Reasons Why Asec Mocha Uson Questions Sen. Grace Poe on Her New Bill Against Fake News

Popular social media personality and appointed Assistant Secretary of the PCOO, Asec Mocha Uson questioned the new bill filed by Sen. Grace Poe which made headlines on various news media outlets about the proliferation of fake news.


Sen. Grace Poe reportedly files bill barring government officials from peddling "fake news," which caught the attentions of Asec Mocha Uson who questioned the senator's new bill because of the availability of said provision in the country's Revised Penal Code.

Asec Uson who has more than 5 million followers on social media noted that based upon the country's Penal Code, particularly in Article 154 which says "Any person who by means of printing, lithography, or any other means of publication shall publish or cause to be published as news any false news which may endanger the public order, or cause damage to the interest or credit of the State;"

Uson noted that the description "any person" already includes all the government officials or any ordinary individuals. The Revised Penal Code was also upgraded and the penalties were heightened according to Republic Act No. 10951.

Here's the Complete Statement of Asec Mocha Uson:

Madam Senator ano na naman po itong bagong paandar ninyo? Meron na po tayo niyan sa batas. As far as I know po ang "ANY PERSON" sa-

REVISED PENAL CODE Article 154
Any person who by means of printing, lithography, or any other means of publication shall publish or cause to be published as news any false news which may endanger the public order, or cause damage to the interest or credit of the State;

- ay kasama lahat maging opisyal o ordinaryong mamayan ka man. 

- at recently pinasa yung batas na nagpapataas ng penalties nito (Republic Act No. 10951). 

Hindi niyo rin po ba alam ito madam SENATOR? 

So ano po itong bagong bill na ito? Paandar para sa 2019? Paki explain po madam. Thank you.
