Stephen Mayne made the case over a year ago in Crikey:
Given that Lachlan Murdoch is now exerting clear influence over Ten Network Holdings as acting CEO and a substantial shareholder, why aren’t the regulators examining the question of his ongoing directorship of News Corporation?
Lachlan Murdoch personally owns 50% of DMG, owner of the Nova radio network which operates in all metropolitan markets and reaches 53% of the Australian population. So how can he also be acting CEO of Ten and a director of News Corp, the largest newspaper publisher in Australia with 70% of the market?
Now the international online activist group Avaaz.org has taken things a step further by lodging a formal complaint with ACMA. It will be instructive to see how this complaint about a member of Australia’s media elite is handled.
