A source close to News Corp said the board "understood" the importance of the report by MPs that said CEO Rupert Murdoch was "not a fit person" to run the company and earlier "met to review its findings".
The report came out and the board understood its importance and met to review its findings.
Earlier, the media company released a statement saying they had "full confidence" in Mr Murdoch.

Rupert Murdoch has been accused of not being "a fit person" to run News Corporation.
The MPs may not all have agreed on the conclusion, yet the report could have powerful implications for the Murdoch empire
