Microsoft Launches ’Fake News’ Filter with Establishment Media ’Experts’

Shock: Drudge Report Blacklisted

Real: Buzzfeed, HuffPo, Media Matters, CNN, National Review, Rolling Stone

FAKE: Breitbart News, Daily Mail, Wikileaks

Without consulting with its users, Microsoft has installed an establishment media browser extension, purportedly designed to rate the accuracy of news websites, as a default setting on mobile versions of its Edge browser. In practice, it creates a news blacklist by warning users away from sites including Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, and the Daily Mail.
