Breaking: a new investigation shows that Murdoch and his officials are having secret meetings with top government ministers.

I just had this news in an email:


Breaking: a new investigation shows that Murdoch and his officials are having secret meetings with top government ministers. [1] He’s been ramping up the pressure on politicians - while trying to fast-track a deal to take over Sky and grow his media empire. [2]

If Murdoch is successful, he’ll control what is beamed into over 22 million homes. [3] He’ll have even greater power over what news we see and how we see it.

Right now, Karen Bradley, the government minister responsible for newspapers and TV, is deciding whether to launch an independent investigation that’ll have the power to stop the deal. [4] A huge petition, signed by thousands of us, will show we expect her to stand up to Rupert Murdoch.



Our investigation with the Media Reform Coalition showed that:


  • Murdoch and his advisors have been meeting the government at a rate equal to a meeting once every three weeks. [5]

  • Murdoch’s influence extends to the very top: he had back-to-back meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May and Chancellor Philip Hammond in September 2016. [6]


Murdoch is using his influence to try to push his deal through. But the good news is, we’ve beaten him before. Back in 2011, Murdoch attempted a BSkyB power grab. 38 Degrees members launched a people-powered campaign - and we won. Murdoch was stopped because thousands of people came together, and our voices were impossible to ignore. [7]


We can do it again, but we’ve got to act fast. Murdoch’s team is already getting the pieces in place so the government will fast-track his deal. [8]
