I read that Google - News has a fact-check feature. So I went to https://news.google.com/news .

I see numerous articles but no indication that they are fact-checked.

@gollum,
But I wish they'd overhaul their spellcheck

@gollum,
I think there are only certain news stories in which Fact Check is applicable. If a speaker says that such a law is unconstitutional, Google might have some people with legal knowledge check to see if there are Supreme Court decisions favoring or opposing that law. That's fact check.

On the other hand, if six witnesses see and a video shows somebody walk up to his neighbor and hit him in the head with a shovel, that news story would not be Fact Checked, since the facts are not in question.

@Blickers,
Blickers-

Thank you.

Can you find one article in Google.com/news with the Fact Check imprimatur?

@gollum,
Here's one. If you look under the title of the main article, they have a Fact Check for a related article you can click on.

Also, if you write "Google News Fact Check Trump Syria Missiles Unconstitutional" for Google search you get a list of Fact Checks, including Politifact. Apparently, Google News is also using snopes.com as a Fact Check.
