This article in and of itself is a responsible restriction of free speech. By denoting what constitutes fake news, Google is prohibiting the propagation of incendiary language as news. No one is arguing that people shouldn’t be able to express their opinions and beliefs. The problem is packaging those ideas as news and as fact. By Google taking measures to inform consumers of their media that they’re reading something that doesn’t deserve the title of news, Google is standing up for the purity of what journalism and, by extension, what news means.
