It's Good News Week

Read in the Evening Standard (which is FREE)  that Murdoch and son want to charge for their news content on the internet - think the idea is doomed do you?

The BBC has today said it has "no intention" of charging for online news, in a declaration that is unlikely to please James Murdoch and his father Rupert as they prepare to start charging for News Corporation content on the internet.

Sir Michael Lyons, the BBC Trust chairman, said the corporation has "no intention of diluting BBC commitment to universal access to free news online" as he outlined the areas director general Mark Thompson's ongoing strategic review will cover. (Source The Guardian)
