Facebook Creates 'Safeguards' to Guard Against News Bias

Facebook said that an internal investigation found no evidence of systemic political bias in the selection of news presented in a section of its app called Trending Topics. Even so, the social network, which is making a tour of contrition after accusations that it actively suppresses conservative content, said it would make some changes to Trending Topics, including no longer referring to a list of national news sources -- like Fox News, The New York Times and BuzzFeed News -- to “boost” topics appearing on its Trending Topics.
