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.

  + stars: | 2020-12-31 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
(Reuters) - Tribune Publishing Co’s largest shareholder, Alden Global Capital, said on Thursday it had offered to take full control of the owner of the Chicago Tribune in a deal that values the company at $520.6 million. Alden, known for its hostile takeover bids of publishing companies, has a stake of 32% stake in Tribune. The hedge fund’s offer valued the newspaper chain at $14.25 per share, representing a premium of 11.4% to the company’s shares last closing price. The newspaper chain, owner of the New York Daily News and the Baltimore Sun, has seen a decline in revenue this year as the COVID-19 pandemic hammers the publishing industry. A study published last month found that print newspapers saw a decline in their overall consumer reach amid the health crisis.
