Just in time for a highly charged presidential election, Google News has introduced a new fact check feature to avoid confusion between fact and fiction. The feature will appear as a label among news search results, together with other established labels like opinion, local source and highly cited.
Technically, Google News connects fact-checking articles with news stories using so-called Claim Review process. The tech giant says it will include websites that meet the definition of a fact-checking service. Google announced its excitement about the growth of the Fact Check community and overall about its ability to divine fact from fiction and wisdom from spin.
In the meantime, Facebook has yet to deploy a similar feature, despite its critical role in the distribution of news. According to the recent independent research, Facebook was the primary source of news for people aged 18 to 24. However, after sacking their trending topics news team, Facebook found itself at the center of a storm when its algorithm started promoting fake news.
As for Google News, fact check labels can be seen in the expanded story box on its website, on the mobile apps, and roll out for users in the United States and the United Kingdom first. Industry experts point out that the timing of the new label is important, as it effectively contributes to the ongoing US presidential election, where, as you know, both sides have been accused of misrepresenting facts. Although Donald Trump incorrectly stated last week that the election would take place on 28 November, in fact it’s 8 November, which is quite near. One debate with the candidates is ahead.

|It's true, a lot of the the news online and from people/social media isn't backed up. Still better than main stream media who have been proven wrong(lies, etc) so many times before the internet. This fact check feature is gonna be total horse hockey... They will just try to tell us what to believe. Google has a bad rep anyway to begin with.|

|Currently, the best form of information is keeping an open/critical(ability to think for yourself) mind and gather what you can yourself from multiple sources. An open internet helps with that.|
|Google trying to tell everyone what is and isn't true... what morons will hand over their brain to it? Sad sad news.|
