Senior executives at Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox corporation are alleged to have agreed for millions of dollars in bribes to be paid to South American soccer officials to secure major broadcast deals, according to US prosecution documents unmasked by sworn testimony.

Didn't Disney just buy that problem and all of it's civil liability?

Murdoch retains control of Fox Sports 1 and a couple of others. There are quite a few other Fox sports networks, so Disney might well have bought the liability. These are things that lawyers work out. They are not for us mortals to understand.

Fox News and a couple of others are spun off into an independent company. Murdoch retains control. Don't expect the content to get any better. They have a niche audience, and they know what that audience wants to see.

And so the Fox brand winds up like MGM. A piece here, a piece there, some use the name, some don't.
