Cambodia’s Ministry of Information is set to launch a live programme on the National Television of Kampuchea (TVK) channel in a bid to counter fake news.
In a meeting at the ministry on Monday, its minister, Khieu Kanharith, said fake news could “pollute the social atmosphere” and consequently lead to social chaos.
He ordered TVK to arrange a weekly programme to be broadcast live between one or two hours, during which guest speakers and officials from relevant institutions could verify facts to dispel fake news.
