Google Launches New “Fact Check” “Feature” Built Into Search Engine




(Stillness in the Storm Editor) Don't have time to think critically? Has research and analysis got you down? No problem. No need to think or use your discernment when Google can do that for you!

The reality management wizards are at it again. Truth be told they've already succeeded in making the majority of the population completely inept at perceiving reality first-hand, as scores of people rely on experts, gurus, and the media to tell them what reality is. But now Google is making it that much easier to write off your personal discernment for a quick and easy yes-or-no answer. 



I wish I could say that people won't be so easily fooled but history dictates otherwise. 

Let's face it, discernment is time-consuming, emotionally draining when our reality bubbles are burst, and unpopular as we tend to see things differently from the well-trained masses. So I suspect that droves of people will welcome this new form of censorship. 

And considering that the internet has an incredible wealth of information to empower the awakening mind, I'm surprised they didn't push this button sooner. 

But thankfully, the truth can be hidden for a time but never entirely quashed. And those who seek will find it, even if media giants like Google try to make it harder to for the masses to find it. This just reinforces the idea that discernment cannot be outsourced. If seeking the truth is to have any value in empowering the individual, one has to do the work at a personal level. 

So keep searching for truth, and you'll find it.

Today Google, launches it’s new “Fact Check” feature! This will add a label on your new search results showing whether the article is fact or fiction. In Googles, own words they hope to

“shine a light on it’s efforts to divide fact from fiction.”

Google’s Head of News, Richard Gingras, added the feature will “help readers find fact checking in large news stories”.

“You’ll see the tagged articles in the expanded story box on news.google.com and in the Google News & Weather iOS and Android apps, starting with the US and the UK,” ~Richard Gingras, Google’s head of news, said.

Google will determine whether a fact check is needed for a news story based off user submissions to review the story for a factual analysis.

There are many other “Fact checking sites” available but the problem often is political bias takes over the factual information. Take snopes.com, for example, run by a husband and wife, not an investigation team, but a married couple that uses search engines to “fact check.”

Very often, I have visited snopes to look up stories and come to find they left out important information or details altogether and try to direct an angle to debunk a claim of information.

That’s why I recommend, if you do have the time, to look into something yourself, that way no one can tell you what to think, leaving out information to serve their own agenda debunking. If you are going to debunk something it should be a clean debunk, proving your point and shouldn’t require the deception of your audience leaving out information.

At that point ones own intentions have to be questioned, and whether the person is purposefully spreading disinformation knowingly covering up or avoiding information.

JTRIG or paid online trolls/shills exist, employed by various contracting companies to lie like Snowden revealed. But paid online trolls, were exposed before Snowden first revealed publicly when Monsanto was found using Blackwater trolls to troll Anti-Gmo activist online.

Google has been accused of shilling for Hillary the entire election season, even censoring search results on Hillary Clinton. How can we trust Google with fact checking information when it’s too busy shielding Hillary Clinton from going to prison? Manipulating auto-complete search results for Hillary, blocking out Hillary scandal search query results and more. Did I mention Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt is funding Hillary Clinton’s campaign? That’s not bias at all to censor negative search results of your candidate?



Schmidt responded to the allegations by claiming Google does not support any candidate for president. “We have not taken a position on the American election and nor do I expect us to,” Schmidt said.

Despite Schmidt, individually himself providing funding to The Groundwork, a data startup that provides “services” to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Which The Groundwork fails to disclose any information on its data services it offers and only displays an ominous logo. But “The Groundwork” has done services for Hillary Clinton and her campaign totaling up to $600,000 according to tax filings.


Yet again, recently leaked Wikileaks Podesta emails show Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, exposed that he had setup meetings to meet with the Clinton campaign’s Cheryl Mills and Robby Mook despite publicly claiming, “Google had not taken a position on the American election and nor do I expect us to.” Meaning Google, might not have but it’s executive chairman has taken a clear position shown by the other companies he is involved in.

This comes as social media networks have began shadow banning and suspending users to filter out content they deem undesirable for their networks. Listen to the interview I just did with Andrew Torba GAB.AI, CEO where Andrew says that “Big Social” is censoring users for their big stock holders as well as selling user information like birth dates and phone numbers. Google also owns Google+ which is Google’s own social media network. Will Google do evil and censor and label politically scandalous content or content that could harm the government as fiction? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think about Google taking it upon themselves to “fact check.”

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
