    I know there is .press but with all those weird new TLDs, I was wondering why there is no .news yet...

    .news is on it's way.

    It will be going live on July 15th and I think pre-registrations are happening now.

    I don't want to digress from the original question, but I wonder, will these new LTDs will ever become valuable ?
    I don't see why bbc.com would ever chose to replace it with bbc.news

    In the shadows.
    I think it's more that ICANN is a big greedy pig and are just looking for more revenue, just look at the .sucks fiasco. They're basically profiting from extortion, and they don't care.

    They can probably create a hype around these TLDs but in now way people will get use to having 35 different TLDs for a single brand and it's branches.
