  1. If you want to be taken seriously as a ethical, trustworthy, media outlet with unparalleled facts and data in the real world.

    Then your outlets for News need to be able to cover all KEY aspects and veiw points for its consumer of that Geographic area.

    However, finding a way to ensure 100% that a Fact is truth set in the real world is a great challenge, but having a means to be undeniably correct and right at an instant on being challenged.
    Now that would give you an edge, no one could compete against.

    Manipulation of feild facts to gain eyes, only creates confusion and confidence in your consumer.

    Look at all the negative comments below, and your one of the biggest data collectors and outlet of that data in the world.
    Yet your consumers don't trust your ethics and the ends to the means…. Why?

    Put people before anything, and the masses will follow you to the ends of the earth.

    You don't need to macro or micro manipulate in your marketing.
    Let people feel that your real, and that you know they are real.
    Then the rest will be history.

    Revenue is the by product and your receive it till your eyes pop out of your heads.

  2. Google: Please add a new section called, "Google Video News" which will be Video-Based-News-Content only. Its very different than "google video". I think there's a hunger for that kind of content (at least it is for me). Text based news has its own place, but Video-Based-News will have its own demand (probably a greater one). Just like what you have in google News, this new section will scour the net for any video based news content that's already been uploaded by reputable news organizations. If there isn't any by a reputable news source, its their loss on their promotion and publicity. Think about it. Not everyone is text savvy or has the patience and time to read the written text (do you?). Video is more convenient and convenience always sells more over the existing norm. Thanks.

  3. The two visionaries behind Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, are both Jewish. Larry Page’s connection to Judaism comes from his mother, Gloria Page, who is also Jewish. … Google was founded by Sergey Brin whose parents are Jewish, and Larry Page whose mother is Jewish.

    Just stating can also be a perspective on how a large group of people perceive the world to be and not how it actually is. Just fruit for thought

  4. Google was such a great company before it became a slave to leftist propaganda and starting being used as a boot on the throat of any voice critical of the DNC or leftist politics in general.

  5. The Initiative is shady at best
    Google was accused of pushing scholar Barry Lynn out of the New America think tank it funds, in retaliation for Lynn supporting an EU antitrust fine against the search company.

    Kashmir Hill wrote (2011) that search traffic would decline for publishers that did not add Google's new "+1" social sharing button to their sites. Google didn't appreciate the attention to its strategy and pressured Forbes to remove the article, which ultimately was. The piece disappeared unusually quickly from Google's own search results and cache.

    Google also censors searches for guns. For a time water guns and Guns and Roses would come up blank in google Shopping.


  6. This video is flapping jaws and zero content. They don't tell you how they will be saving journalism. Real journalism gets you locked up in a foreign embassy for several years or living in hiding in russia.

  7. "70% of people can't distinguish between a real story and fake news" says the man. The mainstream media tells us a lone gunman shot jfk, rfk and mlk and now we know that was BS – same as news telling us saddam had wmd and assad gasses his people…no 1% owned media gets to decide for us what's real and what's fake. Keep the internet free speech and diverse.Question all official narratives forever.

  8. Just read the main newspapers like the NY Times, WAPO and you local newspaper. Saves time and better for the nerves.

  9. Would love to see Google bring authentic and positive news to the forefront.

    The critical part social media must play is to nurture optimism in humanity and grow empathy in people for generations to come.

  10. Well done! Google is one the main tunnels for the people to get information and news. It is great to see Google is helping the news organizations to thrive in a time when free services are for granted. The people who are consuming the news every day deserved the high quality news and news based on facts.

  11. Here's the problem… Most people don't want facts, they want flare. It's the 80/20 rule. Intelligence will always be outnumbered.

  12. google news ప్రపంచంలో ఎక్కడ ఎమి జరిగిన అన్నీ వార్తలను గూగుల్ లో చూడవచ్చు తెలుసుకొవచ్ఛు అని బాషలలో కూడ గూగులే

  13. The last few Google results I did had nothing to do with what I was searching.

    I should probably switch search engines.

    …Then again the last alternative search engines I did were even less accurate.

    Dangit Google, you got me by the threshold.
