Rupert Murdoch reportedly threatened to publicly criticize Facebook back in 2016 if it didn't do a better job of compensating publishers

Rupert Murdoch reportedly confronted Mark Zuckerberg in front of a number of executives in 2016, demanding Facebook adjust its business model to be a better partner to the publishing industry. The conversation seemed to spur some action at Facebook, though not enough, and Facebook is expected to make a number of updates to its news feed throughout 2018. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has heard from a lot of frustrated news organizations and leaders in media about the role Facebook has played in spreading fake news, and some of the strongest words reportedly came directly from Robert Murdoch, the media mogul and founder of News Corp, according to a WIRED report by Nicholas Thompson and Fred Vogelstei.
