Google may lose WSJ, other News Corp. sites | Media Maverick - CNET News

I guess somebody needs to inform him that wsj.com already charges.  He’d have to pay me – a lot -- to pay attention to Fox News and some of the company’s other content…

Rupert Murdoch, the media tycoon who has long accused Google of ripping off content from his newspapers, says his sites may soon disappear from the search engine's listings.

Murdoch is chairman of News Corp., the newspaper, TV, and Internet empire that includes The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, 20th Century Fox, Fox News, and Hulu. He made the comments in an interview late last week with Sky News Australia. (See video below.)

After Murdoch accused Google, Microsoft, and others of "stealing" his company's content, he was asked why he just doesn't pull his Web sites from Google's search results.

"I think we will," Murdoch responded. "But that's when we start charging."
