Quote:
"Sky has threatened to shut down Sky News if the news channel proves to be an obstacle in Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox bid.

Regulators are investigating the deal amid concerns that Mr Murdoch's media empire could become too powerful.

Sky told the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) that the regulator should not assume "the continued provision" of Sky News.

BBC media editor Amol Rajan said it was a "credible threat".

Fox owns 39% of Sky but wants full control of the satellite broadcaster."

Its a terrible news channel. Nothing is in depth, extremely limited scope in how it reports.

Its a brain dead news service.
would it be missed, Channel4, BBC and ITN are sufficient surely.
ByeBye Kay Burley. & co.
I saw this earlier and i'm still wondering why they thought anyone would care if it went!

The BBC is totally politically biassed & too sport oriented on most of their channels.

I know. Fox is more important due to its USA coverage in numbers. Its a tabloid news channel but it fits the Murdoch agenda.

And they’re trying to flog women's sports especially women's football, pretending they’re more popular than the men’s sports.
When it comes to elections sky news does give the best election coverage. Put it this way I would rather sky news than bbc news.
