In a move intended to slow the spread of disinformation, YouTube claimed Tuesday it would undoubtedly expand its fact-checking feature to the United States audience search results page. The visual panel display attribute introduced in India and Brazil last year and also shows up at the top of a YouTube search results page listing when a customer shows up to be looking for news resources.

To trigger the site’s fact-check visual, YouTube said there must already be an appropriate reality check short article readily available from an “eligible author.” The aesthetic will likewise just appear based upon just how a customer looks at the site.

“Fact checks will only show when people search for a specific claim. For example, if someone searches for ‘did a tornado hit Los Angeles,’ they might see a relevant fact check article, but if they search for a more general query like ‘tornado,’ they may not,” the company said in a blog post.
