Murdoch downplays scandal

LONDON -- Two British media outlets say News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch has been recorded calling wrongdoing by his British newspapers "next to nothing" and apparently acknowledging his reporters paid police officers for information.

In a tape obtained by the ExaroNews journalism website and broadcast on Channel 4 News, Murdoch is heard saying, "it's the biggest inquiry ever, over next to nothing."

The outlets say the tape was recorded during a meeting with journalists at The Sun newspaper in March. Murdoch told them: "We're talking about payments for news tips from cops: that's been going on a hundred years."

Several Sun staff have been charged as part a police investigation into phone hacking and bribery.

News Corp. said it had co-operated fully with police and worked hard to eliminate wrongdoing.

 

Target opening 20 stores

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Target will open an additional 20 stores in Canada this month, adding to the 48 locations already in operation across the country, the big U.S.-based retailer announced Thursday.

The new locations, opening between July 16 and July 30, include 11 in Ontario, two each in British Columbia and Alberta, and three in Saskatchewan, the first Target stores in that province.

The 20 new stores push Target past the halfway mark for store openings this year, as the retailer has announced plans to open 124 stores across Canada throughout 2013.

"After opening stores in Ontario and Western Canada, we're excited to bring the unique Target brand shopping experience to additional locations in these markets and to welcome our first guests in Saskatchewan," Target Canada president Tony Fisher said in a release.

Besides its 48 stores in Canada, Minneapolis-based Target has 1,784 locations in the United States.
