I'm right, you know …

Murdoch and BSkyB … So what?

Much like Timmy, I too am at a loss to understand by people are getting so uptight about Murdoch taking the remaining third party interests in BskyB.

Apart from the fact that he virtually controls the company anyway, why the fuss over him being such a major player in the media? Well, I guess there is some genuine concern over one organisation having such a large portion of the media market. I’m sure that one of the chief complainers to Vince Cable – the BBC – wouldn’t want to see one single corporation being able to throw so much weight around, distorting the market. Oh ….

Anyway, back to reality. The point surely is that Murdoch has only acquired such a position by providing the paying public with what they want to read and watch. After all, if he didn’t serve his customers well they could and would stop paying their subscriptions, and his advertisers would then follow. In their crusade for fair competition in the world of broadcasting, this would surely be another point that the BBC understands well. Oh ….
