MANILA — Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles said that it is crucial to have a streamlined process for announcing the government’s plans, programs, and other initiatives to guarantee that the public only receives trustworthy and verified information rather than false reports.
Cruz-Angeles made reference to a directive issued by President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. calling for the full utilization and mobilization of all state-owned media outlets to bring the government closer to the people.
Now, more than ever, we need effective and honest communication to empower our fellow Filipinos and give them a foothold in this constantly evolving world,” Cruz-Angeles said.
“The President also encourages you to join the government in fighting the proliferation of misinformation and disinformation through inclusive, compassionate, and responsible communication,” she added.
In order to combat widespread misinformation and disinformation, particularly online, the administration implemented its one messaging policy. (ai/mtvn)
