Google News launches fact check label - BBC News
I'm sure in no time facebook timelines will be filled with angry conservative posts about how Google is trying to force facts on them. The liberal bias of Google is out to get HeatStreet and Breitbart just because they lie.Fact check will appear with other news organisations in Google News and will, Google says, "shine a light on its efforts to divide fact from fiction".
Richard Gingras, Google's head of news, added it will "help readers find fact checking in large news stories".
He said sites which already have a fact checking service can apply to be included to appear in search results.
"You'll see the tagged articles in the expanded story box on news.google.com and in the Google News & Weather iOS and Android apps, starting with the US and the UK," he added in a blogpost.
