Facebook Considering Ways to Combat Fake News, Mark Zuckerberg Says; New York Times, 11/19/16

Mike Isaac, New York Times; Facebook Considering Ways to Combat Fake News, Mark Zuckerberg Says:
"“The problems here are complex, both technically and philosophically,” Mr. Zuckerberg wrote. “We believe in giving people a voice, which means erring on the side of letting people share what they want whenever possible.”...
Mr. Zuckerberg made it clear that Facebook would take care to avoid looking or acting like a media company, a label it has frequently resisted.
“We need to be careful not to discourage sharing of opinions or mistakenly restricting accurate content,” Mr. Zuckerberg wrote. “We do not want to be arbiters of truth ourselves, but instead rely on our community and trusted third parties.”"
