Rupert makes it official

The news from Australia this morning: News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch told shareholders that he intends to remove the subscriber wall from WSJ.com, one of the only successful subscription news sites in the world.

His bet: the increased ad revenue that comes along with increased visitors will pay off.

"We are studying it and we expect to make that free, and instead of having one million (subscribers), having at least 10 million-15 million in every corner of the earth," Murdoch told the AP.

Think he's right?

Which site would you like to see make the move next?
