The petition text
David Cameron, Nick Clegg, and Jeremy Hunt,
We are standing up for due process and a fair future for media in the UK.
If Vince Cable isn't impartial to make decisions about the BSkyB takeover, neither is Jeremy Hunt. Jeremy Hunt is an outspoken supporter of Rupert Murdoch.
We demand that Jeremy Hunt passes Ofcom's report straight to the Competition Commission for a full-scale investigation, without political interference.
Your comments on this campaign
David Cameron has put Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt in charge of reviewing Rupert Murdoch's BSkyB power grab.
Jeremy Hunt has said:
"Rather than worry about Rupert Murdoch owning another TV channel, what we should recognise is that he has probably done more to create variety and choice in British TV than any other single person because of his huge investment in setting up Sky TV, which, at one point, was losing several million pounds a day.
We would be the poorer and wouldn't be saying that British TV is the envy of the world if it hadn't been for him being prepared to take that commercial risk. We need to encourage that kind of investment."
If Vince Cable is not impartial, neither is Jeremy Hunt! The only difference is that Vince Cable spoke out against the Murdoch empire, whilst Jeremy Hunt has spoken out in support of the Murdoch empire.
Sign the petition to demand an end to political interference in the BSkyB Murdoch's decision -- the only way for Jeremy Hunt to act impartially is for him to instruct the Competition Commission to hold a full investigation.
