Google announced today that it will flag fact-checking articles in Google News. A search for news about Donald Trump, for example, yields the following results:
The links tagged as "fact checks" are from websites that apply a corresponding label to their code, ClaimReview markup. Google will also flag fact-checking content from "sites that follow the commonly accepted criteria for fact checks," though these too will need to use the ClaimReview markup. This is currently in use by fewer than 10 domains. A Google spokesperson wouldn't confirm the full list of websites; searches for the moment yield results from PolitiFact and Full Fact.
