Murdoch: “Never Mind” [9:22 am]

Wall St. Journal to Continue Its Charges for Web Content

For months, Mr. Murdoch, who took control of the paper in December, has vacillated publicly over whether to maintain its subscription firewall. But officials at his company, News Corporation, say that this time, a decision has actually been made to keep it — for now, at least.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Mr. Murdoch said that the pages on WSJ.com “giving the greatest insights, that will still be a subscription service,” according to Reuters.

People at News Corporation who have been briefed on the matter confirmed that the policy had been settled, in general terms.

Well, in general terms, I’m sure lots of things can be said. The real question is what, specifically, is going to happen, and that seems to be up in the air still.
