Facebook To Mark Fake News As Satire

KELLY MCEVERS, HOST:

OK, so it's fake and Facebook is worried you don't know that. So they're going to put the word satire in front of some links in your newsfeed. The Onion, where the phony story came from, declined to comment. But there is a new headline on their homepage - Area Facebook User Incredibly Stupid. It's MORNING EDITION.
