So, another success for Rupert Murdoch with a neat solution that seeks to resolve issues regarding the concentration of news media with one owner by convincing the Culture Secretary his independent proposals for Sky News will be effective.

The debate about the concentration of media with the Murdochs will roll on. Rightly so. Beyond the really big questions around media ownership, two questions will remain unanswered.

Without Murdoch’s massive investment in satellite TV in the late 80’s/early 90’s, would our multichannel, on demand world be in play today. Rolling news, Sky+, Premiership football anyone?

With a little more circumspection, Dr Cable would have been the one making today’s decision. Would it have been the same outcome?
