MANILA, Philippines- Malaki ang paniniwala ni Senador Risa Hontiveros na masusugpo at maisasagawa ang paglaban sa pagkakalat ng fake news sa social media kung gagawin ito mismo online sa masayang pamamaraan.

Isinagawa ni Hontiveros ang naturang obserbasyon sa ginanap na 14th Council of Asian Liberal and Democrats Assembly sa Iloilo City sa kooperasyon ng Centre for Liberalism and Democracy (CLD), Liberal Party (LP) of the Philippines at ang Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom Southeast and East Asia (FNF SEEA).

“We need to know who we want to speak to, learn their language, and meet them where they are. If they are on TikTok, we need to amplify our presence there. If they get their news on YouTube, we need to start uploading more information there,” ayon kay Hontiveros.

“If Facebook messenger is where everyone is talking, we should also be starting conversations there. I cannot stress enough how we here today, including our supporters and spheres of influence, should consciously remove ourselves from the temptations of a political reality that affirms our own beliefs and biases,” dagdag niya.

Sinabi ni Hontiveros na ang online fake news industry na pinagkakakitaan ng marami, ay hindi mawawala sa pamamagitan ng pagrereport ng isang indibiduwal sa post na fake new o maling impormasyon bilang harmful content.

“Fighting disinformation will take more than our individual efforts to take down posts, report platforms, or bust bots. We should also accept that inasmuch as we see technology and social media giants as contributors to the failures of our democracy, these remain to be platforms that the general public, the people we serve, our citizens, enjoy,” aniya.

“If we were to build a stronger defense against disinformation, we have to reach and talk to the public in a way that they can relate to and find joy in. We in the opposition must strive to change the political environment in order to win the hearts and minds of the people. We can in fact use these tools — the internet, technology, social networks — to not only broaden our appeal to the masses but also to protect our democratic values,” dagdag niya. Ernie Reyes
