I see Comcast revoking the Sky News branding license soon unless there was some sort of long term deal associated with the acquisition. I imagine they aren’t too happy (the controlling family of Comcast and some board members are Democrats or at the very least liberal leaning).
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

A reminder of how Sky News Australia is Fox News in all but name under Murdoch.




The ABC - tax-payer funded by the way - in unashamedly left-wing so it's just balancing it up. Newspapers have opinion pages. Sky is free to lean however it wants.

Eh, if I recall, prior to the Sky Acquisition, Comcast never really had any connection in Australia. They are probably monitoring to see if they could either get a name change or make a hard line between Sky News UK and Australia.

So is Sky News Australia. Wink

Australian politics confuse me, I just don’t get it. If you could explain please.

Let's wait for one of our Australian friends to give us a full explanation, but here's the short version: Australia's Liberal Party is actually a right-wing, conservative party -- so Sky News Australia could accurately be described as "Liberal leaning" (with a capital "L").

Labor are socialist. Liberals are capitalist.

Have Labor always been socialist? No. Bob Hawke was in the middle and extremely popular.

And just a general comment re: people who criticise “Sky After Dark” - they don’t complain about MSNBC, CNN, the ABC, etc.

Call the top of this post simplistic but it’s a fact.

By the way, just some trivia to show the magnitude of the election shock - bookmakers were paying $11 for a Liberal victory! Razz

And by the way, for anyone who can’t work out that accent on that Sky News guy, he’s British.
