Google News Initiative

The Google News Initiative (GNI) is Google’s effort to help journalism thrive in the digital age. Its first focus is to elevate and strengthen quality journalism. For more than four years Google has worked to enable and grow the fact-check ecosystem in collaboration with hundreds of publishers and fact-checking organizations around the world.

We believe the fact-check model shows promise, and we are now looking to expand that effort to improve the integrity and accuracy of health information found on the web.
