Michele on fighting fake news: ‘Be accountable for what we say online’


In the Q&A portion of Binibining Pilipinas last night, Cool Smasher Michele Gumabao was asked by veteran broadcast journalist Ces Drilon, “What can you do to fight fake news?”

Without missing a beat and with full confidence, the former Lady Spiker delivered one of the best answers of the night.

“I know that fake news is very rampant nowadays, but in order to fight this, we must first know what we are reporting, what we are reading and at the same time be accountable for what we say especially online,” MG said. She even called on media companies to use their resources to always deliver “true and authentic news.”

The former UAAP Best Blocker bagged the Bb. Pilipinas-Globe title in the annual pageant.

Congrats on the huge win, Michele!
