So who are the major shareholders of News Corp?

Just reading an article that says:

"The Church of England's investment arm said it would sell nearly £4 million ($5.9 million) of shares in News Corp if it failed to hold "senior managers" to account. The church's ethical investment advisory group has told News International the paper had acted in a way that was "utterly reprehensible and unethical" and that its closure was not a sufficient response."

So closure of NoTW isn't sufficient response for CoE but neither are they prepared to sell their shares? Is that a sufficient response?

Anyone know of any other major shareholders?

You can get information on the shareholders because its a publicly listed company. This is an extract from their latest annual report:

However who the shareholders listed actually are, I have no idea! I would assume the largest shareholder is a Murdoch family company?

If it has an 'ethical investment advisory group' I'd like to know why the heck the CofE had £4 million worth of shares in News Corp in the first place.
