Leni Robredo is the Philippines’ biggest gaslighter — probably suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder

I thought this was a column piece of substance considering its author is a former Secretary of Foreign Affairs. In “The social media imperative” published on the Philippine Star, Roberto Romulo writes of “trolls”… “It was these ‘warriors’ on social media who delivered the presidency to Duterte, who won with over 16.6 million votes–convincingly and […]

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 […]

F Sionil Jose likens Duterte to Magsaysay, Philippine Opposition OFFENDED!

Public intellectuals give their opinions so the people can decide which side to take. The “esteemed” Philippine Star writer Joel Pablo Salud likes to think of himself as being at par with top national artist F. Sionil Jose in a rant he posts on Facebook where he writes of Jose… His influence as national artist […]

False Philippine claim to Whitsun Reef resources led to Chiara Zambrano “banca” stunt

Bobi Tiglao’s Manila Times column today lends credence to that staged chase between the “banca” of Chiara Zambrano and the Chinese Navy fast attack boat but I don’t think that the Secretary of Foreign Affairs and the Secretary of National Defense are deliberately sabotaging the President by painting him in a corner. Nonetheless Tiglao asserts […]

Chiara Zambrano WPS stunt highlights the DISHONESTY of ABS-CBN “journalism”

Following up on John Mangun’s editorial the other day about how journalists in the practice of their profession have forgotten the basic tenets or disregarded the same… Journalism has deteriorated to the point that it is often unrecognizable from propaganda and disinformation. Investigative journalism used to start with “Let’s see where this leads us.” Currently, […]

Caught on video: ABS-CBN vehicle refuses to give way to emergency response team!

Is this acceptable behaviour for media personnel in the midst of what is clearly an emergency situation where qualified and authorised personnel should be given priority access to? Apparently the chi chi folk at ABS-CBN think it is seeing how they ignore the pleas coming from the driver of an emergency response vehicle to let […]

Leni Robredo is NOT a “quiet worker”. ABS-CBN reports a LIE!

A “report” published by ABS-CBN News recently claiming that “vice president” Leni Robredo is a “quiet worker” is a lie. The “news” article which indicates “ABS-CBN News” as its author quotes Robredo’s spokesperson Barry Gutierrez who was defending Robredo’s office amidst the PR fallout following a Pulse Asia report on Robredo’s dismal approval ratings. “Hindi […]

Maria Ressa showed her arrogance during her interview with Stephen Sackur of HardTalk.

I finally had a chance to listen to the whole podcast of BBC journalist Stephen Sackur’s interview with Maria Ressa in his program HardTalk. Sackur did manage to ask some hard questions, which Ressa simply tried to dodge. She did not answer the questions directly. She kept insisting President Rodrigo Duterte’s popularity is a product […]

Reuters-Oxford report ranks Rappler with Abante and Bulgar among LEAST TRUSTED news media outlets!

A report used in a piece published by a certain Yvonne Chua of the University of the Philippines showed that Rappler was among the least trusted brands in Philippine news media. The report, published by the University of Oxford and the Reuters Institute showed Rappler alongside tabloid publications Abante and Bulgar at the bottom of […]

ORCHESTRATED promotion of Maria Ressa’s plight DOMINATES Philippine media!

As expected, Rappler is again using its trademark lazy style of “journalism” (cherry-picking tweets) and promoting its own CEO, Maria Ressa’s agenda in time for a critical court decision to be handed out tomorrow (Monday) on a case involving her. This is the sort of CROOKED journalism that is killing mainstream news media! Ressa’s “allies” […]
