Murdoch asking for Trouble!

Post by kellybgood » Mon Nov 23, 2009 9:19 pm

It isn't quite clear what Rupert Murdoch is currently thinking because its almost clear that he isn't at all.

Rupert Murdoch has spent months complaining that Google is ruining the newspaper business. But, his proposal is a gamble, and one that could hurt News Corp instead of helping it.

Murdoch is considering removing News Corp's news from Google's Web search results, and is talking to Microsoft Corp about listing the stories with its Bing search engine instead. Microsoft would pay for the privilege, sources have told Reuters, but it was not clear how much.

Seems to me that this is just asking for trouble and this could severely backfire on News Corp.
