Google to “engineer” Russia Today and Sputnik out of search results

Tech giant Google is taking steps to fight fake news, with suspect content to be engineered out of search results.
Two Russian media outlets, Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik, have been singled out for special treatment by the company and will be “de-ranked” in search results provided by the search engine, said on Saturday Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of the Alphabet group of companies owned by Google.
RT and Sputnik have been required to register as foreign agents by the US Justice Department
“We are well of aware of [the problem], and we are trying to engineer the systems to prevent [these stories from appearing in search results],” Schmidt said during the Halifax International Security forum in Canada.
But the chairman ruled out a blanket prohibition. “We don’t want to ban the sites. That’s not how we operate,” he added.
