(VIDEO) Attention Mark Zuckerberg: This is Your Partner In Fact-Checking

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – If only Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg understood the Filipino language, we’re sure he’d be squirming in his seat when he sees this video of Vera Files’ Ellen Tordesillas when a television talk show host asked her to define fake news.  Facebook recently partnered with Vera Files, along with Rappler, to fact-check news and information on social media in the Philippines.

We’ll let the video speak for itself, so we could spare Rappler and Vera Files wasted time in fact-checking us.

But for the sake of Zuckerberg, here’s the gist of the exchange between the TV host and Tordesillas:

Host: Can you give me a working definition of ‘fake news?’

Tordesillas:  ah, uhmmm, ah, wait lang, ah, uhmmm, okay #$%*@xyz*#$$$$$$$$$$$$$,ugh, paksyet!
