Relax, people: Here's what Murdoch really said about charging for news


Jeez, is it really that slow a news week?

Sure, Rupert Murdoch made some news on News Corp.'s fiscal-year-end earnings call yesterday, declaring that the company will adopt pay models for all its news websites by this time next year, including the websites of Fox News, the Sun and News of the World.

But Murdoch certainly didn't say what a lot of people, including Newser's Michael Wolff and reporters for the Financial Times, seem to think he said: to wit, that all of the content on those sites will henceforth cost readers money to access.
