Wikipedia Has A Separate List For Fake News Sites In The PH

This is not something to be proud of

Wikipedia has released a list of known fake news sites around the world. Because of the number of misleading sites that push out fake news specifically targeting the Filipino public, they’ve made a sub-list just for all those pages.

Just like any divisive piece of content on Wikipedia, the list is on a semi-protected page, which means only established Wikipedia editors can change or modify it.

Multiple websites that Wikipedia has tagged as fake news sites are seemingly pro-Duterte and pro government blogs, with many trying to impersonate established media companies like CNN, Daily Mail, the BBC, Fox News and The Guardian.
