News Corp. is pooling its considerable resources together to screw over any film whose stars won’t give interviews to its outlets. From the Sydney Morning Herald:
‘Before we were quite disjointed as a company … but we are really getting together now to say ‘OK, if you don’t want the help of the Fox network then let’s see how your film goes’. We are really starting to push back,” Devlin said…What it will mean for the rest of the Hollywood studios – Sony, Paramount, MGM and Disney – remains unclear as they face the prospect of being denied any air time on Sky, Fox News and Foxtel or coverage in The New York Post, The Times and The Sun in Britain or Sydney’s Daily Telegraph.
The wonders of media consolidation at work.
