You can use the talking points below as a starting point. But Ofcom has said it will count identical submissions as just one, so write a personal message, and use examples which speak to you.
- The Murdochs and their people have a long history of tearing up media regulations, breaking laws and arm-twisting politicians. I don’t believe they can be trusted with more control over Britain’s media.
- Fox News’ coverage of the terrible Westminster attack was offensive and harmful and shows what could be in store if the Murdochs fully take over Sky.
- Keeping Sky independent contributes to the range of news sources we need for a healthy and informed, democratic society.
