The Tories’ decision puts the future of Sky News and its hard working staff at risk – Tom Watson

Tom Watson MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and Shadow Culture Secretary, commenting on the Government’s decision to clear Fox’s bid for Sky, said:

“This decision by Matt Hancock puts the future of Sky News and all its hard working staff at risk.

“Divested from its parent company, Sky News could be left isolated and adrift.

“The Tories’ decision today might be in the interests of the Murdochs but it’s hard to see how it benefits either Sky News or its viewers.”
