Rupert Murdoch: Jeremy Hunt 'fairer' than Vince Cable

Rupert Murdoch thought his bid to take over BSkyB shares would have a "fairer" hearing when Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt took over responsibility for ruling on it.

But Mr Murdoch has denied having much involvement with Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who took over the task, in an appearance at the Leveson Inquiry.

Business Secretary Vince Cable was stripped of any role concerning the takeover bid, having been secretly recorded saying he had "declared war on Mr Murdoch".

And the culture secretary is under attack by Labour, who say he sided with the Murdochs.
