Re: News of the World news...
So what are you feeling about NI's bid to control 100% of BSkyB now, in light of the Culture secretary's announcement that he would refer it to the Competition Commission as well as invite opinion from Ofcom?

I'm a bit uneasy about this. I think that unless the revelations involving The Sun and the Times really snowball, the delay could play into Murdoch's hands. The Competition Commission are likely to wave it through, I'd have thought. This may all come down to the actions of Ofcom.

It's quite gratifying reading all the comments from Sky News viewers (some of them definitely not lefties) warning that they'll drop the channel if it turns into a British Fox News.
