Google pushes back on news code

Do news and media outlets already receive a benefit (a sufficient benefit) from having their content displayed and/or shared across other websites and platforms like Google and Facebook? Or should they be entitled to a monetary benefit paid by the platform? If Google or Facebook have to pay for content, do you expect to pay Google and Facebook to access that content as well?
