Philippine Catholic Bishops Decry Fake News About Manny Pacquiao’s Loss to Jeff Horn

IMG_2609MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just a couple weeks since it issued a pastoral letter urging Filipino Catholics to be weary of fake news especially on social media, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) denounced the proliferation of Internet lies that Senator Manny Pacquiao lost the fight against Australian Jeff Horn.

The WBO welterweight match between the Filipino and the Australian happened today in Brisbane, Australia.

“It’s fake news that many on social media are using to discredit the religious senator,” CBCP said.

CBCP asked the Catholic faithful to always check their news sources before spreading what could be fake information.

“Pacquiao is highly favored with God,” CBCP said, “so there is no way he will lose any fight in his career.”
