Fox pledges to uphold Sky News

(MENAFN) 21st Century Fox has vowed to guarantee the independence of Sky News as it aims to overcome issues involving its plans to takeover Sky.

According to the company, it will be dedicated to sustain Sky News for over five years and would establish a fully independent board for the channel.

Fox said: "the effect of the proposal indicates that there could be no circumstances in which, post-transaction, the MFT or members of the Murdoch family could influence, whether directly or indirectly, the editorial line or policy of Sky News".

If Fox's deal does proceed, the whole of Sky would be expected to transfer to Disney's ownership.
