For example: "the earth is round" is a well know fact, and it describes the observed phenomena of the spherical nature of the Earth, but it is a statement, not the truth itself. The Truth is the Earth and it's shape, which exists independent of this statement of fact. Facts, like Scientific Knowledge is dynamic, it is constantly being purified (ideally) by new observations, which either call into question accepted facts or prove them to be valid given new data. Facts always have relative certainty, because the totality of available observations to verify them is incomplete - no one is omniscient, except for God/the Creator/the Spirit if the Universe.
This simple mechanic is completely missed by most people, as they mistake facts for truth, opinions for facts and propaganda as evidence. A truth, like a fact, is an idea in someone's mind, which accurately reflects reality. What makes something true is not who is saying it (i.e. an expert) or that it comes from a peer reviewed source. What makes something true is that the theorem or logical argument which describes the observed phenomena is accurate, and it can stand on it's own. The Pope declared the world was flat, but this did not make it true. Authorizing is an attempt to create truth by fiat: "it is true because I say so." But this is illusory, as all authority ultimately is.
On Earth there is a thought form or MEME within the consciousness of humanity, that truth comes from authorities, and humanity is too stupid or incompetent to see reality for themselves. Herein lies the key to discovering truth, and accumulating facts which we ourselves have come to understand. Critical thinking, using a rational process of logic by testing a theory to see if it is valid, determines a facts veracity; it's truthfulness.
Google's attempt to rank alternative media on it's basis of trustworthiness (how factual it is) is an attempt to authorize the truth. It is the creation of a Priesthood of knowledge by another name; one of many such institutions on Earth. Given that the truth is self evident, that it can be known personally by hard work and dedication, then this is yet another attempt to condition the masses into slave thinking; dependency on experts.
Thankfully, the truth remains true, even when passed from the lips of liars. And we who have the eyes to see what this agenda is, can help our fellows realize the truth can only be discovered from within. If we believe that the truth comes from authorities, then we blind ourselves to seeing it personally. Accepting a belief without verification is the source of much suffering on earth. Hence the development of discernment skills is essential to walking the path of truth in a world of deception.
Alternative Media has been one of the few safe havens for those seeking to know reality personally, to seek the truth. This is an attack on truth seekers, an attack on logical thought and reasoning, one that will be unsuccessful if those who have passed through the initiations of truth seeking stand in their power and continue to reveal their truth's to the world. Inaction is consent of this agenda to blockade knowledge, and maintain an Occult agenda of slavery on Earth.

Search Engine giant Google, the major driver of traffic to the majority of media portals is moving to change the way it ranks websites, declaring that it intends to use known partisan debunking outlets to determine the “truthfulness” of content.
Currently, Google rankings are determined by the number of incoming links to a web page, meaning that if a story becomes popular it can be driven to the top of search results, and by viewed by millions of people.
However, this is a little too democratic for the liking of some, who only like to get their “facts” from pre-approved sources.
The proposed solution, according to a Google funded research team is to compute a“Knowledge-Based Trust score” for every web page, based on Google’s own “Knowledge Vault”, an automated database that determines “facts the web unanimously agrees on,” according to the New Scientist.
“A source that has few false facts is considered to be trustworthy,” says the research team.
In short, any web pages that provide information that contradicts or questions Google’s own established “truth”, will be bumped down the rankings.
In addition, some of those working on “truthfulness” ranking technology have expressed a desire to verify or rebut web pages by cross-referencing them to other sources, such as Snopes, PolitiFact and FactCheck.org. These websites exist and profit directly from debunking anything and everything. What’s more, they have been previously exposed as highly partisan.
It is a move that will set alarm bells ringing for fans of alternative media websites, such as Infowars, which are regularly attacked by the professional debunking websites merely for questioning official narratives, and popularising underreported information.
Presumably, the meters of truthfulness and trustworthiness ultimately implemented by Google will stem from government accounts and it’s mouthpiece mainstream media reports. The rise of the alternative media has directly correlated with the routine exposure of misinformation, propaganda, and outright lies emanating from these institutions.
