SYDNEY - The Australian arm of News Corp is launching an investigation into whether there was any wrongdoing at its editorial operations in recent years after the phone hacking scandal at its UK operations.

John Hartigan, chairman and CEO of News Limited, said in a note to staff that some commentators, media outlets and politicians had tried to connect the behavior in the UK with conduct in Australia, which he said was "offensive and wrong".

He said he had "absolutely no reason to suspect any wrongdoing at News Limited."

News Corp has been rocked by a series of scandals alleging that journalists and hired investigators working for its flagship News of the World tabloid hacked into the voice mails of thousands of people, some of them victims of notorious crimes, in search of stories, and that they also bribed police officers for information.
