I agree with several of your points. Especially the design and interface problem of the traditional news should be solved.

For the contents, I do feel there is still a big gap for providing non biased, high qualities articles from the sources for this young generation. Because most readers do not have patient to read a full 3 mins article, there must be a news length to fit users lifestyle.
