Resource description

Some media commentators have expressed deep concern at Rupert Murdoch’s Newscorp’s bid to take over BSkyB, citing the possible effects on competition in the industry and the potential for greater media ‘bundling’. In light of these worries, Charlie Beckett finds that the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Jeremy Hunt’s recent delaying tactics may force Murdoch to negotiate ‘for real’.
