Mocha Uson vows to fight fake news

New Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson is planning to use social media to bring the Duterte government closer to the people and curb the spread of fake news about the administration.

Uson gave a preview of her work at the Palace communications office, a day after taking her oath before Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea in Malacañang.

“Ang ating pong tututukan sa PCOO ay ang mailapit ang mga ordinaryong Pilipino sa pamahalaan sa pamamagitan ng Social Media. At ma-idiretso ang TAMANG BALITA sa ating kababayan sa pamamagitan ng SOCIAL MEDIA,” she said in a Facebook post.

“Panahon na na hindi na tayo umasa sa mga MALING BALITA ng ilang mainstream media at ating palakasin ang SOCIAL MEDIA sa tulong niyo mga tunay na DDS. DAHIL TAYO ANG MEDIA NI TATAY DIGONG,” she said.

The President recently tapped Uson to join the Palace communications office following her stint as member of the Movie, Television Review and Classification Board. She has been designated PCOO Assistant Secretary for Social Media.

Uson, a staunch supporter of the President, has chosen to ignore her bashers and other “bitter” critics who have frowned on her appointment. She said she respects their opinion as part of the country’s vibrant democratic space.

“Kalayaan po nila ang mang bash pero kalayaan din natin ang ipakita ang katotohanan ng mga magagandang nagagawa ni Pangulong Duterte. Pasensyahan nalang dahil mas naniniwala ang tao sa ating Pangulo kesa sa kanila,” she said. (Genalyn D. Kabiling)
