Knewz helps News Corp gain profits
After a year of watching struggle of digital-only brands, News Corp has confirmed it is developing a news aggregation app and web site, provisionally branded Knewz. com. The app will reportedly link directly to the web sites of a wide range of news brands. News Corp won’t take a commission on the advertising revenue from those links and will share data with the publishers – by contrast with Google News, Facebook, and Apple News+. News Corp has said the service will offer a wide spectrum of news and views, from local, niche and national sources, without bent or bias.
