This is big news. The important government watchdog today recommended Rupert Murdoch’s takeover of Sky be stopped in its tracks, because it handed him “too much influence over public opinion and the political agenda”. 
That is exactly what you and thousands more of us have been pushing for. We can be proud that, together, we’re bringing Murdoch’s dream to an end.
It’s not completely over yet – and there are another few steps before the government can totally scrap Murdoch’s plans. But there’s no escaping it – today’s news is what Rupert Murdoch was dreading.
This didn’t happen by accident. Some said Murdoch and his team of pricey lawyers would be more than a match for us. But together, we fought back:
So what next? There are still a few steps before the watchdog investigating the deal announces its final decision. Murdoch and his team will be fighting tooth and nail to challenge the watchdog’s recommendations. So we’ll need to keep fighting to protect our media and our democracy.
But for today, we can all celebrate a huge step in the right direction.
