According to Rappler’s exclusive interview with Lauren Greenfield, Greenfield said that people should remember the happenings in history. People should be aware and informed about the past to prevent it from happening again in the future.
During the exclusive interview, Lauren Greenfield reminds the Filipino citizens to be cautious as manipulation of information is rampant.
The dissemination of false information could impact the elections.
