‘KEY­BOARD ARMY’

Sun.Star Cebu - - NEWS PLUS -

Cana­dian Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau told Pres­i­dent Duterte about his coun­try’s con­cern about hu­man rights, ex­tra­ju­di­cial killings and rule of law. And Duterte, Trudeau said, was “re­cep­tive of the com­ments” and through­out there was a “cor­dial and pro­duc­tive ex­change.” No cursin: no son of a whore or b.s.

The U.S.-based hu­man rights group Free­dom House said the Philip­pines is among the 30 coun­tries (up from 28 last year) that use bots and trolls -- au­to­mated ac­counts and fake news sites and pro­pa­ganda out­lets -- to “make it ap­pear” the pub­lic sup­ports the anti-il­le­gal drugs war and the killings. Each per­son tapped for the “key­board army” earns from P500 to P2,000-P3,000 a day, Free­dom House said.
