More bad press for Google

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-20018221

"Newspapers accounting for 90% of the circulation in Brazil have abandoned Google News. Brazil's National Association of Newspapers says all 154 members had followed its recommendation to ban the search engine aggregator from using their content. The papers say Google News refused to pay for content and was driving traffic away from their websites." (italics mine).

Meanwhile, Google claim that the Google News feature channels clicks to newspaper sites!
