The other way for Gooface to fight this:

Set up their own news services that create original content instead of paraphrasing other peoples'. It will cost money but they can afford it and they get to pay themselves instead of others for news. The model has worked elsewhere: Pixar decided creating their own films was a more reliable business than hoping to be hired by others. The streaming video services worked out that creating their own content was a better option than relying licenses from existing rights holders. As a bonus Gooface would get to decide what is and isn't news and from what angle to present the news they select. They seriously need to hire some competent staff in their "Let's be even more evil" departments.
