Murdoch delays charging for content online

Murdoch had previously outlined plans to erect pay walls around his vast newspaper empire by the end of News Corp’s current fiscal year in June but he indicated that was now unlikely.

“We are working all very, very hard at this but I wouldn’t promise that we’re going to meet that date,” he told reporters in a conference call after releasing News Corp’s first-quarter results.

Asked what was causing the delay, he said: “Everything.”
