Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo slammed the parody account “Malacañang Events and Catering Services” for posting a political meme and endorsing the opposition candidates.
KAMI learned that Panelo deemed the political meme as “defamatory.”
According to a report by the Manila Bulletin (author Gen Kabiling), Panelo said that the supporters of the opposition are showing “extreme desperation” as the Election Day is drawing near.
Panelo said that he denounced the use of his image for a “black propaganda” and “political mudslinging.” He said that such fake news was spread by the supporters of the opposition.
“It is a given fact that there are still netizens who believe in what they see or read on the internet, including images that have been obviously altered, edited or photoshopped,” Panelo stated.
As reported by the CNN Philippines, Panelo urged the fact-checkers of Facebook to show impartiality regarding matters like this.
As previously reported by KAMI, the Palace released a new diagram of the alleged “oust-Duterte” plot to destabilize President Rodrigo Duterte. Some media outfits like Rappler, and sportswomen like Gretchen Ho and Hidilyn Diaz were linked to the matrix.
