      Google partners with WordPress to save local media

      Over the past couple of decades, local media has been eclipsed by big tech platforms, as it struggled to keep up with changing consumer behaviours and emerging digital world. As a result many local newspapers with long histories have had to cut back on staff and reduce coverage. So, to solve the issue and save the local media outlets Google News initiative is now partnering with WordPress's parent company Automattic by investing $1.2 m in the development of a “fast, secure, low-cost publishing system.”
