Britain clears Fox bid for Sky if it sells Sky News

LONDON - Britain cleared Rupert Murdoch's bid to buy Sky on Tuesday so long as Sky News is sold, paving the way for the mogul's Twenty-First Century Fox to go head-to-head with rival Comcast Corp for the European pay-TV group.
Addressing Comcast's bid for Sky, Culture Secretary Matt Hancock said he would not intervene in the bid.
