    Do you think he is right? did and does Murdoch have too much control over various aspects of the media - newspapers, tv channels, etc?

    There are obvious dangers involved with having a single person or company control too much of the media. Thankfully the growth of the Internet and independent blogs has done a lot to help ensure that news is very quickly made public, even if it is the type of news that powerful would prefer kept quiet. However, Rupert Murdoch's empire won't be as powerful now, as it could have been, had they not have been forced to withdraw their bid for BSkyB.
