Facebook Aims to Promote Better Journalism, Fight Hoaxes and Work With Local News Outlets

It's looking for input from newsrooms

In a blog post on Wednesday, Facebook laid out a fairly elaborate plan to promote better media reporting and consumption. Called the Facebook Journalism Project, it includes a local news initiative, new storytelling formats and fighting hoaxes, among other items. With the current debate about whether President-elect Donald Trump's reported problems with Russia are real or fake, the announcement is timely.
