News Corporation’s co-chairman Lachlan Murdoch has stressed the importance of investing in journalism for the global media group. He also warned that many news websites merely copy other publishers’ stories rather than producing their own content, and digital search platforms should recognise this and give prominence to companies that invest in journalism. Murdoch also said News Corp will be a growth business after selling the bulk of its entertainment assets to Disney.
