News Corp UK & Ireland Limited Key Developments

Crowd-Funding Campaign Seeks To Acquire Times And Sunday Times

An organization called Let’s Own The News (LOTN) is attempting to acquire The Times and Sunday Times with funds from crowd funding. LOTN is backed by the Young Foundation and plans to offer News Corp UK & Ireland Limited £50 million for the titles and is aiming to raise a further £50 million to run the papers. 42 supporters have so far pledged £67830. Laurie Fitzjohn, founder of the campaign said: “A crowd acquisition of The Times and The Sunday Times would be an important and achievable step in reducing the power of the press barons.” Simon Willis, chief executive of the Young Foundation, said: “We’re backing this campaign because we want to tackle powerful incumbent institutions and groups that perpetuate inequality. It’s fundamentally undemocratic that such immense power lies with such a small group who can use their influence to shape public opinion in a way that suits them. The media provides an important and constructive function in society, and we hope that this innovative challenge will pique public interest, promote debate, and ultimately disrupt the disproportionate ownership of the UK’s press by a handful of people.
