In my mind what makes the "Murdoch media" dangerous is the way politicians have allowed an open door policy to Rupert Murdoch. Quite why you would entertain an 80 year old, in your new home, the morning after you become Prime Minister is beyond me, unless they happened to be in a "confused state" or owned the lions share of British media (Murdoch was seen leaving by the back door of No.10).
Of course Cameron was not the first, to bend over for Murdoch, hopefully he will be the last, Tony Blair, was happy to bask in the light of the Sun's endorsement, which might explain why Labour did nothing to curb Murdoch's dominance of the UK media, I cannot understand how for instance Sky which Murdoch is already a significant shareholder is able to hold what is effectively a monopoly of subscription based broadcast media in much of the country.
Still for enlightenment I strongly advise you read this from the Mail, if you need convincing that Murdoch is unfit to own any more of the countries media, consider the cavalier manner in which the News of the World, was closed, two hundred plus staff thrown to the wolves and a British institution gone, for what, a move that was meant to convince us, that senior management know nothing and had any moral scruples.
Finally every day seems to reveal more, last week in Parliament much was disclosed concerning the involvement of James Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks and what they knew, as I see it, the only reason Rebekah has her job still, is because when she goes who will be next, I'm old enough to remember Watergate still that only involved a president, a press baron is tougher because they can manipulate public opinion unless of course they start closing down their own papers. Hopefully some time soon when Murdoch rings a politician they'll be in a position to tell him to F*** Off!
PS That's my personal view, and I'd add this, Murdoch had to become a US citizen, in order to acquire a large share of American media, can someone tell me why foreigners are allowed such large sway in this country. Murdoch is still smiling at the moment but just how long does he think the establishment are going to allow him power since the public have finally woken up.
