News Ltd Australia thinks about free

In a radio talkshow about “Future of mass quality journalism” on Australian radio station ABC, Campbell Reid, former editor of The Australian, and editorial director at News Limited said that the Murdoch newspaper might be free in the near future:

In five years time, newspapers will be significantly altered by the financial pressure of the changing forces in advertising, and some of them will look different, feel different, be thinner, smaller, fatter, wider, come out on different days, be at a different price, potentially be free, but the best ones of them will have at the core of their success — and it will be an enduring success — public trust journalism.
