Media & Events portal launched, in a battle against false news

14 Mar 2017
CYBERJAYA, 14 March 2017 --- The Communications and Multimedia Ministry (KKMM) in collaboration with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) today launched, an information verification portal, in its effort to combat the spreading of false news which is becoming more rampant of late.

Through this portal, members of the public can check and report news items which have not been authenticated through the link, which they received either through social media, short messaging services, blogs or websites to enable it to be verified by official channels or the relevant government agencies involved.

In this context, the news encompasses those of public interest as well as those which may affect national harmony and security.

This is another part of the enforcement and awareness activities undertaken by MCMC to prevent the spread of false news.

The portal was officiated by Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Salleh Said Keruak, Minister of Communications and Multimedia.
