Facebook the most important media regulator?

Formal regulation of the press is notoriously weak, with one consequence the overwhelming dominance of right-wing bias in the UK press - reflecting the views and interests of the billionaire owner barons.

It does highlight the growing power of FB to shape the media landscape as more and more rely on what pops up in FB for their news sources.
