There is growing support in Australia and abroad for Rupert Murdoch’s proposal for digital companies such as Facebook and Google to pay for the news content that they redistribute. Nine Entertainment Company CEO Hugh Marks says the issue needs to be addressed urgently, adding that there are several other options that are worth considering. Murdoch’s proposal has also received a favourable response from NewsMediaWorks CEO Peter Miller, WPP CEO Sir Martin Sorrell and North America’s News Media Alliance.
