Google News Initiative announced to fight fake news and support journalism

Shopping with Google will be that bit easier
As the world of journalism has moved online, fewer people have been consuming print media and more are turning towards websites for good reporting that breaks the news immediately rather than in the next print issue. Our shared mission also reflects shared business interests. This helps publishers build the case for why their content is credible.
Schindler explains that past year Google paid $12.6 billion to partners, driving 10 billion clicks a month to publishers' websites for free. Supported by a $3 million Google.org investment, MediaWise is a media literacy project created to help millions of young people in the US discern fact from fiction online, through classroom education and video - with a little help from several teen-favorite YouTube creators.
Google is also launching a feature called Subscribe with Google, described as "a way for people to easily subscribe to various news outlets, helping publishers engage readers across Google and the Web".
We invested a lot time and energy in these collaborations. In the blog post, Target's Chief Information and Digital Officer Mike McNamara said its customers are reacting positively to being able to use a voice interface to make purchases.
Google's Jim Albrecht, the product management director, announced the initiative in a blog post Tuesday.
Subscribe With Google is a linchpin in that second objective to foster sustainable business models for publishers. "The rapid evolution of technology is challenging all institutions, including the news industry, to keep pace", he said. Separately, Google has announced an official partnership with MediaWise - an educational US-based organisation which trains young consumers in how to identify fake news.
To further expand its commitment to the industry, Google is launching a new Subscribe with Google program today. It is partnering with publishers to provide a simpler way to offersubscription content that's blocked behind a paywall.
"Google has been the most responsive of the major platforms in terms of listening, trying to understand what we need, and changing their business rules", Thompson said.
Google's ongoing bids to stifle fake news, which have also included demoting unverified sources in its "Top News" section, follow on from findings in the 2018 Edelman Trust Barometer.
Also of note: Google says it's working with the national academies of sciences, education, and medicine, The New York Times, and New York hospital and research center Memorial Sloan Kettering, to surface fact-checks for health-related results.
The lab's launch emerges as the fight against fake news reaches boiling point following allegations that millions of Facebook users had their data harvested to influence the U.S. presidential election.
