Between Vince Cable and Rupert Murdoch?
Cable has been stripped of all media responsibilities and has offered an apology. 1-0 Murdoch.
It's not about winning the fight, it's about winning the war.
We won't know the winner until we know the outcome of Murdoch's attempt to take a bigger share in Sky.....
"Rather than worry about Rupert Murdoch owning another TV channel, what we should recognise is that he has probably done more to create variety and choice in British TV than any other single person because of his huge investment in setting up Sky TV which, at one point, was losing several million pounds a day.
"We would be the poorer and wouldn't be saying that British TV is the envy of the world if it hadn't been for him being prepared to take that commercial risk. We need to encourage that kind of investment."
Well, Jeremy Hunt has being handed the power over Murdoch's bid now. The same Jeremy Hunt who had this to say about Murdoch:
So, that's 2-0 Murdoch, I think...
I was watching Sky News late last night and they had Kelvin MacKenzie on going over today's papers. He was absolutely indignant with rage that Cable hadn't been removed from the cabinet.[/QUOTE]
Personally,I'm incandscent with rage(not to say indignant)that KM hasn't been removed from Sky(and other news channels)whether to review the papers,or anything really.
