Newspapers to charge for content
Murdoch announces online news fee
Rupert Murdoch, owner of global media company News Corporation, has said he plans to charge users to access all news websites by summer, 2010.
The media tycoon said the company would begin asking users to pay for content on websites such as the Times, the Sun and the News of the World.
“Quality journalism is not cheap,” he said. “The digital revolution has opened many new and inexpensive distribution channels but it has not made content free. We intend to charge for all our news websites.”
