(LOS ANGELES) -- News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch may be taking some heat from shareholders on Friday when they get together for the company's annual shareholders meeting in Los Angeles.
Criticism is expected over the phone hacking scandal in Britain that forced News Corp. to close its best selling tabloid, The News of the World. It is alleged that the newspaper hacked the phones of more than 4,000 politicians, crime victims and celebrities in an effort to get juicy stories.
During Friday's meeting, shareholders will also have the chance to vote on the company’s board members, including Murdoch and his sons, James and Lachlan.
