News Corp and BSkyB

I have to admit that I don\’t understand all this fuss:

For the sake of democracy, Vince Cable must intervene over BSkyB

National interest demands that News Corp\’s bid to take total control of BSkyB is scrutinised by Ofcom

Because as far as I\’m aware, they already have control. They\’ve got management control, certainly. The bid will change who owns all the shares, yes, but everyone other than News Corp is already a passive shareholder anyway.

So why all this fuss?
