Front page of Philippine Daily Inquirer CRAMMED with fluff pieces about Noynoy Aquino!

Above is a screenshot of the online edition of the Inquirer as of the 25th June 2021. It’s got all sorts of fluff pieces about the late former President Noynoy Aquino who died yesterday, the 24th.

The Philippine press is no longer on the Filipino people’s side

Growing up, I read the Bulletin Today, Times Journal and Daily Express. These were the broadsheets in circulation for a “martial law” baby such as I. Newscasts then were perfunctory. The news was read without any commentary, in English. If you wanted the news in the vernacular, there was the AM radio stations. The shift […]

Inquirer columnist @RicHeydarian PLAGIARISED @Inq_Opinion columnist Conrado de Quiros!

Richard Heydarian is absolutely beaming with pride over his “clever” piece, Duterte’s independent foreign policy published on the Inquirer today (link to Inquirer online here). Trouble is, it seems the content of his article plagiarises an earlier piece published on the 5th January 2004 edition of the Inquirer authored by the eminent columnist Conrado de […]

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 […]

2017 “Person of the Year” awarded to @PinoyAkoBlog by @Inquirerdotnet in hindsight following #PABoost-gate

In 2017, a huge battle was fought by Filipino soldiers […]

I requested Inquirer editor @jnery_newsstand to comment on the @PinoyAkoBlog #PABoostNga circus, but he couldn’t be bothered to respond

I found it kind of strange that the retired Editor-in-Chief of the venerable Philippine Daily Inquirer would issue a public greeting to Yellowtard blogger Jover Laurio referring to her coming wedding knowing full well that a public tweet is fair game for anyone to respond to. So I thought I’d do just that and respond […]
