Press barons, including Rupert Murdoch, could get public money following govt review

Public money could be given to billionaire press barons such as Rupert Murdoch, ostensibly so the government can ‘sell the idea’ that they are safeguarding the future of British newspapers, according to a press freedom campaigner.

Brian Cathcart, a Byline contributor and a founder of Hacked Off, suggests that since the review panel, which is charged with finding new funding solutions, is jam-packed with representatives of the mainstream newspaper industry, “it’s obvious they are meant to be the beneficiaries.”
