The Sun (Malaysia) - - FRONT PAGE -

KUALA LUMPUR: A group of lo­cal celebri­ties have come to­gether for a ‘’End Cy­ber Bul­ly­ing and False In­for­ma­tion Dis­sem­i­na­tion” cam­paign aimed at com­bat­ing and ad­dress­ing such prob­lems on so­cial me­dia.

Themed “Spread Facts Not Lies” and “I Am With You”, the cam­paign, which has the sup­port of the Malaysian Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Mul­ti­me­dia Com­mis­sion, aims to ed­u­cate the pub­lic on their rights to pro­tect them­selves from cy­ber bul­ly­ing and the spread of false in­for­ma­tion.

The cam­paign, ini­ti­ated by pop­u­lar TV host-ac­tress-en­tre- preneur Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor, was launched yes­ter­day by Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Mul­ti­me­dia Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.

“To­day, I’m hon­oured to launch a cam­paign against false news with lo­cal celebri­ties. I thank them for their de­ter­mi­na­tion to help us fight fake news.

“Fake news can in­volve all Malaysians, re­gard­less of po­si­tion and it’s im­por­tant for us to make sure that such news do not be­come our cul­ture,” Salleh told re­porters when met af­ter the launch­ing of the cam­paign here. – Ber­nama
