Google gives new meaning to “Orwellian”
…if all records told the same tale — then the lie passed into history and became truth.
~ 1984, George Orwell
The New Scientist has the stunning story (2/28/15, “Google wants to rank websites based on facts not links,” by Hal Hodson):
THE internet is stuffed with garbage. Anti-vaccination websites make the front page of Google, and fact-free ‘news’ stories spread like wildfire. Google has devised a fix – rank websites according to their truthfulness.
Great idea, right?
