    If Google is just publishing headlines and directing traffic to news sites it seems like too much.

      The problem could be that people are just reading the headlines, ergo, not accounting views on the news sites.

      I don’t know how the situation looks in Canada, but here news are so undermined at this point that news sites have become gigantic clickbait farms.

        Yes, ads on traditional media websites are just cancerous, can’t stand to browse a traditional media site without an ad blocker. It can’t help their reputation to show such crap on their site.

        The real problem is that rather than buying ads in traditional media, advertisers are buying ads on Google and Facebook. They’re taking revenue away from traditional media.
