With Google now being synonymous with searching - when did you last hear someone say "I'll just Bing it" - our dependence on that search engine is significant. So, if search results become poisoned or tainted they can have a significant effect. That can happen if a fake story gains enough traction. Eventually, the fake story becomes so popular and re-reported it transcends the boundary between falsehood and accepted. Google has now rolled out their Fact Check label globally to help us tell the difference between validated and unvalidated news.
