Google searches offer you “fact-checks” you didn’t ask for, to make sure that you don’t commit thoughtcrime

From Bruce Joshua Miller:

I find this utterly bizarre, but the “fact-check” has become a means of search engine capture. If I Google “virion .12 microns,” I get: “Fact check: N95 filters are not too large to stop COVID-19.” I did not Google anything about masks for this search.

Update: That “fact-check” now does not come up for me. Does it still for you?
