    Facebook has struggled for months over whether it should crack down on false news stories and hoaxes that are being spread on its site. Now, it has finally come to a decision.

    The social network is going to partner with four fact-check organizations: ABC News, FactCheck.org, PolitiFact and Snopes to evaluate articles flagged by Facebook users. If those articles do not pass the smell test for the fact-checkers, Facebook will label that evaluation whenever they are posted or shared, along with a link to the organization that debunked the story. Many of the organizations said that they're not getting paid for this.

    “We have a responsibility to reduce the spread of fake news on our platform,” Adam Mosseri, Facebook vice president of product development, told The Washington Post. Mosseri said the social network still wants to be a place where people with all kinds of opinions can express themselves but has no interest in being the arbiter of what’s true and what's not for its 1 billion users.

    Who's going to fact check the fact checkers.

    I bet if you started a site to do just that, it would be marked as fake news immediately.

    They should just drop it. "Fake" news had no bearing on the result. All they'll end up doing is suppressing opinion pieces and theory...which is ultimately the goal and I doubt that will be done fairly.

    Time to sell, if you own stock in Facebook. This will not end well for them.

    It is just censoring of news and ideas they don't agree with. It is now a liberal safe space.

    Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

    Zuckerberg takes care of that personally. After all, bending people to his will is the function of the site.

    They did a bang up job of trying to stay impartial during the election. I'm sure they will continue this trend.

    We all know who the fact checkers will end up being.

    Huge numbers of "conservatives", "christians" and RINOs are helplessly addicted to facebook just like any other fools.

    Basically facebook users will never see anything critical of "refugee welcome".

    Also mud-slinging is a two-way street buddy. If you can dish it out, you can take it. The election provided me with unlimited entertainment thanks to the mud slinging on both sides. People had already made up their mind on who to vote for, they're not going to be swayed by "Trump/Clinton touched my genitals".

    I hope this only makes everyone push back even more or not use facebook and it's revenue/popularity decline. Progressives still don't realize that after the election and things like Brexit that their opinions not a majority in the real world, unlike how TV and the msm like to portray.

    everyone is guilty of bias, but thats why groups like these fact checkers practice actual journalism. its F'ing insane today that journalism now needs a special name like "fact checker."

    the conspiracy sites and such cannot check the fact checkers, because they are just led around by the nose by their own biases....and page hits.

    A lot of the fake news is being pushed (but not generated) by broke Macedonian teenagers for ad $.

    Macedonian teenagers. Are fooling half of America.

    its just capitalism. if facebook wanted to censor everything but communism, that is their right.

    there is a difference between fake news, and just shit news. plenty of shit news will still be allowed. so fox and the like will still be there for the right wing folks. there will also be legit right wing objective journalism that is still allowed. F'ing pizzagate probably wont make the cut though...sorry.

    I hope they flag many of the garbage Huffington Post articles if they're going to take down the (equally shitty) alt right conservative bs article

    I'm sure they'll crack down on the myth of the gunshow loophole and stories saying/insinuating that you can simply order a firearm online in order to avoid a background check.

    huffington post is just bad partisan journalism. that is still going to be allowed on facebook, coming from the right and the left.

    fake news is clickbait at best, and intentional misinformation at worst. shit like the NY post came up with about el chapo waging war on isis. obama gun registry etc etc

    It is capitalism, and I guess it is fine. But you seem to trust FB when they have already been caught in the past censoring conservative news that was legit. Former employees already outed their practices.

    Now they are just being honest that they are going to censor the things that don't fit their narrative.
