Deposed in a people's power revolution in 1986, the Marcos family became globally synonymous with corruption.
Independent reporting and court documents offer irrefutable proof of the massive excesses and human rights abuses during their rule.
But for years, Facebook has been awash with propaganda posts and anonymous accounts defending the Marcos family legacy.
This manipulation of the past has been so widespread that people parrot misinformation with absolute conviction.
Bongbong's running mate in the upcoming poll is 43-year-old Sara Duterte, daughter of current incumbent President Rodrigo Duterte.
