Alphabet Inc’s Google will put more of a premium on “diverse perspectives” in its search results, saying in a blog post on Tuesday that answers highlighted at the top of result pages would soon display multiple viewpoints on topics for the first time ever.
The move comes as internet companies face increasing political pressure to rid their services of misleading or fake news, extremist content and hoaxes.
Google said it was also is considering new labeling so its users could see when a featured answer is an imperfect match based on a proximate question.
