NEEDS CONTEXT

A clip that shows Vice President Leni Robredo giving incorrect answers and failing to answer questions during a quiz in a radio show in 2016 is circulating on social media. The viral video needs context as it was edited deliberately to show only Robredo’s wrong answers.

The one-minute, 15-second-long video is carried by a Dec. 17 post of two-month-old Facebook (FB) page Jvee. Its caption said, “Halatang posisyon lang ang habol (She’s obviously only after the position)” and had two links that redirect to e-commerce sites.

The spliced clips of Robredo’s wrong answers were lifted from a short segment of a January 2016 interview-cum-quiz she had with DZMM TeleRadyo ahead of the May polls. The segment Testing Lang quizzed vice-presidential candidates on current events, Philippine history and general knowledge. Robredo answered 14 out of 18 questions correctly.

But featured in Jvee.’s inaccurate clip were only the four answers she got wrong, and one which she initially skipped but answered correctly later on.
