With so much information competing for your attention, the role of filters becomes critical.  But who governs the filters, according to what rules?

“Facebook Edges Toward ‘Fact Checking’ News,” The Wall Street Journal, December 16, 2016 A1.  Facebook responds to purported/reported growth of “fake news.”

We can all agree that an objective validation of a story is a good thing (isn’t that what the media used to do?), but who checks the checkers?  Do you/we trust Facebook to be objective?  What duty does Facebook have, and to whom?
