PPI, NAC engage academe to stop fake news

NO TO FAKE NEWS. By signing the “Covenant to Stop Fake News”, students and educators commit themselves and vow “to refrain from posting or sharing any bit of information that we have not verified to be accurate and truthful — and to have originated from reliable and responsible sources. This, even if such information may seem to confirm what we, or the larger segments of society, think, feel, or believe”. Close to 200 participants from various schools in Baguio, Benguet, Abra, and Pangasinan attended the Scholastic Press Program of the Philippine Press Institute (PPI) and Nickel Asia Corporation (NAC) on “Let’s Get Real on Fake News” at the University of the Cordilleras in Baguio City. The same seminar will be conducted in Batangas, Bulacan, NCR and other areas in Visayas and Mindanao.
