Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp has bought a 25% minority stake in Catholic broadcaster, TV Puls.
The TV channel, owned by Franciscan monks, has just 0.43% audience share of the very competitive Polish TV market. Will Murdoch, therefore - who owns Sky TV and numerous newspapers in Australia, Britain and the US - turn the mildly religious station into the Polish version of the hysterically rightwing Fox News, which he also owns?
It could have been worse: there were rumours that Silvio Berlusconi was thinking about entering the Polish TV market by buying a huge chunk of the same broadcaster.
