Facebook to launch false news flag feature

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Facebook is set to roll out a new feature that lets anyone flag news in their feed as a false news story.

The more frequently a particular news story is reported, the less it will appear in anyone's feed on Facebook.

If a story gets a large number of flags, it will be marked with a warning message saying many people have reported that the story contains false information.
