Judge Fox bid for Sky on merits not politics – James Murdoch

Judge Fox bid for Sky on merits not politics - James MurdochBy Paul Sandle and Kate Holton CAMBRIDGE, England (Reuters) – Britain should judge Rupert Murdoch’s bid for broadcaster Sky on facts and not politics or risk stifling inward investment after Brexit, his son and fellow executive James Murdoch said on Thursday. Appearing before an audience of media executives hours after the government referred Twenty-First Century Fox’s $15 billion bid for a detailed investigation, James Murdoch struck a combative tone in defence of his family’s record in building global businesses that span TV, film and news. “Whether or not 30 years ago someone had a grievance about a political position that a newspaper took … is irrelevant,” Murdoch, who is CEO of Twenty-First Century Fox and chairman of Sky, said at the Royal Television Society’s Cambridge Convention.
