This statement tweeted by Richard Heydarian is proof that this self-appointed “thought leader” is partisan. As a political pundit, one should just be telling it like it is.
Usually travel half of the year round the world for talks and lectures. Honestly, explaining DUTERTE FOREIGN POLICY these days is… just purely embarassing ?
To be embarrassed by someone’s foreign policy means one is disappointed it doesn’t fit one’s personal narrative and bias towards or against something. Heydarian should stick to facts.
Why would anyone feel embarrassed about the President’s foreign policy? It actually promotes a diplomatic approach to dealing with a highly sensitive issue. Only those who are strongly against China would feel embarrassed.
Heydarian inadvertently admitted that he is not a reliable source of insight and information. His bias against Duterte and China muddles rather than clarifies the issues he seeks to highlight.
In life, things are not always what they seem.
