NewsMediaWorks CEO Peter Miller has welcomed a proposal by Rupert Murdoch for Facebook to pay a "carriage fee" for republishing media content such as newspaper articles. Miller is confident that members of NewsMediaWorks, which include major media companies, will also support the proposal. Murdoch says carriage fees would recognise the value of quality news content to Facebook while having little impact on its profits. Murdoch adds that Facebook and Google must do more to ensure that the selection of news stories that appear on their websites is politically impartial.
