Facebook's latest attempt to tackle is a news show for Facebook Watch, the social network's video-on-demand service.
The new show, Uncovered, will launch in 2019. Each weekly 10-minute episode, designed to be watched on mobile devices, will focus on a single topic.
Uncovered will be produced by the UK's award-winning Channel 4 News. The online show joins other current affairs programming from US networks including CNN and Fox News, launched as part of Facebook's commitment to funding "trustworthy, informative and local" news.
