If you love your country and wants to do something against those who wants to destroy it by posting fake news, what can you do to save your country from people trying to harm it?
Well, if you asks Net Maranan, fight back by fact-checking the fake news some members of the local media propagates online.
This is exactly what Maranan did by going out of her way, collect all the fake news from mainstream media, debunked it one by one by slapping the facts in their shameless faces.
Maranan said the fake news started with the attack on SEA Games cauldron, claiming it was overprice, extravagant and inappropriate. And then the kikiam, unfinished facilities and the restrooms followed.
You can check the details of the fact-checking done by Maranan to the consternation of the fake news propagators.
Towards the end of the post, Maranan extended the olives to ordinary netizens who fell victim to MSM’s fake news and urged them to delete their post and not allow themselves to be victimized by another fake news and allow the forces of evil to triumph by trampling the truth.
But here’s the heartwarming part of Maranan’s FB post. She told netizens who fell prey to fake news that it’s never too late to make up for their mistake because we are still a few days away from the SEA Games opening and start spreading good news and cheering our athletes and stop spreading fake news!
She said no event will be perfect and no country will ever make it perfect, but we can make this hosting, worth it and something to be proud of.
Sinimulan nila ang paninira sa Cauldron, umabot sa kikiam, unfinished facility at maling balita sa restroom.
Dahil hindi naman nagfact checked, umingay at nadumihan na ang masaya at exciting sana na Sea Games start up. We did not start with a wrong foot. Someone is pushing us to fall down.

Buti na lang may social media, dahil kung wala ,lahat tayo galit na sa Gobyerno dahil sa pagpapakalat ng mga anti ng fake news. They have done this before, manipulate the public countless times. Why do we let ourselves be fooled over and over again. Hahayaan ba nating manaig ulit ang kasamaan at gamitin ang galit ng tao para sa hindi makatotohanan?
Bumawi na tayo it’s not too late, official Opening is still few days ahead. Let’s start spreading good news and cheering our athletes and stop spreading fake news! This event will never be perfect and no country will ever make it perfect, but we can make this hosting, worth it and something to be proud of.
