Apparently, Rupert Murdoch has been bemoaning free access to news online. Reuters has reported him saying "People reading news for free on the Web, that's got to change.... The question is, should we be allowing Google to steal all our copyright... not steal, but take. Not just them but Yahoo."
Good luck with that pay fior news model. It's been tried before and it eventually failed. I doubt it would work again unless there was some sort of cartel in the global news industry. Even then it won't stop blogs reporting on what has been reported.
