This front page layout by the Philippine Star today is clearly a deliberate attempt to mislead Filipino readers into thinking that a forecast number of COVID cases to hit the Philippines in May issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO) is related to a massive Bongbong Marcos – Sara Duterte rally held in Cebu City.
The Manila Standard in a report on the rally quotes Gov. Gwen Garcia who estimated the crowd at 300,000 which coincides with the unrelated WHO report.
Interesting that PhilSTAR would go attack dog mode on a Marcos – Duterte rally while keeping silent on similar rallies organised by the camp of Yellowtard presidential candidate “vice president” Leni Robredo. This habitual selectiveness and downright dishonesty is the reason mainstream “news” media organisations have lost all credibility. Filipinos can no longer count on them for relevant and fact-based information no matter how much they prop up their flagging brands.
