UPDATE ON MY EARLIER BLOG ‘Coalition descends into Farce: Jeremy Hunt not the right person to judge on BSkyB and Murdochs’

I don’t usually quote the Daily Mail but they have quite a good article on Jeremy Hunt’s private and public contacts with the Murdoch empire. Click here for the article.

I wonder if more details about the Murdochs and Hunt will come out soon? Can’t see the Sun or The Times doing an expose! Murdoch must be laughing all the way to his lair.

My opponent in South West Surrey has attempted to cloud the issues around his attacks on the BBC and his support for the views of James Murdoch of News International. He says ‘it is not Conservative Party policy to privatise Radio 1’ or ‘ to scrap BBC 3 or BBC 4’.

Readers can make up their own minds by reading the numerous national press stories about Mr Hunt’s views and those of his fellow Tory Shadow Ministers. For example take a look at these articles:

Times details Tory plans to sell off Radio 1
Daily Telegraph article on the Tories, Murdoch and the BBC
Hunt interview with the Daily Mail on plans to curtail BBC
The Independent questions Tory plans for BBC

And finally – How Cameron cosied up to Murdoch

The Sun newspaper recently came out in support of the Conservatives. Many national newspapers have been questioning the Conservative Party’s relationship with News International, the owners of The Sun.

Why? Take a look at my letter to Jeremy Hunt, the Tory’s Shadow Media Secretary by clicking here.
