Google announces a new feature that tags and helps "fact checking in large news stories."

Tagged articles will show up in the new story box on news.google.com, as well as in the Google News and Weather app for iOS and Android in the USA and the United Kingdom.

There's a two-pronged approach to detecting fact checking. First Google looks for actual markup in the site's source code. Then Google looks for pages "that follow the commonly accepted criteria for fact checks." You can learn more about the process here.

To be clear, the tags show up in the small gray text above the article links -- Google itself isn't passing judgment, nor does it tell you the source article's conclusion in search results. It's merely a sign that says "hey, read me to find out the truth." Still, it's a nice way to make sure readers are at least forming opinions based on fact rather than fiction.

What makes it FACT CHECKED
It has this `microdata` hidden inside it that lets google know it's been fact checked.
Google will list articles as FACT CHECKED if it has something like this in it when the Googlebot indexes the page.

this page is a dictionary to the information buckets in here.
Anyway it describes the originating organization, author and a mini review by the author of this particular Review
