Facebook, Credible News and COVID-19
Hear about the steps that Facebook has taken to support the spread of quality, authoritative news from local sources and to fight the threat of false news. This session will focus on two specific topics.
$100 million commitment to journalism: In March, Facebook announced a $100 million investment in journalism in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Learn about the work that has been accomplished with those funds and what comes next as part of that commitment.
Fact-checking: Facebook uses both technology and human review to fight the spread of misinformation. Hear how Facebook partners with independent third-party fact checking organizations around the world to rate and review the accuracy of content on its platforms and what it’s doing to support the broader fact-checking ecosystem in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
This session will be rebroadcast on The NAB Show Experience 2 Channel on May 14 at 10:00 p.m, and May 15 at 6:00 a.m Eastern Time.
