Andanar suggests all gov't officials to shut down their FB accounts if Mocha's blog will

Presidential Communications Operations Officer Secretary Martin Andanar challenged all government officials to close their social media accounts if Mocha Uson's Facebook page would be shut down.


Reacting to the notions of senators to shut down PCOO Assistant Secretary for Social Media, Andanar defended Mocha for allegedly spreading fake news.

"Okay, granting Mocha's blog be shut down, there are 1.5 million piblic servants in the cou try and I bet most of them, they have their own Facebook pages and Twitter also, then close all of them also," said Andanar in an interview.

"All for one, one for all including all senators, congressmen, and even that of the President, let's shut them down," he added.

Earlier this week, an inquiry on fake news conducted by the Senate committee on public information and mass media, Sen. Grace Poe wondered if this could be the time to shut down Mocha's blog since she is now a government official and no longer a private individual.

Andanar also emphasized that the senate hearing became a Mocha Hearing and not about fake news.

Mocha Uson's blog has five million followers, in which she has been showing her support to Pres. Rodrigo Duterte since the election period.
