Bye-bye DDS! Florin Hilbay lauds Facebook move against fake news
Atty. Florin Hilbay likes Facebook newest crusade against fake news. The abogado said that the big social media platform is starting to recognize the damaging effect of these type of news to democracies.
FB is starting to recognize the damage fake news brings to democracies & its responsibility for that mess. It has the obligation to clean its marketplace of ideas. Fake news destroys the value of truth & devalues ideas.
Kaya naman pala inuna ng FB i-block mga pro-Duterte pages.

Hilbay also emphasized that Facebook and its creator, Mark Zuckerburg, have a responsibility to clean up this on-going mess. The abogado noted that it needs to ensure that its marketplace of ideas remains to be pristine.
The former Solicitor General also added that “fake news destroy the value of truth and devalue ideas.” This is is why it’s only rightful that Facebook puts a stop on Duterte supporters’ pages first.
There he said it! Mic drop.
