In the Philippines, we assist Filipino media in defending their freedom and independence, and help protect the safety of Filipino journalists. We use a large toolbox of activities to tackle disinformation, both from the supply side – by tracking malign actors and supporting factcheckers and investigative journalism – and the demand side, by promoting awareness and media literacy. We support self-regulation of the media sector, to consolidate trust in independent journalism and promote ethical standards. Internews works closely with the Philippine civil society, media sector and academic community.
