“Let us be aware of what these standard news maker say and published so that we’ll have comparison with those who publish fake news. Alam natin kung anong totoo, kung anong tama, pagkat ito’y galing sa mga media sources na kapani-paniwala, na matagal nang nandiyan, na matagal nang nagbabalita,” said by Cruz quoted by GMA.
