Media Ownership

Dismantling Murdoch’s Media Monopoly


  • March 2011
  • 350,000 signatures
For too long, Rupert Murdoch and his manipulative media empire have enjoyed undue influence over our politicians and distorted essential issues like climate change and the war in Iraq. This year the rogue media baron tried to tighten his stranglehold on the UK press by taking over BskyB.
Everyone said we couldn’t stop it but during months of tireless campaigning, we took over 1 million online actions, sent 668,784 messages and made 30,000 phone calls to members of Parliament, running stunt after stunt as well as 2 opinion polls that showed massive public opposition to Murdoch’s power grab. With some incredible reporting from The Guardian and great work with 38 Degrees, we won! Now we are focused on changing media laws so that no media baron can ever again own more than 20% of the press.
Tom Watson MP said: "Avaaz members in the UK and throughout the world lead the campaign to make politicians listen to the victims of phone hacking. Now everyone knows that Rupert Murdoch just got too powerful. The Government will have to act to make sure that a hacking scandal can never happen again. You spoke out. You made a difference. Thank you."
