World News Report:
Internet search giant Google has introduced a new fact-checking feature in its new section to allow readers to determine whether or not a story is true.
“In the seven years since we started labeling types of articles in Google News (e.g., In-Depth, Opinion, Wikipedia), we’ve heard that many readers enjoy having easy access to a diverse range of content types,” the company said in an announcement.
“Today, we’re adding another new tag, “Fact check,” to help readers find fact checking in large news stories.”
Through an algorithmic process from schema.org known as ClaimReview, live stories will be linked to fact checking articles and websites. This will allow readers to quickly validate or debunk stories they read online.
Related fact-checking stories will appear onscreen underneath the main headline.
I would tout this as the end of the Donald Trump campaign if I did not know that his supporters will view this with distrust and believe that any "fact" which Google calls into question must be true due to Google's liberal bias.
However for those of us who actually want to know the truth about the news, this will be an invaluable asset.
And it will be quite helpful during those torturous holiday meals with the conservative uncle who believes every bullshit claim that drops from the mouth of a Fox News host.
