FINAL SALVO. Silliman University in Dumaguete hosted the last of the seminar series on “Let’s Get Real on Fake News” and led the signing of the covenant in the fight against disinformation. A total of 170 attendees from various schools packed the audio-visual theater of the university’s College of Mass Communication. The communal thumbs down opened the program and the signing closed it. The Philippine Press Institute (PPI), also known as the national association of newspapers conducted the seminars with support from Nickel Asia Corporation (NAC) in line with its scholastic outreach and civic journalism programs.
