Truth, not its versions
At a time when thousands have climbed up the bandwagon of unlicensed spreaders of information, scattering all kinds of claims not supported by researched reality on the ground, we need to stand up to the challenge of upholding the truth and crushing the lies for people who must continue to believe in the integrity of the disseminators. This clarion call addressed to everyone who has the go-ahead and support of print, broadcast, and online, among others, is timely, with the nomination of the International Fact-Checking Network at the Florida-based Poynter Institute for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. Alarm bells should sound when people spread lies through disinformation. This should be true for whoever makes that claim—from the most naive of social media users to the highest official of the land.
