“Mr. Murdoch is a champion of journalism — and a staunch advocate for the news industry. We need a digital ecosystem that provides a viable economic return to publishers, and we don’t have that today. A carriage fee would be one clear way to bring more economic balance to the system. Quality journalism is critical to our civil society, and Google and Facebook have a responsibility to make sure that their dominant platforms help to ensure that it has a future.”
