REDTAGGING ALERT – A newly created Facebook Page, Western Visayas Expose, redtagged Altermidya Panay’s radio program, Dampig Katarungan as the “propaganda radio program [of the Communists] CPP-NPA-NDF [in] Panay”. The page also tagged Dampig Katarungan’s anchor, Crimson Labinghisa as “CPP-NPA-NDF recruiter of the youth in Panay”.
The page claims to expose the “lies and deception of the CPP-NPA-NDF in Western Visayas.”
It can be noted that Facebook just recently took down scores of pages and accounts for systematically spreading fake news and disinformation and were linked to the social media users of the state forces.
Altermidya-Panay condemns such acts as it endangers the lives of the journalists exposing the incompetence of the government, and it curtails the freedom of the press./PT
