One of the conveniences that journalists receive from using the envisioned systems is that the plugins can email journalists should their news articles depend upon factual claims which change.

It’s possible that search rankings, perhaps on some keywords, may factor into the discussion, at some point, as search engines could process and index both the news articles and the factual claims. I’ll think about that.

We also need to build a viral propagation feature into the plug-in to drive its usage. For example, if a notable search engine company would agree to improve search ranking for using verified news and claims? Or maybe earning a "veracity token" for using verified sources?

+1  Great stuff

And would the same type of thing be possible, say as a stand-alone
plugin for browsers, so a self-publisher or small scale publisher who
is building their own website, but not using Wordpress or Drupal,
could also be part of this overall system and have the same fact
claims services?
