This is an update on a story we ran this morning, which you can find HERE
It’s not often a rep for one of the most powerful men in the world comes knocking at your door but that’s what happened after we published our story about SKY NEWS rebranding to FOX NEWS.
But while it wasn’t a literal knock, we did receive an e-mail, saying:
“There is absolutely no plans to rebrand Sky News as Fox News. It is simply not true.”
Earlier in the day we ran a story based on information from several sources and a paper trail showing Sky News would be rebranding as Fox News, possibly within weeks.
In the original story we included a denial from Foxtel and Sky News but the information kept adding up, including the fact SKY NEWS AUSTRALIA licences the name from its UK counterpart after Rupert Murdoch sold SKY TV to Comcast in 2018.
Our sources said that arrangement was a five-year deal and was coming to an end.
On top of that, there has been a flurry of activity with IP applications, as we also revealed.
While it might be a case of “if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck”, apparently this time it’s not a duck!
So, this might either allay your fears or be disappointing news. Either way my radar is up — something is going on!
