Would the top 1k most visited sites take a cool $1mm each, plus a committment from MicroSoft or Yahoo to drive traffic through their search engines to more than make up for the lost Google Traffic.

Murdoch also accused Google of plagiarizing his company's motto, "Be Evil". 'Adding a "don't" doesn't make it original', he explained.
No, this is about the ads that Google places on its own pages next to search results. Rupert wants a cut on the revenue from those ads, because some of those ads appear next to content (search results) from Rupert's newspapers. Rupert's content makes Google's search engine more useful. He wants a cut of the action.
