Denver and Dallas papers may block Google

Publishers of both the Denver Post and the Dallas Morning News may pull some of their stories from Google’s news site, in a move that would emulate Rupert Murdoch and News Corp which is considering blocking Google’s search engine from displaying its news articles and is talking to Microsoft about displaying stories on its Bing site.
MediaNews Group Inc., the Post’s publisher, will block Google News when it starts charging readers in Pennsylvania and California for online content next year. It is also reported that the owner of the Dallas Morning News may introduce online subscription fees and also block Google.
