAL--(Business Wire)--
News Corporation (NASDAQ: NWS, NWSA; ASX: NWS, NWSLV) (the "Corporation") today
announced that it has applied to the Autorité des marchés financiers for a
decision that it be deemed to have ceased to be a reporting issuer in Québec. If
the decision is granted, the Corporation will no longer be a reporting issuer in
any jurisdiction in Canada. 

The Corporation does not believe that its securityholders in Canada will be
materially prejudiced by this decision since the nature and scope of publicly
available information about the Corporation required by U.S. securities laws is
substantially the same as the information such securityholders are currently
receiving under the U.S./Canada Multijurisdictional Disclosure System. 

The Corporation's securityholders, including those resident in Québec, will
continue to have access to the Corporation`s disclosure documents filed with the
United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") through the
Corporation's corporate website at and at the SEC's web site at
