Facebook can't escape criticism about its role in distributing "fake news." Confronted with what you might call a gentle probing on The Today Show on Thursday, a top exec said the company is "working on it."

"We're working on it, because misinformation is something we take seriously and something we're going to continue iterating on the surface."Sheryl Sandberg, Social Media, Fake News, Facebook, and Tech
