The internet as a whole rather than Google specifically has hurt the business model of traditional media companies, according to the technology giant’s vice-president of news, Richard Gingras. He says the Google News Initiative demonstrates the company’s commitment to publishers and quality journalism. Gingras adds that Google’s core businesses of web search and advertising technology are highly dependent on the internet’s "ecosystem" continuing to feature quality content.
