Fact-check alternative news organizations, too

/ 04:01 AM July 07, 2021

While I agree that an inquiry into the cyberattacks reported by the Swedish digital forensic group Qurium Media Foundation (QMF) on altermidya.org and bulatlat.com websites should be conducted, I feel that an investigation on the information and data published by these two online sites is also necessary.

I’ve noticed that bulatlat.com’s data aren’t checked or even validated in earlier postings. They have articles that just present one side of the story, which I believe is unethical. While reporting news or data, one must know all sides of the subject and report them objectively.

For starters, the agencies involved in the so-called “cyberattacks,” DOST and the Philippine Army, have already given their side of the story, and I believe self-regulation is required, and everything must be done in accordance with Philippine law.
