Google is shutting down its "Fact Checking" feature, the one that targeted conservative news outlets and ignored liberal ones.


Google says it is discontinuing its fact-check feature because it proved to be too faulty for public use, directly attributing the decision to an investigation by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The company has no date set for when it will return, if ever.

“We launched the reviewed claims feature at the end of last year as an experiment with the aim of helping people quickly learn more about news publications,” a spokeswoman for Google told TheDCNF, while also adding that TheDCNF was the catalyst for the recent move. “We said previously that we encountered challenges in our systems that maps fact checks to publishers, and on further examination it’s clear that we are unable to deliver the quality we’d like for users.”

Now, are they shutting down their "fact checking" feature, or are they "shutting down" their "fact checking" feature?

How do we know that it still won't be running in the background?

Google has been implementing some weird stuff over the past 12 months. Good to see them roll back at least one.
