As TechCrunch reports, "OpenAI has inked a deal with the news publisher Axel Springer to pay for articles on which OpenAI will train future AI models." This is the model for funding (hopefully open access) media in the future. The AI company needs a source of knowably reliable data (this is where the open access would come in). The publisher (hopefully) produces that data in the form of news coverage (and later: informative writing of all kinds). Of course, the AI company may want to be more particular about its sources; I wouldn't exactly consider Business Insider to be particularly reliable.
