Facebook to ask “community” to rate trust worthiness of news sources

Facebooks says it will periodically survey users to rank the trustworthiness of news sources that may be seen on Facebook.

This proposal by Facebook is loopy.  A few million followers of Occupy Democrats will rate it as super trustworthy while viewers of Fox News will rate it as the most trusted and unbiased source of news. Facebook is combating fake news by using a poll of the effectiveness of propaganda.

A search online finds widespread condemnation of Facebook’s plan for combating fake news. CNET shreds the proposal: Facebook shirks responsibility, says experts can’t be trusted
