Why mainstream media is unhappy: it has to compete with ordinary people in publishing fake news

I do not understand why some members of mainstream media everywhere around the world are complaining about the proliferation of what they call “fake news”. It’s not even clear what their definition of fake news is. As far as I know, fake news has been around since forever. They used to be called tabloid reports […]

PNP Chief Bato dela Rosa should resign to save his honour and protect the Duterte government

Can Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Ronaldo ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa control the men under his watch? There is enough evidence to say that he cannot.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is right not to trust current VP Leni Robredo

Current Vice President Leni Robredo has been constantly under fire from the public ever since she was declared the “winner” of the second highest position in Philippine government in the 2016 Presidential Elections.

Leni Robredo is clueless and it could be the reason Duterte doesn’t respect her

I don’t like tasteless jokes. So I agree with current Vice President Leni Robredo when she said “tasteless jokes have no place in society”. The problem is, who are we to judge how tasteless a joke is? None of us have a monopoly on authority to determine what constitutes a tasteless joke. People’s tastes are […]

SC approval of Marcos burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani proves the Aquinos are no heroes

The Philippine Supreme Court has finally issued its decision against the petition to block former President Ferdinand Marcos’s burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB) and the result was 9-5 in favour of allowing the burial.  As predicted, there are people weeping and gnashing their teeth in frustration.  Anti-Marcos rallies are being held as of this […]

To Trillanes: You did not complain when BS Aquino broke his promises

Convicted mutineer and now Senator Antonio Trillanes is appealing to the public not to turn a blind eye to current President Rodrigo Duterte’s habit of breaking his promises. According to Trillanes “there’s something wrong with the Filipino people when support for the President remains strong despite his frequent turnarounds from official pronouncements.” He cited Duterte’s […]
