This is an article about a Google Search contractor instructing Google Search raters on fake news sites.

 

 

It is a fake news site though. Alex Jones admitted (through his lawyer) that he is just playing a character on air in his custody battle with his ex-wife.

Google is sending mixed signals here. They talk about cracking down on fake news now run away with their tail between their legs.

What a load of shit (below)...

 

Quote

"We’re explicitly avoiding the term 'fake news,' because we think it is too vague," said Paul Haahr, a senior Google engineer who is involved with search quality. "Demonstrably inaccurate information, however, we want to target."

 

Inaccurate, fake, wtf. If the majority of a news site is blatant lies, it's probably fake news. Probably.

Infowars isn't fake news, they just abuse words like; may, story, source, sources, opinion, question, theory, idea, heard, understand the truth (this one is really nasty), and many other disclosure tricks.

So if they write something like "as we and the rest of America try to understand the truth about ..." This is literally a disclosure that means "We might be totally wrong about this" but it makes it sound like "This is the truth that we have to deal with."

"US ‘SABOTAGED KIM’S MISSILE LAUNCH’: North Korea’s embarrassing missile launch failure may have been caused by US cyber attack"

It may have been volcano aliens as well. Who knows?

I personally find it entertaining, but trust me, the disclosure is always in there somewhere in the questionable content on there.

Other common tactics include quoting books, which, there's no rule that says a book must be true. Or putting a question mark after a statement.

The irony of this, is that when quotes are taken out of context from the radio show, Alex Jones sounds completely hilarious.

Ha! I actually saw that exact headline and listened to the story on Detroit's ABC station last night, LOL!

The loaded gun for every fake news that ever went viral.

Perhaps they want to single out parody sites like Borowitz and The Onion, etc.

Those sites are properly tagged as satire.

Doesn't matter, there's still people on the net that take that stuff seriously.
