"The federal government is talking tough about making Google and
Facebook pay Australian news businesses for linking to, or featuring,
these publishers’ content."
"But the code is unlikely to do much to fix the crisis faced by
journalism in the internet age. It isn’t even a band-aid on the problem.
The traditional commercial news business model is broken beyond repair.
If the government wants to save the social benefit of public-interest
journalism, it must look elsewhere."
