Google is facing accusations of spreading fake news, after being repeatedly discovered sharing falsehoods and conspiracy theories through its “featured snippets in search” functionality.

Paul Bischoff, a privacy advocate for Comparitech.com comments: “Google clearly needs a better method of filtering out fake news, hate speech, and conspiracy theories not just from the knowledge graph, but also from its massive advertising network by which many of these harmful sites are financially supported. Until then, users need to remain vigilant and discerning about where they get their information, and avoid asking their Google Home devices complex questions about politics.”
