Google ‘Thought Police’ to rank websites based on their “truth”

And so the crackdown on "Free Speech" and Freedom of Expression continues...
In a world with billions of websites, traffic has become the most important statistic for any webmaster.
Now Google, the worlds largest search engine, has a plan to change their rankings that could, in theory, destroy any news outlet that doesn’t report from a mainstream perspective.
Researchers at Google recently released a report that called for using a system that ranks websites on their trustworthiness rather than their popularity across the web. Instead of counting incoming links, the system would use Google’s Knowledge Vault to determine the accuracy of a website.
While we have all dealt with disinformation on the internet, the fact that the search giant plans to decide what is and isn’t true should have any freedom minded individual worried, especially when you consider Google’s public positions on many controversial topics.
