How Media Consolidation Threatens Democracy: 857 Channels (and Nothing On) 15.5.2017 Truthout.com
(Photo: Tookapic ; Edited: LW / TO) Earlier this week, we wrote about a pending deal between Sinclair Broadcasting and Tribune Media . Sinclair hopes to buy Tribune, a move that will allow the company to broadcast news to 70 percent of Americans. But the deal has raised eyebrows. The company is notoriously close with Trump, and also favored George W. Bush when he was president. The company's DC office produces conservative commentary and news segments that paint Republicans in a favorable light, and distributes them to local stations around the country. Some worry that Sinclair hopes to create a competitor to Fox News , operating out of local television stations across America. To see more stories like this, visit Moyers & Company at Truthout. If the deal does go through -- anti-trust regulators and the FCC will have to approve it -- it will only have been possible because earlier this year, Trump's FCC chair Ajit Pai relaxed rules preventing media consolidation. Like much the FCC deals with -- net ...

Fox harassment claims cloud Sky takeover bid 10.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
London • A U.K. scandal torpedoed Rupert Murdoch’s first attempt to take control of British-based broadcaster Sky. Now claims of sexual harassment at his U.S.-based Fox News are creating storm clouds around a second. A woman who says she was mistreated by former Fox TV star Bill O’Reilly is calling on British regulators to reject 21st Century Fox’s bid to buy the 61 percent of Sky that it doesn’t already own, saying the deal would allow Fox to bring a culture of sexual and racial harassment to t... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Liberty Global pares growth target on UK slowness 9.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Liberty Global lowered its growth target for Europe this year as billionaire John Malone’s cable carrier reported a weaker-than-expected start in the U.K. Liberty now forecasts operating cash flow growth of 5 percent for 2017, down from February’s outlook of 6 percent to 7 percent, the London-based company said Sunday. The operator lost more customers than expected in the U.K. in the first quarter, following two price increases last year and challenges with the launch of a new video product. Mob...
Business News Roundup, May 9 9.5.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
The company announced Monday that it will pay about $3.9 billion for Tribune Media and its 42 stations, which includes KTLA in Los Angeles, WGN in Chicago and WPIX in New York. Sinclair said it may have to sell some stations to comply with Federal Communications Commission rules, although the FCC has recently loosened rules related to media ownership. In all, Sinclair said its stations will reach 72 percent of all U.S. households with a TV once the Tribune and Bonten deals close. Jeffrey McCall, a media studies professor at DePauw University in Indiana, said buying Tribune will give Sinclair more power to negotiate better deals with cable companies and national advertisers. Late last year, Sinclair had to defend itself against news reports that it made a deal with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign for favorable coverage in its newscasts. Bumble Bee Foods has agreed to pay a $25 million fine after pleading guilty to conspiring with competitors to fix prices, the U.S. Department of Justice said ...
