Nova NOT for sale: Lachlan Murdoch

Staff Writer

According to Lachlan Murdoch, Nova Entertainment is not for sale.

The Australian reported it has an internal email written by Murdoch that slammed media reports of a proposed sale.

The email allegedly said: “A small number of you may have read in the Financial Review this morning that I am selling Nova Entertainment Group.”

“As with much in that paper, nothing could be further from the truth.”

“I have no intention to sell Nova Entertainment. It irks me somewhat when Fairfax’s agenda affects all of you, my Nova colleagues.”

“It is very unfair to you, and you should be aware that sources in such stories that are unnamed and go just by “a media executive” or some similar pseudonym are almost always by definition a competitor of ours somewhere, with their own axes to grind and agendas to push.”

A report in the Australian Financial Review and Sydney Morning Herald claimed Murdoch was seeking $400 million for Nova.
