Should Murdoch get his hands on bskyb then,the name

will come as no surprise to anyone.

You only have to look at the photo of Rebekah Brook and Rupert Murdoch to see there's more to it, as the saying goes, A PICTURE PAINTS A THOUSAND WORD, so i say no more, you decide.

Why haven't the police got search warrants for all Murdoch properties and so secured any evidence - are they still on the take ???

Did you ask your reporters how they managed to get so many scoops over so many years Rupert or, as I suspect, were you only interested in profit at any price?. Furthermore I have a bet that you won't have the guts to tell us.

what do you expect from a jew or is he a catholic now. their god is money that is why the more you pay for a seat at the synagogue the closer to the front you get , and remember if you are not jewish you are not welcome at their temple. the reason being that they believe only in the old testament and it says that they are the chosen people. that is why they thing they are better than the gentiles.


anonymous 

you cant say no to israel because they keep bringing your guilty conscience of the holocaust to bare.
they use that as a sympathetic weapon then they go on their hunt to make their political gains. Most of the banking and media is owned by the jews and they have even infiltrated various areas of american govt - if it was that easy middle east would have wiped out israel in a heart beat - notice how it is one country surrounded by so many muslim countries - seems rather strange doesnt it. The jewish lobby is there to make sure israel stays and the views of all jews are protected. You can't even hold an opinion against them before they attack you as if what they say is the only correct opinion. They don't practice democracy they practice communist ideology - there is no sense of people - it is just them vs everyone else.

It does seem a touch strange that for something of the nature that has occurred at a newspaper, both, brooks and Coulson have both claimed they had no knowledge of these practices.
I suppose I can believe Mrs Brooks as there could be two reasonable explanations as to why she is still in gainful employment while the poor unfortunate muck rakers which are still in this venerable titles employ will loose their jobs....The first of these completely believable explanations is Mrs Brooks must have been busy beating up her husband for the 42nd at this time at this point during their deliriously happy marriage.....
Second completely believable explanation as to why Mrs Brooks is still enjoying gainful employment is she Is,,, Or Has,, Or Promised to,,, shagging one or more of the Rupert household.......!!!!!
Including Ms Rupert...!!!
As for Mr Coulson,,, I just really believe he's just a lying git who will do anything to avoid reprecussions of his actions....!!!
As for ,,, the person sitting in ten Downing st,,, saying he was just giving someone a second chance,,,, 
There are tens of thousands of people in this country who have lost their jobs,, trying to keep a roof over their heads,, trying to feed their families,, will be trying to keep their children warm this coming winter with the increacesd in fuel prices.
What would they give "For a second chance...?????"
And what did he do when he offered this clown from the gutter press a position on his staff even though he was definately aware of the allegations against this prat...???
He believed every word he told him.....!!!
Does not appear checked..!!!

Now it appears we will be getting another Sunday toilet tissue in place of the one that will depart this Sunday,,, and no doubt it will be read avidly by people who's entire existence is based around the Xfactor and who are intellectually challenged by Shaun the Sheep and think Jeremy Kyle is the person who will save this contry from certain doom....!!!!!

not another sheep 
One EVIL @#$% paper down in this zionazis empire now we can take down the SCUM aka the sun
this evil paper and its evil staff do not deserve to be bought by the decent people of this country for tooo long you have bought this vile filth thinking it was about democracy now you know its all about creating an evil mind set in us the british public to support evil polices of israel.

remember it was a zionist who did this to this nation and it fallen soliders its fallen victims of evil and their familes it was a zionist who embodies everything israel is about.

david cameron is in the pocket of this zionist and must be thrown out at the next election

One can only hope that murkydoc and brookes will both be detained for questioning in the near future. The fact that an executive is reported to have wiped millions of emails signals the desparation surrounding this disgusting affair. If there was nothing to hide why wipe these files? This may well end up being a farce of knowing full well who's done what, but the available evidence fails to impress the judge and jury.
What a shambles (again). Hopefully the bskyb issue will not go murkydocs way, and that the share price continues to slide. These scumbags only know the financial bottom line, not how to treat workers and public with respect and dignity. They deserve our obsolute contempt.

