Will Duterte #FireMocha amid Twitter rage over ‘fake news’?

Aug 23, 2017 @ 10:01

President Duterte’s staunch defender, Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson, is under fire for supposedly peddling fake news online.

Dozens of netizens have demanded the dismissal of Uson, making #FireMocha the top trending topic on Twitter since Tuesday (August 22).

Uson earlier asked Vice President Leni Robredo and other yellow senators to visit the wake of a cop killed during a drug buy-bust operation.

A photo of the supposed wake carried the message “Calling Leni, Bam, Trillanes at Hontiveros. Kailan niyo dadalawin ito?” with the caption “Waiting.”

It however turned out the photo was a screen grab from a Philippine Daily Inquirer story written a year ago about the policeman killed in the line of duty. The PCO official has already taken down the post.
