Google Expands Its Fact-Checking Feature to Search Results

Not just for news anymore

In October, Google introduced the fact check label for articles in Google news searches that fit its labeling recs. It was a small step in what would turn out to a protracted, multi-front battle–in advertising, education, social media–against fake news, one that still continues. This Friday, Google expanded its own fact-checking offerings by applying the label and more to Google searches, rather than merely Google news articles.
