    The antidote to Trump and Pravda trolls.

    Google introduces fact checking feature intended to help people see whether news is actually true

    Internet search giant Google has introduced a new fact-checking feature in its news section to allow readers to determine whether or not a story is true.

    Through an algorithmic process from schema.org known as ClaimReview, live stories will be linked to fact checking articles and websites. This will allow readers to quickly validate or debunk stories they read online.

    Related fact-checking stories will appear onscreen underneath the main headline. The example Google uses shows a headline over passport checks for pregnant women, with a link to Full Fact’s analysis of the issue.

    Readers will be able to see if stories are fake or if claims in the headline are false or being exaggerated.

    This is great--BUT only if the consumer of the news is not fact-averse. What we're seeing from Trump's alt-right/Breibart supporters is that they live in their own alternate reality and are voracious consumers of fiction. Thus, more than likely they will not lift a finger to vet or verify the Breitbart-manufactured news that they're getting.

    Here's the thing, these guys lied (Bill), mischaracterized (Obama), and exaggerated (Hillary). And yet, combined, they're a breathy, warm, wet whisper in the wind to the epic shitnado of your candidate. Enjoy the next four years in your bunker.

    The republican candidate, Donald Trump is far more trustworthy and far more qualified than that career criminal/pathological lying whore that the corrupt, incompetent democratic party has foisted onto the American voters when they had far better and more electable candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley.

    Anyone who has a mother, sister, daughter, or wife that he/she truly cares about cannot vote for this human stain.
