Google’s approach to combatting fake news divides pretty cleanly between overt tactics and less obvious ways. Today’s announcement falls into the latter camp. now when you search for a publication by name, cards can populate with all types of data on the publication or publisher’s history. “These additions give key items of information to assist you to understand the tone, experience, and history of the publisher,” the weblog post reads.
It’s a subtle way to inform people but you’ve to search for the publication within the 1st place. Facebook began doing something similar last month but would append a shared newspaper article with a small, clickable “i” button for more info. The chance of someone doing an extra search once they read an article, regarding the publication that ran it, is probably pretty low, though.
