@harrison_bergeron It's hard to tell what the truth is. Quite easy to point out the lies.

Basically it's just a schema.org model for fact-checking websites. Nothing stops a fake news media outlet from using it.

I'm sure this isn't biased at all *cough Clinton health issues were filtered from results last election cough cough*

Although I understand the skepticism, this is so much better than a completely algorithmic approach, like Google takes with Instant Answer. Because IA are all algorithmic, they are gamed constantly to say things like "Barack Obama is a Muslim" or other nonsense. With this, at least there is some manual checking of the sources that Google presents as facts.