BSkyB shares slump on doubts over deal

08/07 16:37 CET


Controversy - Journalist - Media - Mobile Telephony - Telecommunication


BSkyB shares slumped further on Friday because of the phone hacking scandal involving Rupert Murdoch’s News Of The World tabloid newspaper.

The UK government has warned it will take “some time” to reach a decision on whether to allow Murdoch to take full control of the British pay-TV satellite broadcaster.

Murdoch has to have government permission to acquire the 61 percent stake in BSkyB he does not already own.

The Department for Media has examined News Corp’s planned takeover of BSkyB in terms of whether it will affect media plurality and the number of “media voices” present in Britain.

After the sudden closure of Britain’s biggest-selling Sunday newspaper due to its involvement a phone hacking scandal, the government warned that its final decision could “take some time” due to the number of responses submitted to a final consultation, all adding to an increasingly uncertain picture around the deal.

“The Secretary of State … will consider all relevant factors including whether the announcement regarding the News of the World’s closure has any impact on the question of media plurality,” it said in a statement.

The British government had always said that the phone hacking scandal and the BSkyB takeover were not linked from a legal standpoint but analysts, who had widely expected the deal to be approved, have started to turn more cautious.

“I don’t see how this deal can go ahead now,” said Panmure Gordon’s Alex DeGroote while warning the speed at which events are unfolding meant investors were “into totally uncharted territory”.

UK phone hacking scandal fallout spreads

The phone hacking scandal in the UK is spreading.

Police have arrested Andy Coulson, the former editor of the News of the World, the paper at the heart of the row that is now being shut down.

Coulson went on to become David Cameron’s spokesman.

The British prime minister addressed that issue today – and called for new press regulations.

“I believe we need a new system entirely,” he said. “It will be for the inquiry to recommend what the system should look like. But my starting presumption is that it should be truly independent – independent of the press so that the public will know that newspapers will never again be solely responsible for policing themselves, but vitally independent of government so the public will know that politicians are not trying to control or muzzle a press that must be free to hold politicians to account.”

The News of the World is owned by Rupert Murdoch. The hacking scandal has increased public opposition to his efforts to expand his empire in the UK.

But police have also been searching another tabloid paper’s offices today.

And they have re-arrested a former royal correspondant from the News of the World.

The paper’s last edition may be this Sunday. But it looks like it will be making headlines for some time to come.



Murdoch flies to London to close tabloid

09/07 

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is flying to London on Sunday to safeguard his multi-billion euro British business empire.

His arrival coincides with the final edition of the News of the World, the tabloid at the centre of a phone hacking scandal.

The Australian tycoon has sacrificed the UK’s best selling paper to try to protect his buyout of satellite broadcaster BskyB.

Andy Coulson, ex-Editor and former spokesman to Prime Minister David Cameron has been released on bail after being arrested in connection with the scandal.

Meanwhile Shadow Culture Secretary Ivan Lewis from the opposition Labour party has written to the British leader demanding he speed up the start of a public inquiry into the allegations.

“There is such a level of public concern at this issue, as well as real concerns about preserving the relevant documentation (relating to the inquiry) which will enable people to get to the bottom of this,” he said.

“The appointment of the judge today is absolutely crucial.”

Rupert Murdoch’s 15.7 billion euro buy-out of the UK’s main pay TV network has been put on hold.

The 80-year-old will have to wait six months to find out if lawmakers demand stronger media ownership rules.

Sunday is the final day of Britain’s oldest newspaper, which printed its first edition in 1843.

Ironically, despite popular Facebook campaigns calling for a boycott of the paper, editors say they are planning to double tomorrow’s print run.

World’s end comes as a shock

World’s end comes as a shock

It is a newspaper known for its scoops, scandals and celebrity gossip. Nicknamed News of the Screws (as in ‘who’s been screwing who?’), it has been something of an institution in the UK, albeit one that is looked down on by the snobbier elements of the press. In the last few days it has been deserted by its advertisers and by its own readers. The announcement that the weekly tabloid the News of the World will print its last issue on Sunday has sent a shock-wave through Britain’s media landscape. And the repercussions may be even more significant.

