Rob Cham says, #KailanganTotoo
As we head into the 2022 elections, social media continues to be weaponized by those who spread fake news and disinformation. Every storyteller has a role to play in fighting disinformation and pushing for truth. If you have a platform, you have a responsibility. Along with VERA Files and our artist collaborators, we pledge: #KailanganTotoo.
#KailanganTotoo, kaya kailangan mag-verify bago i-share.
#KailanganTotoo, kaya maging mapanuri sa pagpasok sa mga endorsements at partnerships.
#KailanganTotoo, kaya dapat magpakatotoo sa mga realidad sa ating lipunan.
Fake news is rampant today with a lot of people using this as a means for self gain, malice, propaganda, or simply just to sow chaos. Fact checking and finding trusted sources is vital these days to curb fake news and its ramifications, but a lot of it slips through the cracks, and they can only do so much. It's on us as well to fight against these malicious acts.
