Is Government Liable for Spreading Fake News?

The Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (@CMFR) recently posed a question of the week: should the spread of fake news be penalized? As of this writing, the overwhelming vote reply has been yes.

Proceeding from there, should every Tom, Dick, and Harry be held accountable? That may be seen as impinging on our human right to expression. However, who has the responsibility of being truthful to the people at all times? Few will disagree if we say the government has that responsibility and it should be penalized for spreading fake news in any platform, off and on the internet.

Therefore, when we came across this post from the present Secretary of Justice sharing a fake news piece from a fake news portal, we could hardly contain ourselves! Is a member of the Duterte government actively engaged in the spread of lies? Should he be penalized?

Remove your tin foil hat and put on that thinking cap
