Google News Initiative: Impact Report 2020
Business models for news have been evolving for more than a century, and the Internet has changed the way people consume news.
Alongside other companies, governments, and civic societies, we want to play our part by helping journalism in the 21st century not just survive, but thrive.
Building on nearly two decades of work and partnering with the news industry, in 2018 we launched the Google News Initiative to help centralize and scale our efforts across the company to help build a stronger future for news.
To date, the Google News Initiative has supported 6,250+ news partners in 118 countries through $189 million in global funding.
