London (CNN) -- Global media tycoon Rupert Murdoch is not a "fit and proper person" to run a major international company, British lawmakers investigating phone hacking at his tabloid the News of the World reported Tuesday.

The ruling could prompt British regulators to force him to sell his controlling stake in British Sky Broadcasting, a significant part of his media empire.

A fine example of the state trying to control the media. Murdoch doesn't buy into their world view so they try to force him out. Can't have anything counter to the old BBC now can we.
