Senator Grace Poe Sets Committee Hearing On Fake Fact-Checkers

DE095D49-BEB3-4F56-B360-53E6298FCB35MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Realizing her Senate committee hearings on fake news are going nowhere, Senator Grace Poe is now calling for a new inquiry on fake fact-checkers.

Poe’s announcement came just days after Rappler and Vera Files announced their partnership with Facebook to fact-check news on social media.

”The Filipino people deserve fact-checkers that are legitimate,” Poe said.

The lady Senator specifically referred to Rappler’s most recent fact-checks involving the satirical news site, The Adobo Chronicles.

”If Rappler can’t even distinguish between fake news and satire, we have a big problem,” she added.
