A Public Service From The Office Of The Vice President Re Fake News

IMG_8964.PNGMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In the interest of public service and to prevent the spread of misinformation on social media, the Office of the Vice President (OVP) Leni Robredo has published this brilliant guide to detecting fake news.

  • Check the source: If it’s from Rappler, Inquirer, ABS-CBN News, GMA-7, Cynthia Patag, Jim Paredes and Leah Navarro, it must be fake (and biased)
  • Research before sharing: If sources like Manila Times, Manila Bulletin, Thinking Pinoy, Sass Rogando Sasot, Mocha Uson Blog are the ones reporting, you know it’s probably biased but well-researched and based on fact.
  • Read thoroughly: Are you kidding, who does that these days?
  • Check if the article is meant to be satire: that means read the entire article, unless it’s from The Adobo Chronicles, in which case you (should) already know it’s satire.
  • Consult an expert: Call the Office of the Vice President. They’re the experts on fake news!
  • Bonus tip: Investigate, investigate, investigate: Call Senators Antonio Trillanes, Kiko Pangilinan, Leila De Lima, Risa Hontiveros and Bam Aquino for assistance.
