Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino and Rappler CEO Maria Ressa want government — and private media networks — to control social media, what kind of information the people are exposed to, and what we are allowed to say online.
This can be gleaned from a statement made by Senator Aquino himself in a recent article in Philippines News Agency (PNA), which said Aquino has urged the Department of Education (DepEd) to consider conducting a “media literacy week” or “responsible social media use week” to combat misinformation on social media.
“Maybe we can work on something that can match that level of speed, exponential growth and energy that we see online… This is something we can explore further and I’m confident that everyone will be willing to volunteer,” Aquino, who chairs the Senate committee on education, said. [source]
