    Facebook's News Tab will display clickable headlines from around 200 news sources, including NBC, Breitbart, BuzzFeed, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and Wall Street Journal. Facebook will pay many of the publishers for their content. The News Tab will supposedly "combat the spread of fake news" – and Mark Zuckerberg probably also hopes it will benefit the company as it undergoes three antitrust investigations by the Federal Trade Commission, the House Judiciary Committee and Attorneys General from 47 US states and territories. "Here are the news headlines we want you to see." Yeah, pardon my skepticism.
