Rupert Murdoch Wanted A Fox News-Style Channel In Britain: BBC Chief

Rupert Murdoch wanted to turn his British Sky News network into a Fox News-style, opinion-heavy channel, the head of the BBC said in a speech last week.

According to the Guardian, Mark Thompson, director general of the BBC, told an audience at a seminar on impartiality in broadcasting that Murdoch "had told him he would like Sky News to go down a polemical 'Fox-style' route - but that the editors of the channel had brushed off his wishes."
