0

There’s so many tragedies taking place in the world that there’s no need to exaggerate certain events.

Palawan Board Member Ryan Maminta was displeased about how a Youtube video on a fire in Cuyo, Palawan was headlined.

The headline of the video said Palawan was being consumed by fire.

But Maminta, in a Facebook post, said the fire in Cuyo was already put out.

Moreover, it created the scary impression that the whole province was on fire.

There should be proper fact-checking, he added.

Choose your words carefully!

“Maka-headline sobrang nakakatakot. This is wrong. Naapula na sa Cuyo ito. Fact-check lang,” he posted.
