Murdoch suddenly cancels all of his appearances at Davos

Something it a foot. The News Corporation chairman, Rupert Murdoch, has suddenly cancelled all of his meetings at Davos this year, according to the FT.

Murdoch had been due to attend a panel on Jan. 28 with Vodafone Group CEO, Vittorio Colao, and Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The news comes a day after the 79 year old got the news that his bid for control of BSkyB would not be referred to the Competition Commission by Jeremy Hunt.

Bloomberg is also reporting the story citing two people familiar with the matter.
