Desmond’s Five and Murdoch’s Sky Fight For Viewers With Football, Films And Fucking

by | 24th, July 2010

Channel 5 Desmonds Five and Murdochs Sky Fight For Viewers With Football, Films And FuckingTHE front page of the Daily Express leads with news that Richard Desmond has bought Channel 5:

“Bright new era as Daily Express boss buys Channel 5 TV”

Not all of Desmond’s business dealings make it onto the front page of the Express. There is little news of his porn TV shows. But, then, they are currently on satellite telly. Maybe if they move to FIVE, the wank rooms will become bigger news?

Will Five be rebranded as Five Fingers with its headline magazine show “The Knuckle Shuffle“?

Not that Desmond should be alone in promoting his business interests in his own throbbing organs. Rupert’s Murdoch’s Sun champions Avatar as news, the film his Twentieth Century Fox studio made.

Murdoch also owns Sky TV, where his son James Murdoch presides over the market leader in pay-pornography.

And how does Sky report on Desmond’s purchase? Why:

New Channel Five ‘Will Not Go Downmarket’

But will Sky follow the story of Five, a station built on “films, football and fucking“? Or is already ahead of the game?
