TV5 disowns an art card depicting Robredo defeating Marcos Jr., which went viral for the wrong reasons

According to TV5, an art card it uploaded online has been changed to depict Vice President Leni Robredo topping a presidential poll conducted by Publicus Asia.

TV5 stated in a Facebook post on Tuesday (November 2) that the proper art card showed former senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. as the candidate to beat in Publicus Asia's poll, with a 49.3 percent rating. Robredo came in second place with 21.3 percent.

“Nais linawin ng News5 na “altered” ang kumakalat na art card kung saan lumabas na nangunguna si Vice Pres. Leni Robredo sa election preferences survey ng Publicus Asia, Inc. Makikita sa tamang art card na nangunguna si dating senador Bongbong Marcos sa survey,” the Manny Pangilinan-owned network said.

TV5's Facebook post was accompanied by links to the proper art card and survey results.

Publicus Asia, in a second statement, asked people interested in examining the poll findings to do so directly on their website "to prevent misinterpretation and incorrect information."
