Google News is not a marketing service, and we consider articles that employ these types of promotional tactics to be in violation of our quality guidelines.
Please remember that like Google search, Google News takes action against sites that violate our quality guidelines. Engagement in deceptive or promotional tactics such as those described above may result in the removal of articles, or even the entire publication, from Google News.
If a site mixes news content with affiliate, promotional, advertorial, or marketing materials (for your company or another party), we strongly recommend that you separate non-news content on a different host or directory, block it from being crawled with robots.txt, or create a Google News Sitemap for your news articles only. Otherwise, if we learn of promotional content mixed with news content, we may exclude your entire publication from Google News.Google Says, Google News Is Not A Marketing Service [googlenewsblog.blogspot.co.uk]
It would be nice if Google would lay down some guidelines and examples of what they DO want to see instead of vague language about what they will ban you for