After 168 years of existence, and despite remaining profitable and popular, Rupert Murdoch’s News International has decided that the phone hacking scandal surrounding the NOTW has made the tabloid too toxic for it to handle. Scores of journalists with no connection to the phone hacking affair may lose their jobs. 

But there is no room in Murdoch’s world for such sentimentality. Sky News, another of Murdoch’s UK media outlets, reported that the NOTW’s editor was told of his paper’s closure just 20 minutes before it was announced publicly. Business is business. Profitable or not, the newspaper that launched Murdoch internationally in 1969 is still, after all, just a small outpost in his media empire. No big loss to him. 

In fact, it’s an opportunity.

The News of the World is not likely to be missed for long. Yes, it has left a void of around 2.5 million Sunday readers, but the speed of its downfall has taken the British media by surprise. No-one saw it coming, meaning no-one is ready to fill the gap in the market – apart, of course, from Murdoch himself. The Sun, a Monday-to-Saturday tabloid, sister paper to the NOTW and another of Murdoch’s flock, is now widely tipped to step into the breach. The Sun on Sunday. Sun every day of the week.

This presents Murdoch with an opportunity to streamline his UK tabloid activities, make some savings and refine his UK media strategy. If the Sun on Sunday does emerge – and the domain name sunonsunday.com was registered on Tuesday – it can take the baton from its sacrificed sister almost seamlessly. Despite being run by the same people as the NOTW, The Sun’s reputation is not likely to suffer from the scandal. Murdoch will have simply re-branded the NOTW, something many observers believe he wanted to do anyway


Then there is the bigger picture. Before claims emerged that the News of the World had hacked the phones of missing schoolgirls and the families of dead soldiers, Murdoch’s News Corporation was set to be given the government’s green light to buy out BSkyB, the UK’s biggest pay-TV broadcaster. There was very vocal opposition but no compelling legal obstacle to the take-over. 

Then the scandal broke and things changed. Suddenly the opponents of the deal had a chance to scupper it; their argument became more convincing. News Corp shares started falling. So Murdoch simply cut theNOTW loose. He washed his hands of the problem.

The take-over is still likely to go ahead, although perhaps not as soon as Murdoch had hoped. If it does, he will have more control over what the UK public reads and watches than any other person in the country’s history. It is a thought the non-Murdoch press dreads but one it believes it now has a fighting chance of stopping.

The fight of the front pages seems about to intensify.

British PM calls for press overhaul

08/07 12:03 CET


Britain’s prime minister has called for a complete overhaul of the UK’s press regulations system in the wake of the media hacking scandal that has forced the closure of the News of the World newspaper.

David Cameron also said that the police inquiry into possible criminal activities at the Sunday tabloid would not answer all the public’s questions. “That is why I want to establish a second inquiry to begin at the earliest available opportunity, ideally now, this summer,” he said. “This inquiry should be conducted by a credible panel of figures drawn from a range of different backgrounds who command the full support, respect and above all confidence of the public. They should be truly independent without any motive but to seek the truth and clean up the press.”

As expected, police arrested Andy Coulson on Friday – the former editor of the News of the World who quit as Cameron’s communications chief as the hacking scandal ballooned.

This Sunday will be the last edition of the paper – just one small part of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation empire. But the full fallout of the affair is likely to spread far wider than this one title.

Murdoch empire under threat?


Rupert Murdoch is one of the world’s wealthiest individuals who has built a hugely powerful and profitable corporate machine – a media business that politicians ignore or challenge at their own risk.

The question now is how much the phone-tapping allegations could damage Murdoch’s News Corporation.

The sudden closure of the News Of The World – Britain’s biggest-selling Sunday newspaper – came as advertisers fled in response to the phone-tapping.

However he has plenty more sources of revenue – dozens of brands earned 23 billion euros last year.

