The problem is, who decides what is "hyper-partisan"? Some people will consider Slate and Huffington Post as hyper partisan while others don't. Fake news is one thing, partisan is in the eye of the beholder.

Face Book is a private company and can do whatever they want but any judgements on based on political slants will hurt their credibility just as much as the fake news trending.

Legacy media is in trouble, so I'd really like to get behind the scenes and see how much this crusade to extinguish "fake news" on Facebook is really some kind of attempt to prop up the business of big media.

In this last election cycle, "fake news" actually supplied more credible information than "real" news. In "real news" Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were the most beloved candidates, Bernie Sanders was a footnote, Wikileaks was illegal for common people to read, Native Americans are a bunch of thugs, and the Cold War never ended.

So-called "fake news" is the future for information dissemination and big media is falling the way print media. Trying to snuff it out on Facebook will just send people away from Facebook. I'm all for that.

I'm just happy I never had an FB account. I may be stupid but at least I'm not a sheeple.

Yeah, I never saw fake news channels like CNN being blocked even once.

Disgraceful really....

Here's a list of fake news networks that coordinated with the Clinton campaign to stop Bernie Sanders.....with wikilinks email references.....

ABC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg, MSNBC, New York Times......

All these colluded to produce FAKE NEWS stories....

I'm fifty years-old and severely handicapped. I've left my home perhaps three times in the last year and am either in bed or on the computer.
I used Facebook as 'Zonker Harris' for at least five years (I can't remember exactly when I started the account). Several days ago they suspended my account and deleted and history I had on friends pages... I never existed there. There was no word of warning and I wasn't aware of a 'real name policy'... I was listed as living in the Galapagos Islands.
I'm frankly amazed that people believe this policy is in any way for their protection. The only use for demanding personal information is to monitor people.
Facebook took one of the only pleasant things in my life away without a care. I won't bother trying to use a false name again... but I won't use me own. Facebook no longer exists to me. I sold £7,000 in Facebook's stock and reinvested it in Google. Bravo, Facebook... I hope the NSA appreciates your due diligence.
