'Facebook's New Role as News Publisher Brings New Scrutiny' by Marc Tracy

Marc Tracy writes for The New York Times, “A little more than two weeks after Facebook announced a news initiative, the social network was on the defensive, responding to a published report that a website co-founded by the company’s top news executive had displayed bias against Elizabeth Warren. … The flap is the latest sign that Facebook will be susceptible to charges of bias now that it has stepped more boldly into the role of media publisher.”

While many news organizations supported the launch of Facebook News, “because Facebook is able to deliver readers in huge numbers and had agreed to pay for some content,” the company was met with “skepticism, too, some of it resulting from Facebook’s decision to include Breitbart, a far-right news and commentary site, among the publications it had chosen to highlight.”
