Fox takeover of Sky moves closer

Rupert Murdoch’s Fox planned £11.7 billion takeover of Sky (from the current 39% ownership) has slowed again as the government may refer the issue to competition authorities. Issues are still ‘standards’ and ‘media plurality’. Last try was blown apart by the 2011 phone hacking scandal. There is also concern that Sky News could turn into ‘Trump tv’ along the lines of Fox news in the USA.
