CHICAGO - US authorities are investigating if Britain's News Corp had a broader pattern of misconduct in the United States, the Wall Street Journal reported in its online edition on Saturday.

The latest investigation concerns past allegations of misconduct, including the company's supermarket-coupon and advertising unit that settled a lawsuit from a competitor alleging computer hacking, the newspaper said.

News Corp owns the Wall Street Journal.

US and British investigators have not yet found evidence in phone-hacking investigations that victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States were targeted, the Wall Street Journal said. Allegations of such hacking stemmed from an article in Britain's Daily Mirror.

The FBI said on July 14 that it was examining allegations that News Corp may have tried to hack into phone records of Sept. 11 victims.
