Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson has opposed Facebook’s choice of Rappler to be a part of its fact-checking program particularly because the on-line media group has been allegedly concerned in fake news.
Uson, who has greater than 5 million followers on Facebook, has accused Rappler of posting false info, together with accusations President Duterte’s aide Bong Go intervened within the Navy frigate deal, with out issuing any erratum when their errors had been uncovered.
“Sa totoo lang ok naman ang idea ng FACEBOOK pagdating sa pag fact check sa mga naglalabas ng FAKE NEWS blog/sites pero ang sabit yung kunin ang RAPPLER,” Mocha wrote on Facebook.
“Napatunayan na yan sa Senado na FAKE NEWS ang mga pinakalat nila noon kay SAP BONG GO. Madami pa yang sablay na talagang hindi nag e-eratum,” she stated.
