Today I noticed a spam link (from a website with a fake-news-sounding name) on my Google News feed. My first thought was to flag this as not news or as unwanted, but I wasn't able to find any option to do this.
How can I report spam or fake news to Google so they can filter it from Google News?
I feel the need to clarify because "fake news" in my post seems to be inviting misinterpretation. I do NOT mean "fake news" in the Trumpian sense. That is, my goal is not to flag news stories that run counter to my personal beliefs.
Rather, I mean "fake news" quite literally. Spam purveyors masquerading as news outlets.
I was getting a flurry of spam "stories" on my feed from sites with names like "West Cost Newz" (I don't remember the exact names -- there were several). The headlines would be along the lines of "Payday Loans Hot Pensacola Low Interest Save". The news-like name of the site was leading Google to include this spam in the news content it aggregates for Google News.
