Does this seem legit to you?

As amazing as this sounds, Facebook plans to ask users to help it identify fake news.

How exactly are the people who were essentially targeted by social engineers supposed to know who the social engineers are? If people knew who the right news sources to trust were then Facebook wouldn't need to worry about fake news in the first place. This is, at best, fake effort by people who can't be arsed to actually think about the problem of their users being exploited for malicious purposes.
