The London offices of 21st Century Fox’s Fox Networks Group were raided by European Commission investigators.


It is understood that competition watchdogs gained access to the company’s offices in Hammersmith, west London, early today to seize documents and computer records.

The raid comes amid Fox's drawn out takeover of Sky, which has fallen under intense scrutiny by regulators at the U.K.'s Competition and Markets Authority.

Fox Networks Group said in a statement to CNBC that it is "cooperating fully with the EC inspection." The European Commission did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.

I wonder is this one of the reasons Murdoch was so pro brexit

I still don't see why they can't just copy our 'Tribunal of Enquiry' model - much better results all round.

Watching Fox fake news in the U.S...Now that's what you call "Deep state" when a guy with more makeup than a drag queen is the intelligence advisor to the POTUS.

Pathetic.

Right. Murdoch and his plucky band of rebels will continue the good fight.

The EU Commission might as well make the most of the short time it's got left to trample over Britain. It's been served its walking papers and nobody will be sorry to see it go.

Not any more, apparently.

Maybe someone told Brussels Murdoch and his Acolytes were proficient at hacking private data and fake news even before the Russians got in on the act.

Note the identification of "Fox News" with "Britain".

Suddenly the Australian Republican Murdoch and the American Fox News are getting wrapped in the patriotic Union Jack.

All the fascists just flock together eventually.

Funny. I could have sworn a few people in the UK voted to remain!

The EU raid occurred in Britain, which will be out of its jurisdiction soon.

How many people in Britain will rejoice at Murdoch being given even more scope to exploit them by a supine British government?
