Annisa Kartabrata, HI Unpar alumni of the class of 2008 and a news anchor for Metro TV, took the opportunity to share knowledge and experience to the HI students.

In addition to her experience in college, with the topic Fake News (Berita Palsu), Annisa described some knowledge based on the reality in the world of media where she currently works. By working as a journalist/press officer, she gained important information directly from the source thereby minimizing the occurrence of false news. Avoiding fake news also requires media sources that are clear and accurate, and being careful in selecting the news that will be used. According to her, progress and sophistication of the technology has become one of the factors of the emergence of fake news in the world community.
