NEW YORK — James Murdoch, son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, has resigned from the board of directors of News Corporation, according to documents unveiled by the US Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday.

James Murdoch informed the board in a brief letter that he resigned as he disagreed with "certain editorial content" published by the company and "certain other strategic decisions."

He said that his resignation would take effect immediately.

News Corp, a family media empire founded by James' father Rupert Murdoch, owns a long list of media outlets around the world, including the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post in the United States.