TV is most profitable turning over 10.5 billion euros, from both the channels themselves and the means of distribution via cable companies. Film studios brought in 5.3 billion and newspapers 4.5 billion.

With newspaper advertising slipping as people turn more to the internet for information Murdoch is concentrating more on TV and that is where the hacking scandal could hurt him.

His request to take full control of UK satellite broadcaster BSkyB is currently awaiting approval by the UK government and will only be allowed if News Corporation is considered to be a “fit and proper” owner.

Branson 'To Give Ross Breakfast Radio Show'

Fri, Jul 8, 2011

Sir Richard Branson is set to revive his Virgin Radio brand and give Jonathan Ross his own breakfast show, Sky's City editor has learned.

Writing on his blog , Mark Kleinman said the pair are part of a consortium which is in talks to buy Absolute Radio, formerly known as Virgin Radio, for around £20m.

The bid, which would see the name return 14 years after Sir Richard sold the business, is being led by former Virgin Radio boss John Pearson.

Kleinman said the Virgin-branded consortium is understood to have been competing with Belfast-based UTV for control of Absolute.

He understands Ross has not formally agreed his involvement but met Sir Richard for talks earlier this week.

The presenter would likely become be a minority shareholder in the venture and would present a flagship breakfast show, Kleinman added.

It would mark his return to radio broadcasting after the 2008 Sachsgate affair, in which he and comedian Russell Brand left lewd messages on the answer phone of actor Andrew Sachs.

Ross left the BBC, including his Friday night chat show, in 2010 after deciding not to renew his contract.

Sir Richard sold Virgin Radio to TV presenter Chris Evans in 1997 for £80m.

It was then sold to Scottish Media Group (SMG) for £225m in 2000, a deal from which Evans personally made £75m.

SMG then sold it to TIML Radio in 2008 for £53.2m.

It was subsequently rebranded as Absolute Radio, which mainly plays guitar-based rock music.

Virgin Group, Pearson and a spokesman for Ross all declined to comment.

Britons 'handcuffed and shackled' in Israel

Twelve Britons have been detained in Israel on attempt to visit the West Bank town of Bethlehem.'Charges unclear'

12 held ahead of Bethlehem visit


Twelve British people have been detained in Israel while making an attempt to visit the West Bank town of Bethlehem, according to campaigners.

The Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign, which was co-ordinating the British arm of the visit, said its chairman Mick Napier, 64, a university teacher, was amongst four Scots arrested at Israel's Ben Gurion Airport.

The flight also included five English and three Welsh people.

The campaign said the specific charges against them is still unclear. Around 700 people from around the world had intended to visit Bethlehem on the invitation of families there.

Sofiah Macleod, the UK-based contact for the campaign, said: "I spoke to consular staff this morning who told me that the arrest was quite rough. They were all handcuffed and shackled and put into vans after standing around for quite a long time, and you can see from their ages that a lot of them are retired. Otherwise they`re all fine."

She said that travel to the West Bank is theoretically open to British passport holders, unlike Gaza which is currently under Israeli blockade.

Frank Thomas, 66, a retired statistician from Edinburgh; Ian Stewart-Hargreaves, who lives on Isle of Lewis; and Joy Cherkaoui, a community worker from Dumfries and Galloway, were also amongst the Scots.

The English passengers were John Lynes, 83, a retired university lecturer from East Sussex; Audrey Gray, 77, a retired nurse from West Chiltington; Val Kitchen, 68, from Tonbridge; Anne Gray, 66, a retired academic from London; and Les Levidow, 61, an Open University research fellow who works in Milton Keynes.

The three Welsh passengers were Pippa Bartolotti, 57, deputy leader of the Wales Green Party; Dee Murphy, 56, from Swansea, founder member of Swansea Palestine Community Link; and Joyce Giblin. The twelfth passenger Fiona Williams has also been identified as British, although her exact nationality is unknown.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We have received reports of a number of British nationals being detained at the airport in Tel Aviv. We have a consular team at the airport who are seeking access to them to ensure that we can provide the appropriate assistance."
