DISHONEST journalism: @Inquirerdotnet repackages @TeddyboyLocsin tweet on Kris Aquino #PABoost scandal into “news”


Trust the Inquirer to issue a dishonest and downright lazy “report” on the recently-raging issue of revelations surrounding Kris Aquino’s financial ties with Yellowtard blogger Jover Laurio and possibly other Netizens.

They classify their latest report under “Entertainment” and use the dishonest headline Kris Aquino’s critics just envious, says Locsin, which, evidently is meant to pass off a quote from a tweet issued by Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr as “news”.

MANILA, Philippines — Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. on Tuesday slammed critics attacking Actress Kris Aquino, saying: “People against Kris are just fucking envious of her wealth, her looks, her work ethic -She never stops working, her success and her pedigree. Period.”

Note too that the Inquirer editors seem to have allowed an article containing offensive words to pass approval for publication.

My virgin eyes! 😮

Indeed, “journalistic” standards are going down the tubes even within the Philippines’ premiere broadsheet and online news portal.

It’s no wonder Big Corporate Mainstream News Media are in the midst of a huge crisis of relevance and credibility. They no longer report the news objectively. They report the news selectively!
