  • Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) has confirmed it's working on a news tab to deliver "trustworthy news" to users that will launch this fall.
  • It follows a WSJ report that said the social network had approached numerous news outlets like ABC News, Dow Jones, The Washington Post and Bloomberg about paying them as much as $3M annually to license their news articles.
  • The tab would give news high prominence on Facebook, alongside core features like the News Feed (which includes updates from friends), Messenger and Watch (for videos).
