With eerie timing, Google launched its new "fact check" feature right around two speeches yesterday and today where Obama slyly attacked conservative media as unreliable and untruthful and called for online censorship.
According to BBC, Google's new feature will discriminately select its own "fact check" articles and attach them to the top news headlines of a particular topic. See example below:
Google says it's doing this to "shine a light on its efforts to divide fact from fiction." In other words, they want to determine for you what is true and false on the internet.
But as has been clearly shown in this election cycle, fact checking is often biased and based on opinion mixed with facts, and Google has been regarded as a company that leans left. U.S. News & World Report even did a story a couple years ago showing just how incredible bias mainstream media fact checks are against Republicans.
