Posted by: Bruce Nussbaum on January 24, 2008

Rubert Murdoch told an audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday that he would not free the entire online Wall Street Journal as expected but would keep a portion of it closed for subscribers. At a session on Rebuilding the American Brand: Suggestions for the Future American President, Murdoch said he would free “the commodity information you can get elsewhere” but keep original, proprietary stories behind a wall and charge for it.

This is big news for all the media folks waiting for Murdoch to open the now closed online Journal. Murdoch surprises again.
