Fake news
PERCIVAL B. ALIPIT, Baguio City

Among words or expressions often used and have gained popularity, the Collins Dictionary selected “fake news” as its “2017 Word of the Year.” So what is its implication?

Fake news, which contain false information, are disseminated and are usually sensationalized. They are repeatedly used in political rambles and are circulated to mislead expectations, decisions or actions, defame reputation, and with malicious motive to boost one’s power, wealth, and pride.

Those spreading fake news are arrogant people who manifest hypocrisy and who deceive others to pursue selfish intents and interests.

Being fake is not desired since it does not do us any good. To achieve change for the better towards peace, harmony, service, and progress in the society, we must positively change our ways – to think of what is right, talk and write what is true, and act accordingly.
