In addition to the fact-finding in Google News , Google has announced that it will also begin flagging its search results when a subject is considered highly contested.
"When you do a search on Google search that brings results with facts that have been verified, you'll see that highlighted on the results page," said Justin Kosslyn, Product Manager for Jigsaw and Cong Yu, a researcher.
"The text will show which statement was verified, who stated it and the partner responsible for checking the data in particular."
The company clarifies that the facts are not checked by its staff and have been "added so that people can make better informed decisions."
In Brazil, Google has partners like "Lupa Agency", "The Facts" and "Public Agency" for the operation of the tool.
