Senator Nancy Binay asked Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson during the recent Senate hearing on fake news last Wednesday, Oct 4.
Madame chair, for clarification na lang. Since we’re all government officials, we are bound by RA 6713 and under Section 4. Nakasulat doon we cannot use the excuse of doing things in our capacity as private individuals.
So parang malinaw na malinaw na at this point in time, di mo na puwedeng ihiwalay ‘yung pagiging blogger mo sa pagiging Asec. So I guess, malinaw na talaga. Baka it’s high time to decide kung gusto mo maging blogger o kung gusto mo maging Asec, Binay said.
Mocha Uson insisted that her blog is her own account and not under the government. She also insisted that the rules of fairness does not apply to her as she claims she is primarily a blogger and not a journalist.
Senator Nancy Binay, however, have recently been impressive and a growing number of netizens have began to notice.
