Google has recently announced that they will be “fact checking,” information that appears in their search engine.
It’s not like this could go horribly wrong, right? It isn’t like China or North Korea or Big Brother do these things, right? Don’t worry guys—it’s not 1984 at all, says Google CEO Eric Schmidt.
The Guardian reports:
“Google is to start displaying fact-checking labels in its search results to highlight news and information that has been vetted and show whether it is considered to be true or false, as part of its efforts to help combat the spread of misinformation and fake news.”
“The fact-checking feature, which was first introduced to Google News in the UK and US in October, will now be displayed as an information box in general search results as well as news search results globally.”
“The small snippets display information about the claim made by a particular page or site and who made the claim, as well as the results of fact checking on the highlighted claim. The fact checks are not performed by Google, but by named trusted publishers and fact-checkers using an open system to mark claims as having been checked.”
Hmm—isn’t it funny that NOBODY cared about “fake news,” until alternative media helped Trump win the election?
This is just another desperate attempt at censorship. The mainstream media KNOWS that they’re failing, and they’re probably in cahoots with Google. The Deep State and powers that be, do NOT want freedom of thought! They want everything controlled, so that we only know what they want us to know.
The Guardian continues:
“The expansion comes in the wake of heavy criticism of US technology firms for their inaction over the spread of misinformation and fake news, particularly around high-profile topics such as the US election. The UK government recently urged US firms, including Google, Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft, to do more to police their platforms and remove illegal and extremist content.”
“German chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet has also backed legislation that could lead to fines of up to €50m if social networks refuse to remove illegal content and don’t give users an effective way to report fake news and hate speech.”
In addition to Google’s shaky policy, which is an obvious grab for power, CEO Eric Schmidt is also a very staunch Hillary supporter. He was photographed at Hillary’s rally with a special staff badge, too:W

We all know that anyone who supports a woman as corrupt as Hillary is obviously either an idiot, or just as corrupt themselves…and I don’t think the CEO of the world’s largest data company is an idiot.
Truth Feed reports:
“It’s a well known fact that the VAST majority of Silicon Valley , where Google is headquartered is liberal.”
“Would you really trust them to be arbiter of truth and politically neutral?”
“While we are against truly FAKE news, political commentary is often two people seeing the same glass – one seeing it half full, one seeing it half empty.”
“The truth can be highly subjective.”
“Is this being done in an effort to try to help Angela Merkel?”
They bring up an incredibly good point. Google is based in California, which is the most liberal state in the entire USA—can we really trust them to be the guardians of our information?
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m switching over to Duck Duck Go. They don’t collect information, and donate money every year to support freedom of speech. Be sure to share this article, and get the truth out there before it’s too late!
