Rupert Murdoch Plans To Block More Than Just Google

Posted: Updated:

As you might have heard, Rupert Murdoch, the Chairman and CEO of News Corp., stated in an interview with Sky News Australia that

He will remove stories from Google's search index as a way to encourage people to pay for content online.

News Corp. owns the Wall Street Journal, the Sun, and the Times, in addition to the Fox News Channel.

Now, you may think that cutting your content off to millions of potential customers is enough craziness for one day. But, in an exclusive interview, Murdoch explained that Google is only the beginning of News Corp.'s plans to further isolate themselves. Take a look.

UPDATE: It is now being reported that after his comments defending Glenn Beck's racism, Murdoch is also exploring ways of blocking all minorities from viewing his sites.
