Telum Media caught up with Jonathan de Santos, Chairperson of the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines and a News Section Head at Philstar.com, on how journalists and PRs can combat disinformation. We also learn more about NUJP's recently launched Ethical Guide for Filipino Journalists available here
On PR material: "Some people in our audience might not have time to fact-check or have time to think critically. If it's a press statement, it would help [journalists] if there were citations or sources for the claims made in them."
