Google commits $300m to help news publishers

Google is stepping up efforts to improve relations with news publishers with a $300m commitment that includes support for subscriptions and efforts to fight fake news.

The launch of the Google News Initiative comes as Google and Facebook face criticism for their emergence as gatekeepers for information, their dominance of the digital advertising market and their role in the proliferation of false and misleading stories online in the wake of the 2016 US presidential election and UK Brexit vote.

The project includes a subscription sales process, promotion of “authoritative” news sources in search results and efforts to fight false and misleading information during elections and breaking news events.
