Facebook Partners With Leni Robredo To Fact-Check Fake News

146A1429-834A-47C5-B4B3-D21EB535149BMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Apparently, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is not happy with his two fact-checking partners, Rappler and Vera Files so he announced a third partner in the Philippines — none other than Vice President Leni Robredo.

Since the Facebook partnership began, Rappler and Vera Files have focused their fact-checking on satire sites, including The Adobo Chronicles.

Zuckerberg wanted someone who will focus on fake real news, or should we say real fake news.  Facebook believes Robredo and the Office of the Vice President are best qualified to be fact-checkers of fake news.

The ink hasn’t even dried on the Facebook-OVP partnership agreement, but already, Leni Robredo went straight to work, fact-checking journalist and Manila Times columnist Rigoberto Tiglao.

Robredo tagged Tiglao as a purveyor of fake news.
