OpenAI gets permission to pull content from WSJ and other News Corp vessels

Published on

OpenAI announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with Manhattan-based Media News Corp. to bring news content to various products, including ChatGPT. The company said it “has permission to display content from News Corp mastheads in response to user questions and to improve its products.”

The News Corp umbrella includes major publications such as The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch,You New York Post, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun and The Daily Telegraph. As part of the deal, OpenAI will gain access to current and archived content from News Corp publications. However, it will not be given access to content for other News Corp-owned businesses.

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said in a Disclaimer:

Our partnership with News Corp is a proud moment for journalism and technology. We greatly value News Corp’s history as a leader in reporting breaking news around the world, and are excited to improve our users’ access to its quality reporting. Together, we are laying the foundation for a future where artificial intelligence respects, enhances and upholds the standards of world-class journalism.

The company did not specify whether access to the news content will be part of the paid version of ChatGPT or will be available to all chatbot users. Speaking of which, OpenAI launched the new GPT-4o model earlier this month with different input modes such as text, voice and images.

The latest development comes days after OpenAI announced a deal with social news aggregator Reddit, allowing maker ChatGPT to pull content from Reddit posts. Last month, OpenAI also signed a deal with the Financial Times business news channel to enhance ChatGPT with attributed content. However, the company was in hot water after its AI voice named ‘Sky’ was believed to resemble Scarlett Johansson.

OpenAI joined hands with more than a dozen tech companies this week to address concerns around AI safety and transparency. This came after reports of the disbandment of its formation team and the departure of two important people: Ilya Sutzkaber and Jan Leika.
