Jeremy Hunt’s decision to let Murdoch buy the rest of BSkyB has been seen by many as a sign of the death of media plurality in the UK. But Michael White over at the Guardian tells his readers not to worry.
Before we get too horrified over the spectacle of Rupert Murdoch getting his wicked way with the fair maiden BSkyB, it is important to get things in perspective and remember that he will be 80 next week. So he will soon be dead.
Later on, White adds.
Fortunately he was born on 11 March 1931, so the referee is looking at his watch.
Stay classy, Michael!
