Veteran journalist Vergel Santos of the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) explained how he defines "fake news" or false information.

"News is something that's supposed to have happened, and what fake news is, I suppose, is an occurrence that did not occur. I would prefer to use, probably, false information," Santos told ANC.

"You'll have to define not only fake news, but you'll have to determine the measure or the "fakeness" of that fake news," he said.
