Tuesday 22 August, 2017
Google Australia's managing director Jason Pellegrino told the Senate Committee into Public Interest Journalism today that Google is helping news publishers by driving traffic to their sites and by sharing revenue with them.

"People can give us notice of problematic content and we will act on it," he said.
