Karen Davila and Bernadette Sembrano Aguinaldo in pink: BIASED “news” anchors?

Posing in pink with colleague Bernadette Sembrano Aguinaldo then issuing a disclaimer on Instagram, “no malice please”. ABS-CBN News anchor Karen Davila thinks she can simply plug what had become a highly-politicised colour then insult the intelligence of her Filipino audience by claiming that “Pink just looks good on TV”. We all know of course […]

What Maria Ressa does NOT want the Filipino to know about Rappler and the Omidyar Network

Alexander Rubinstein and Max Blumenthal write about eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, in “How One of America’s Premier Data Monarchs is Funding a Global Information War and Shaping the Media Landscape”. With offices in Washington, Silicon Valley, and six foreign countries, the Omidyar Network propagates the neoliberal ideology of its billionaire namesake through “impact investing” and […]

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. Yellowtard media is certainly doing its darndest to make up for the absence of one of their key henchmen, […]

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.

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 […]
