BSkyB shareholders in James Murdoch protest vote
James Murdoch has been re-elected BSkyB chairman, but a fifth of shareholders voted against his reappointment.
A number of key shareholders voted against him at the firm's annual general meeting (AGM), as they would like a fully independent chairman rather than an executive of News Corp.
News Corp owns 39% of BSkyB as well as being the parent of News International (NI), also chaired by Mr Murdoch.
News International owns the News of the World, which closed over phone hacking.
