A study published by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) detailed four models of disinformation in the Philippines, including a state-sponsored model that leads to the "silencing, self-censorship, and chilling effects among dissenters, and the public."

The study, You must register or login to view this., found the following models of "fake news" factories:

  • the in-house staff model
  • the advertising and public relations model
  • the clickbait model
  • the state-sponsored model
The study is authored by Jonathan Corpus Ong, Associate Professor of Global Digital Media in the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Jason Cabañes, Associate Professor of Communication in De La Salle University—Manila.


According to the study, the state-sponsored propaganda model assumes “intentionality from the president himself to intimidate and harass his critics."
"This involves him deploying the fake news label in tirades against mainstream media. His outbursts are usually a response to their unsavory reports of the government and his policies, most notably the war on drugs," read the study, which cited reporting from Rappler and Vera Files as sources of data for the state-sponsored model.

"His message is taken forward by his so-called ‘keyboard army,’ consisting of hyper-partisan political pundits, social media influencers and fans,” it added.

Of the four models, the "most politically agnostic and commercially driven model" is the clickbait model,.

"[C]lickbait websites are so profitable from ad tech alone that political pundits and influencers are happy to cash in from sharing their emotionally appealing but factually misleading stories,” they said.

Meanwhile, the study found that "confident veterans of political campaigns, chiefs of staff" usually lead the in-house staff model while politicians or private donors outsource trolling jobs to disinformation consultants in the public relations model.

The study further noted that the perpetrators of fake news in the country are entrepreneurs who seek political and corporate clients.

“The typical troll in the Philippines is not the sad nerdy guy living in his parents’ basement, but the savvy entrepreneur hyping their digital skills and seeking both political and corporate clients,” Ong said.

“This kind of troll does not need to hide in the dark web or a black market; this troll is employed in the politician's in-house team, a PR firm or a digital marketing company,” he added.

Ong and Cabañes suggested concerned officials to conduct more research about the threat of the trolls, push for legal reforms including campaign transparency, increase transparency in the operations of social media platforms, and enact industry standards and mechanisms in the digital workplace that reward professional and ethical practice to counter fake news.

Hoy ts, maghanap ka rin sana ng artikulo tungkol sa kalokohan ng mga oligarch dito sa bansa natin kagaya niyan sa negosyo nilang tubig na matagal ng pahirap sa aming mga mahihirap, sayang yan pinag aralan mo at ang kahusayan mo sa english grammar, puro kabobohan pinagbabasa mong artikulo.

yeah, not a pro-duterte cult member. Pero pari-pareho lang naman sila, mas organized pa nga at sophisticated pa nga yung mga yellow opposition trolls.
duterte has billions in "intel" funds that nobody can check so, to me the dds trolls are 10000 more than the yellow ones and paid more! Actually I never met yellow paid trolls (I don't deny that they exist) but dds trolls are everywhere...

Exactly! Most of them are all in the professional fields, hindi nila kaylangan na paycheck kasi they are in for the long term gains(investment or utang na loob na magagamit).

not sure about that... especially I don't see a lot of fake news on the "yellow" side... at the opposite 95% of the news coming from dds and official duterte supporters are fake news!

Why the f would the president hire a troll? Wag ka nang mag bulag bulagan. Napaka daming supporter ng pangulo mostly pa mga kabataan na babad sa social media. Nag lipana na kung saan saan kahit nga dito sa phcorner. Subukan mo kayang mag comment sa facebook ng walang sense na comment against sa administration ewan ko lang kung di ka dumugin. :LOL: Yang screenshot mo hindi yan mga supporter ng pangulo mga dilawan minions yan na nagpapanggap mostly mga supporter ng pangulo may profile picture. At talaga bang wala kang nabasang fake news from the dilawan? pakainin kita dyan ng kikiam.
 
you need to understand the difference between anti-duterte news and fake news. It's not because someone says something against duterte that it is fake news...
irresponsible journalism = fake news
sensationalism = click bait

Nananginip ka parin na lahat nang mga against sa LP/opposition walang alam sa politics at uma-asa sa fake news.

The best president daw si duterte :ROFLMAO:

The president that really does not give a crap on what happens to his fellow Filipinos...
After the big quake yesterday in Davao, instead of assessing the damages, reassuring the people... he just went back to sleep... because yes, of course, he was sleeping as usual...

"PSG Commander Brig. Gen. Jose Eriel Niembra: Ok lang wala naman damage house pero pa check pa rin structural integrity. PRRD ok lang natulog uli after the quake. "

Meanwhile:

Aminin mo man or hindi pero yan talaga ang totoo. Jover ikaw bayan si awinahe? Hahaha
