Although it is true that there are authors who are biased, keep in mind that there also a LOT of people who participate in ‘Marcos revisionism’. I would rather listen to primary sources aka the ones who lived during the martial law bc they are the eye witnesses.
At the end of the day, authors, primary sources and historians are way more credible than the random people who have no expertise on history. You can’t publish a book officially w/o undergoing fact-checking and proofreading. Falsification is illegal and you can be sued with that
Exactly. Published literatures, especially those by credible individuals and institutions undergo rigorous fact-checking and peer reviews. The fact that some people rely on unvalidated internet articles instead of books is just, well, dumb.
