News America Incorporated Tenders For $500,000,000 Of
8 5/8% Senior Notes Due 2003

New York, NY, March 4, 2002: News America Incorporated today
offered to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding
$500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 8 5/8% Senior Notes
Due 2003 (the "Notes").  The tender offer commences at 9:00 a.m.
March 4, 2002 and will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time,
on March 11, 2002, unless extended.  Salomon Smith Barney and
JP Morgan are acting as dealer managers for the tender offer.

The price to be paid for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes
validly tendered and accepted for purchase in the tender offer
will be the price resulting from a yield to the maturity date
(February 1, 2003) equal to the sum of (i) the yield on the 4.75%
U.S. Treasury Note due January 31, 2003, as calculated by the dealer
managers in accordance with standard market practice, based on the bid
price for such U.S. Treasury Note at the time a noteholder agrees to
tender such Notes through Salomon Smith Barney, as displayed only on
Bloomberg Government Pricing Monitor Page PX3, plus (ii) 0.50% (such
price being rounded to the nearest cent per $1,000 principal amount of
Notes), together with accrued interest from the last regular payment of
semiannual interest to (but excluding) the date of payment.

This announcement is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation
of an offer to sell the Notes.  The tender offer is made only by the
Letter to Noteholders dated March 4, 2002.  Questions regarding the
transaction should be directed to Salomon Smith Barney at (800) 558-3745.
