Under the terms of the deal, Murdoch retains ownership of Fox Broadcasting, Fox News, and a few others. What Disney bought was essentially the movie and sports division.

I believe they didn't get the News or Sports divisions. Everything else was/is/being acquired. I believe it was to keep the government from getting involved, since if Disney got the Sports branch, there would be no competition in that realm. (Disney owns ESPN)
