What should journalists do to counter fake news?

Confirm the information to various sources. The government should also uphold the law, lest people will not be mindful of their actions.

The saddest thing, in my opinion, is not fake news though. It’s when a news is accused as fake.

Is Indonesian media capable of countering fake news?

Yes, thanks to the diversity among Indonesians we naturally check and recheck information. Realistically speaking, is there a perfect media? Look at the United States of America!

What does Indonesian press need to improve?

Their own selves. There’s no need to teach other what to do, just improve each of our selves first.
