According to a report in WSJ, Facebook is to start testing a news sources feed based upon user valuations of credibility.

Facebook will prioritize news reports in the news feed from publications that Facebook's users have rated in surveys as trustworthy.
The most “broadly trusted” publications—those trusted and recognized by a large cross-section of Facebook users—would get a boost in the news feed, while those that users rate low on trust would be penalized. The change only applies to U.S. users., though Facebook plans to roll it out later internationally.
