Just in time for the election Google introduces new fact checking feature. Looks like bad news for Breitbart and Alex Jones.

Courtesy of 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 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.

      @4:43 AM Take a look at your hero's history, troll. You must have your own poll, Trump is 1 point ahead in your poll of 1.

      “What was the evidence that Trump was a threat to press freedom?”

      she wanted to know. The evidence, delivered in a staff memo, was overwhelming. It made the case that Trump not only despises journalists — “scum,” he calls them, and “corrupt” — but also that he has no understanding or respect for the role they play in our democracy. He has repeatedly stated that he wants to change the laws that allow journalists to do their jobs.
      And so, after a board vote, CPJ’s unprecedented statement went public last week.

    How does that 'fact checking' by google work? I tried a couple of things, and no such 'f.c.' came up.

    Its like night and day. Fox news denies their viewers important news about 98% of the time. The Credit worthy and Major News stations report it! I watched fox news just to verify this claim. And as the actors on that network are very oddly odd they also deny important world, usa, and political news to their viewers intentionally. it is true!. The people watching fox news the "only" fair, balanced, trusted network.....
    are completely warped into fox nation of lies and deceit. The Grand Experiment of mind control. yep. We all know of people who are pawns in this oddly bigly yugely warped mental state of fox news mind games. indeed.

    The "trumpers" I know would probably say that google is "rigged". Furthermore they seem to think anything except a narrow range of Trump worship is "rigged".

    They hate Hillary Clinton because they hate her. There is no glimmer of attempting to evaluate the candidates. They HATE period, end of story.

    Oh absolutely between Fox News and Trump, the huddled masses have been taught to fear and distrust anything that comes from anyone, anywhere else. I got that certain Uncle who posts all the shit. I put up, snopes, etc. and I get in reply - I don't trust those - they are controlled by...are propaganda....its not real....

    OT?READ THIS:Jones responded to his rejection of HER advances with, “You men… I can get back at you, you’ll see.” *PENTHOUSE*
    “All the sudden these pictures surface and and then they dumped me like a hot potato,” Jones would later explain to Joe Conason. “I guess because I was dirty and this and that…”Coulter called news of a settlement “a fucking disaster!”
    “We were terrified that Jones would settle,” Coulter reportedly said. “It was contrary to our purpose of bringing down the president.”COULTER." “She bemoaned that Jones made a fool of herself in the media, because not only had she not been involved in writing her own complaint, she hadn’t bothered to read it when it was done.” (she’s just the trailer-park trash they said she was.” +(she’s just the trailer-park trash they said she was.”)
    " because of mismanagement of one of her legal defense funds, Jones owed thousands in taxes and penalties to the IRS.
    A year after the settlement, Jones was an unemployed, broke, divorced mother of two boys, and all her conservative friends had disappeared. So she agreed to pose for a tasteful spread in the very magazine that she had sued to stay out of, " Drumpf>, “Paula Jones is a loser.”

    This ne fact check will also be just in time for the new Trump TV.

  11. Anonymous11:58 AM

    An algorithm isn't going to fix this. Unless they have humans vetting the fact check articles they are linking to, the crazy right will just write "fact check" articles full of lies about Hillary Clinton and supporting the lies of Donald Trump. They'll figure out a way to get their articles to the top of the stack and be linked by google by their algorithm.

    (Russian hackers could be involved.)


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
