PCOO DRIVE VS. FAKE NEWS. Ilocos Norte Vice Gov. Angelo Marcos Barba (center, front row), Presidential Communication Operations Office assistant secretaries (ASECs) Kristian Ablan and Ana Marie Paz Banaag and their staff are joined by local media practitioners and government information officers as they pose for a souvenir photo with the President Dutere’s signature fist gesture during a meeting at the Provincial Capitol, Laoag City. The PCOO group arrived in Ilocos Norte on Jan. 24, 2018 and talked with the local media and government scribes about their ongoing nationwide anti-fake news campaign. The PCOO ASECs urged the LGUs and government agencies to have their own info officers to help curb the proliferation of fake news. (Photo courtesy of PGIN-CMO)
