Oh, that will go well. Why do they think they have to dictate people what they should pay attention to? And they will and are crushing conservative thought.

Facebook announced Friday it will ask users to grade news organizations based on trustworthiness in order to combat “sensationalism, misinformation, and polarization.”
News shared on the social networking site has drawn scrutiny since the 2016 presidential election, and Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said he wants the site to focus more on personal interactions. As such, posts from news pages will populate a smaller portion of users news feeds, and Facebook will trust users to determine what sources should appear.
“We decided that having the community determine which sources are broadly trusted would be most objective,” Zuckerberg wrote.
“As part of our ongoing quality surveys, we will now ask people whether they’re familiar with a news source and, if so, whether they trust that source,” he added. “The idea is that some news organizations are only trusted by their readers or watchers, and others are broadly trusted across society even by those who don’t follow them directly.”
