The key point here is the sheer amount of influence Murdoch carries across the globe. Certainly his media outlets, particular his newspapers all lean right...often in a big way.
In Britian he part owns the biggest Sat.TV station, National Newspapers, Stakes in several football clubs, (including my own team) and on and on...this is similar elsewhere in the world too.
He is anti- Euro and he owns the biggest selling tabloid and Broadsheet papers in Britian. They reflect his often rabidly anti-Europe agenda. Part of the reason the government will not go for a referndum on joing the Euro is becuase it knows with Murdoch's guns ranged against them its chances of success would go from slim to zero.
It can't be healthy for one individual, a non-European, with a vehemently anti-European agenda all his own, to hold such influence over fundemental government policy.
But no one dare take him on, for obvious reasons.
Fox News is the TV equivilent of The Sun in Britain...reactionary, dumb, more propaganda than news. Trash TV.
