Murdoch’s Pay Walls Plans Will Have to Wait.

Half an year ago the worlds most popular media mogule- Rupert Murdoch (News Corp.) announced  his withdrawal from free content, by introducing pay walls for his online editions by the end of News Corp’s financial year (June 2010).

Last night he admitted that his plans might not make the deadline but refused to explain why. A fact that leaves free space for speculations.

Media analysts like Jeff Jarvis attribute this delay to Murdoch’s fear of being left stranded by the other media companies. Until now Guardian has clearly refused to join  Murdoch’s plans and charge for content.If more publishing house follow that example,  the only effect of Murdoch’s papers charging online would be to clear the path for competitors.
