Antitrust officials raid 21st Century Fox European offices
The European Commission said on Tuesday it had raided the offices of a number of companies involved in sports broadcasting and rights, and a unit of Rupert Murdoch’s Fox said it was cooperating with the investigation.
“The commission has concerns that the companies involved may have violated EU antitrust rules that prohibit cartels and restrictive business practices,” it said in a statement, after raiding offices in several member states.
“Unannounced inspections are a preliminary step into suspected anticompetitive practices. [It] … does not mean that the companies are guilty of anti-competitive behaviour nor does it prejudge the outcome of the investigation itself.”
"It is the duty of a newspaper to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable."
