Wag OA! Palawan Board Member Ryan Maminta calls out alarmist headline about Palawan fire
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.
