James Murdoch as Fox TV head would be a 'slap in the face' to shareholders | Media | guardian.co.uk

News Corp shareholders have reacted angrily to news that James Murdoch could soon run the media giant's flagship Fox TV channel.

The son of News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch was heavily criticised on Thursday by British regulators over his role in the hacking scandal. On the same day, news broke he may soon be given control of some of the media firm's most high profile assets.

One dissident shareholder called the news a "slap in the face for shareholders, not to mention victims of the hacking scandal".
