The bleating by the hapless losers in last presidential election had gotten noticed at Google. Google is now in the “quality journalism” business.
To kiss and make-up with 2016’s sore losers, Google plans to invest $300 million in the new Google News Initiative.
The Google News Initiative will “elevate and strengthen quality journalism; evolve business models to drive sustainable growth; and empower news organizations through technological innovation.”
Sure it will.
According to the fake news media, misinformation has been a persistent thorn in its side. The “misinformation” is a big problem because it routinely debunks false narratives like the ones claiming Russia-linked accounts used Google’s advertising network to interfere with the 2016 election.
What is really behind all this is the fake news media’s falling behind Google and Facebook for advertising dollars. Nothing more.
