Facebook Exec: We Resisted Having Standards On Fake News

Blah, blah, blah, more lip service, blah, blah, blah, making stuff up as we go along, blah, blah, blah, pulling stuff out of our ass, blah, blah, saying what you want to hear, blah, blah. -Facebook

"For so long, we had resisted having standards about whether something’s newsworthy because we did not consider ourselves a service that was predominantly for the distribution of news. And that was wrong!" Schrage said during a panel on the media’s role in the election. He added: "We have a responsibility here. I think we recognize that. This has been a learning for us."
