Facebook to Tackle Fake News

Facebook Inc. is taking steps to address its role in spreading fake news, such as enlisting the help of third-party fact checkers and posting warnings on dubious stories.

Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg on Friday responded to criticism that Facebook’s news feed rewarded false stories in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election, including a post that said Donald Trump was endorsed by the Pope.
