If you’ve needed one more reason for choosing other Internet search engine than the ubiquitous Google, well, this is it: the tech giant will start displaying “fact checking” labels to show its users if the respective piece of news is true or false.
This move is claimed to be focused on combating “fake news”, with the Alphabet company (Google’s parent) joining The Zukk’s Facebook in their crack on free speech which is disguised under the pretext of helping curbing the spread of fake news/misinformation in their digital ghettos.
Google will soon start displaying the infamous fact check label every time you’re performing an internet search. The labels will highlight the “Big Brother Approved/Fact Checked Information” that has been vetted by God knows whom and deemed to be true or false, because the average internet user is too stupid to make up his own mind.
This is what big corporation actually think about their users, let that sink in real good folks. Google’s Truth Ministry kommissars now claim that given the huge amount of information available on the internet, the people going online are confronted with overwhelming amounts of data, hence they’re incapable of discerning truth from fiction. Enter Google’s fact checkers to save the day.
The thing is, Google will not perform the fact checking thingy, but it will rely on “State Approved/Big Brother compatible” fact checkers (read some guys you’ve never heard of, probably hard lefties/social justice warriors) or “trusted” publishers, because you know, the mainstream media never told a lie.
