Here is the full text of Rupert Murdoch’s speech to the American Society of News Editors. Below are some further quotes from the speech:
At the same time, we may want to experiment with the concept of using bloggers to supplement our daily coverage of news on the net.
And with the growing proliferation of broadband, the emphasis online is shifting from text only to text with video.
While the technology still develops in this area, we today face the more immediate challenge of transforming our offline classified businesses into online marketplaces. And not just for the traditional cars, jobs and real estate categories. What weâ€™re learning is digital natives increasingly are finding their dates, their plumbers and their restaurants online.
