Murdoch: I decide Sun's politics


Rupert Murdoch decides the political line of the Sun and News of the World, but not the Times and the Sunday Times, he has told a parliamentary committee.

The News Corporation chairman said he was "a traditional proprietor" as far as the red-top papers were concerned.

He decides who they back in elections but an independent board prevents him doing the same with the Times titles.

His comments were made to a Lords committee investigating media ownership and have just been made public........
