After assessing feedback from both users and publishers, we’re making the Fact Check label in Google News available everywhere, and expanding it into Search globally in all languages. For the first time, when you conduct a search on Google that returns an authoritative result containing fact checks for one or more public claims, you will see that information clearly on the search results page. The snippet will display information on the claim, who made the claim, and the fact check of that particular claim. Google "Fact Check" Tag In News and Search Goes Global [blog.google]
Remove the information... Google is presenting "information" rather than a link to something.Doubtful Google will ever return to the days of *only* published search results. The longer users stay on their pages, the easier they can roll that into income.
It is about protecting the product, as much as the monetary aspect, imho. If people realise the information they are seeing is fake and ultimately, has no credibility, resulting in a decline of authority, those people, eventually, will not believe their sources. Bang goes the credibility.

Internet has been around for 20+ years, people who read it aren't that clueless anymore and can figure out their own news ratings.
