Ofcom will conduct a review of whether Sky and its chairman James Murdoch are “fit and proper” to hold and operate a UK broadcasting licence.


At least the Poms are prepared to have a review of the US$18 billion bid for Sky from 21st Century Fox. In Australia, the Turnbull government and Nick Xenophon are negotiating a dodgy trade-off: tighter gambling advertising restrictions against easing the already weak media ownership laws in Australia that will allow the Murdoch’s other company, News Corp, the ability to further increase its control over the Australian media — whether it is print, broadcast, radio or online.
