Memes have become a potent weapon in online campaigns for the upcoming May 9 elections. But not all memes shared online contain accurate facts. In fact, many of the contents are lies, just like this meme about presidential candidate Mar Roxas and his wife, Korina Sanchez.
The meme also contains what was portrayed to be a quote from American journalist Anderson Cooper. The quote reads, “When I heard that this corrupt couple are running for office, may God help the Philippines.”
Notice the grammar error? Would a seasoned journalist and a native English speaker commit such a blunder?
But beyond the grammar mistake, you might want to click on to know what the person involved has to say about this quote, which has been spread online.
