From AdAge: Publishers weigh in on Apple’s terms in new subscription service

Publishers weigh in on Apple's terms in new subscription service: 'a shitty deal'

This is just another attempt to create a ‘Spotify for news,’ and as News Media Alliance CEO David Chavern has said, this is not the answer. In my opinion this is just one more way for a tech company to dip into the pockets of publishers.
