Rupert Murdoch is still hinting at a Google blockade


As I've written

, it's all but inconceivable that News Corp. (NWS) will block Google (GOOG) from indexing the stories produced by its various online news outlets, but try telling Rupert Murdoch that. In an interview on his own Fox Business Network Tuesday, the owner of The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post continued to hint that he's willing to resort to the nuclear option unless Google starts cutting publishers in on the billions it's making off their content.

"They have devised a brilliant search engine that scrapes all the material published in the world, and on the back of that they sell search, but they don't pay for the raw material," said Murdoch. "We have to do something about that."
