WHAT!?! Microsoft browser warns users! Don’t trust Daily Mail website? Who are they to Judge? – DoctorLaptop’s Computer News
NewsGuard Is Coming! Microsoft is rolling out a news censoring feature named NewsGuard.
Edge browser users on Android and Apple devices can already just click one button to enable it’s news censor NewsGuard, a “green-red”  rating signal if a website is trying to get it right or instead has a hidden agenda or knowingly publishes falsehoods or propaganda” – as determined by Who!?! It will eventually show up in other devices and web browsers like Chrome, Firefox and Edge. NewsGuard has green-lighted CNN, The Guardian, Buzzfeed and NY Times; it has red-lighted the Daily Mail, Russia Today and Drudge Report.
This week Microsoft began installing it automatically on all mobile editions of its Edge browser in the first stage of what it’s creators hope will be a widespread roll-out to all computers and devices. Edge browser users should receive a pop-up explaining the new service. They can choose to opt-in on the mobile browser itself.
Understandably, independent news agencies and internet freedom watchdogs are very concerned about how, and by whom, the trustworthiness rating will be determined.

Also, look for website blocking lists to be installed in the hardware of new comps and mobile devices. Computer manufacturers will use lists of  “undesirable” web addresses that will be blocked no matter what system you are running. IPTV portals and streaming sites are sure to be targeted; that’s exactly what happened to some MAG IPTV boxes a few months ago.  One system update and all your favs are blocked. Another dirty trick Microsoft is doing is requiring computer manufacturers to use new processors that prevent previous versions of Windows from being compatible. No good old Win 7, and maybe no Linux, on that Windows 10 laptop you buy next year. Of course this will also  require many people and businesses to buy new Win 10 versions of all their favorite old programs
