from the article:
“When Google launched its news site three years ago, it led to a certain amount of hand-wringing at Yahoo News, MSNBC and CNN. Unlike its competitors, which were forced to budget millions of dollars a year to license up-to-the-minute content and pay reporters and editors, Google had figured out a way to do it on the cheap.
As it turns out, however, Google has a problem that is nearly as complex as its algorithms. It can’t make money from Google News.”
