That can’t be allowed to happen this time. The Competition and Markets Authority must conduct a thorough review of the proposed Fox takeover, taking all the time it needs to assess its likely impact on the provision of news and entertainment in the UK. The deal would make the UK’s dominant media company – which has a near 35% share of the newspaper market – more dominant still.
The papers are owned by News Corp. The bid for Sky is from Fox.
They really are separate companies you know.
