You’re probably wondering why you should trust Google News in Australia and New Zealand.
I know what you’re thinking.
Why should I trust a news source when I can trust Google news?
Well, firstly because Google news is Google’s own news, and so it has the ability to influence how you read it.
Secondly, Google news does not publish the same stories as other news organisations, and its news content is often based on opinions and opinions are often based upon biased news reporting.
Thirdly, the news organisations that cover Google news are sometimes biased.
Fourthly, Google News is a private company, so the news you see on it is only based on the opinions and biases of the people who own it.
And fifthly, as a private corporation, Google has the legal right to control how you view, read and share the news.
Google News may be private, but that doesn’t mean it is a bad thing.
The fact is, if you want a free and open society, then you should not trust news from Google News.
