He said it was a social responsibility, and to deal with misinformation, government and media efforts had to be aligned, even more so in conflicting circumstances.

Alcón insisted that the “misinformation” concerns the citizens. “For example, being afraid of Law 1386, which is a framework law with seven articles and an appendix,” he said.

In addition, he said that “they created this misinformation that we are going to affect the union brothers, the transporter brothers,” the official repeated.
