Never thought I'd wish for a world in which Rupert Murdoch owns more of the British press. :dread:

Comcast and Fox cleared to buy Sky, the latter pending on Sky selling Sky News to Disney.

Thing is won't Rupert Murdoch have nothing to do with the part of Fox that's buying Sky once Disney take over Fox? Rupert Murdoch is keeping his existing news assets, but the deal was always that Disney would get all of Sky, including Sky News, so I'm really not sure where some of these "Media plurality" issues are coming from.

Unless it's Paul Dacre just twisting Theresa May's arm to strawberry float over one of his rivals.

That’s my understanding. Technically murdoch may own it for a short while whilst the Disney purchase of Fox goes through but if everything goes to plan then Disney will own murdochs shares in sky.

Fox given government clearance for takeover

Wonder what difference this will make, more Fox shows like Family Guy on Sky channels?

Unfortunately Comcast have upped their offer again and the recommendation to Sky shareholders at the moment is to accept the higher Comcast offer :dread:

Best of luck with your raging case of corporate genital warts, Britain.
