Rupert Murdoch continues to woo the Bancroft family. In a letter sent over the weekend to family members, he offered to place a Bancroft family member on the News Corp. board and promised an independent editorial board, stating that "maintaining editorial integrity" was of utmost importance to him. He also asked to meet with family and company representatives. See WSJ, Murdoch Sends Letter to Bancrofts WSJ has posted the letter on its website.
