    VP Leni to fake news purveyors: Stop spreading lies especially in times of crisis

    VP Leni to fake news purveyors: Stop spreading lies especially in times of crisis

    Presidential aspirant Vice President Leni Robredo called on peddlers of fake news to stop spreading lies especially in times of crisis, emphasizing that such dishonesty is detrimental to the public that is already in a difficult situation.

    “Maraming naniniwala sa fake news so inaabuso din. Sino 'yung lugi? 'Yung lugi 'yung naniniwala, di ba? Hindi naman kami 'yung lugi kasi di naman totoo. Pero 'yung lugi 'yung napapaniwala nila… nakakainis na gagawin nila ‘to at a time na may krisis,” Robredo told her co-host, journalist Ely Saludar, in her radio show, BISErbisyong LENI on Sunday, January 9,

    “ ’Yung sa ‘kin, ito na 'yung trabaho nila, ito na 'yung negosyo nila pero pag may krisis sana awat muna. Mali na nga 'yung ginagawa nila pero nag-dodoble 'yung kamalian pag ginagawa mo 'yun na ang daming taong naghihirap. Kasalanan nila 'yun, Ka Ely, sa taong bayan,” the Vice President said.

    Recently, fake news peddlers circulated the lie that her daughter, Tricia, skipped quarantine after arriving from the United States before Christmas. Tricia, a medical doctor, tested positive for COVID-19 and was quarantined in an isolation facility until she fully recovered. Tricia documented her stay in the isolation facility, where she also contracted dengue, and shared her experience in a social media post.

    Robredo has been subjected to fake news accounts since she was elected Vice President in 2016.

    Robredo said she and her office have reported numerous cases of fake news to a government agency she no longer identified. The Vice President said the agency has yet to act on her complaints.

    Robredo said that failure to hold fake news purveyors accountable for their actions would only mean ending up with a society driven by lies.

    “Nakikita natin, Ka Ely, 'yung effect ng pag pinabayaan 'yung fake news talagang 'yung mindset ng mga tao, 'yung mga paniniwala ng mga tao, napapaglaruan and nakikita natin 'yun ngayon,” Robredo said.

     

    Robredo urged the people to fight these false narratives together to have a country anchored on truth.

    “’Yung sa ‘kin, kung desidido tayo na ‘yung bansa natin ay naka-angkla sa katotohanan, pagtulung-tulungan natin ‘to,” Robredo said.

    [End]
