“Maraming kumikita sa fake news at maraming nabubudol sa kasinungalingan ng mga pulitiko.” Technology has undoubtedly made it easy—and profitable—to spread fake news, rumors, and outright disinformation. And more than just earn millions, purveyors of fake news are now able to sow distrust in mainstream media and even rig an election to their advantage.

These fact-checking collaboratives are doing their best to promote a “kultura ng resibo” where we ask for evidence and we ourselves are ready to present the proof.
