Rupert Murdoch’s £11.7 billion offer to take full control of TV giant Sky hits a new roadblock. British Culture Secretary Karen Bradley has referred the bid to the competition watchdog. The authority will investigate the deal’s impact on media plurality and broadcasting standards in the UK. Murdoch is one of the richest media moguls on the planet. His assets include 21st Century Fox and News Corp. If the deal goes ahead, Sky will join the Sun, the Times and talkRadio in his British media empire.
