Marcos to continue vlogging despite busy presidential schedule

PHILIPPINE STAR/ KRIZ JOHN ROSALES

PRESIDENT-ELECT Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr. at the weekend said he would continue vlogging during his presidency.

This would allow him to update the public on his latest activities, he said in a YouTube video.

“We will continue this vlog,” he said. “Every so often, we will explain our activities so that you don’t just get your news about us from newspapers but also from the horse’s mouth.”

Mr. Marcos made the statement in his latest video blog after a follower asked him to continue vlogging despite his busy schedule.

He said vlogging would allow his camp “to hear your comments on the shortcomings that we need to address.”

Incoming Press Secretary Rose Beatrix Cruz-Angeles, a pro-administration blogger, earlier said they would accredit vloggers who want to cover presidential events, including news briefings.

Danilo A. Arao, a press freedom advocate and journalism professor at the University of the Philippines, earlier said the Marcos camp should clarify whether it had consulted the Malacañang Press Corps and other sectors about the plan.

YouTube is not doing enough to tackle the spread of misinformation and disinformation on its platform, according to a global coalition of fact-checking organizations.

YouTube, “a major conduit” of falsehoods, is “allowing its platform to be weaponized by unscrupulous actors to manipulate and exploit others, and to organize and fundraise themselves,” according to a letter to YouTube Chief Executive Officer Susan Wojcicki signed by more than 80 fact-checking groups. “Current measures are proving insufficient.” — Kyle Aristophere T.
