“Philippine journalists and experts marked World Press Freedom Day by expressing grave concern Tuesday about alleged online attacks by supporters of presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and urging social media giants to patrol their online platforms.

They also pointed to a disinformation campaign via social media, alleging it had skewed the race in favor of Marcos with less than a week to go till Election Day. The frontrunner in surveys is the son and namesake of the late dictator who ruled the Philippines for 21 years, mostly under martial law.”
