Google Plus One and news media?

I saw a capture of what appears to be Google’s new social media platform
on TechCrunch.

It seems to integrate sharing into all the Google network. What I found
interesting (alarming?) was the sharing functionality around news
content given in this example here

To what extent will Google intergrate social sharing around content? It
will be interesting to see how this develops. Ultimately Facebook and
Google will want to become your portal to the web similar to Yahoo!
Where does that leave the news portals?

How will this dance play out?
