I think this is part of Google's push against misinformation/fake news which is ramping up for the big US elections next year. I'm expecting more changes like this & tightening up the EAT mindset at Google.

Well, it's not like mainstream news isn't biased or spread misinformation.

It's much more than that, but that's an example out of many. I'm just becoming more disillusioned with MSN as time goes on...
