Google and Facebook accounted for 54% of U.S. digital advertising revenue in 2020, according to eMarketer, a market research company. Under the Facebook Journalism Project, for instance, Reuters received funding to develop a digital media training course for journalists. Both Facebook and Google have made contributions to the news industry apart from the $600 million. Both Facebook and Google say publishers benefit just from using their platforms, which deliver traffic that helps drive advertising revenue and subscriptions. The Seattle Times publisher said his paper has participated in programs backed by Google and Facebook.

The move comes after a weekend of negotiations with the government over its proposed media code. The new amendments have "satisfied" Facebook, according to the company executive Campbell Brown. While Google ultimately decided to preemptively negotiate deals with major Australian publishers, Facebook blocked all news content for its Australian users and all content from Australian news publishers for users worldwide on Wednesday. During a news conference Saturday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison joked that Facebook had "tentatively friended us again." In a statement released Monday evening, Facebook said it was "satisfied" with the agreement it reached with the Australian government.
