Sky News faces uncertain future after Disney-Fox deal
Monday, 18 December 2017 - 8:11
Walt Disney's agreement to buy most of 21st Century Fox's business for $52.4bn has raised further questions about the Sky News channel's future.Before news of the deal, Rupert Murdoch's Fox had been trying to buy the 61% of satellite broadcaster Sky that it does not yet own.
Last month, Sky sent shivers down the spines of Sky News journalists by threatening to close the channel if it proved to be an obstacle in Mr Murdoch's takeover bid.
Now it seems that Sky News could fall into Disney's hands as a result of this latest piece of corporate wheeler-dealing.
