On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before Congress regarding the Cambridge Analytica data breach.

"As a major source for news, Facebook has an obligation not only to be transparent about their data-sharing and usage practices, but they have a duty to ensure their users have access to high-quality, real news," the News Media Alliance says on its website.

"Fake news is not just an annoyance; it is a scourge that puts our civil society at risk," it continues. "As the primary distributors of fake news, Facebook has a central responsibility to fix the problem. And they should share more of their vast advertising revenue with local news publishers that provide quality information about their communities."
