NEWS5 has always been different, and I think that is impressive. Remember the time they did “B.A.Y.A.W. for President” during the presidential elections? Jun Sabayton became a household name doing fictional stories, parodies directed to educate the Filipino voter and the community as well. B.A.Y.A.W. means “Bagong Alyansang Ayaw sa Walanghiya” was aimed to ridicule traditional politicians and how they’ve fooled pinoys for years, sort of mirror the current situation.
NEWS5 will do this again this 2019 as part od their electoral-advocacy campaign and Bilang Pilipino. NEWS5 will be concentrating on the social media power of Filipinos and what wonders likes, comments and shares does in the eve of proliferation of fake news, fooling much of the populace hook line and sinker. This also includes online trolls and how it has proliferated over the years that spread lies, malicious stories done to mar someones reputation. It’s time to call them out via their 2019 advocacy campaign called #TolWagTroll, Respeto Lang. This is to think twice about how to hone one’s behavior, digital or not.
Stay tuned as NEWS5 showcase #TolWagTroll Rap De-Battles hosted by Raffy Tulfo and PH’s rapper Loonie, Flict-G, J-King, Jonas, Lhip Kram, M Zhayt and Poison 13. Using words through their craft, rap battles will ensue as they dish out their views and opinions, exciting!
