    If Rupert Murdoch was not a suitable person in 2011 to run a television company, nothing since has made him more so, as he renews his failed bid to take over the other 61% of Sky. Last time a unanimous Commons vote stopped him, after then culture secretary Jeremy Hunt’s office was exposed for backroom dealings with Murdoch’s people. Now we wait to see whether the current culture secretary, Karen Bradley, will refer the bid to Ofcom, the regulator with power to prevent over-mighty media conglomerations.
