Here’s why Ed Lingao is no match for Mocha Uson’s journalism…

I find it rich the way members of the Philippines’ community of “journalism” professionals could be so precious about what is and what isn’t “journalism”. That is in considering that very few of them can be considered to be exemplars of journalism practice to begin with. Nonetheless, here is the esteemed Ed Lingao, journalist extraordinaire, […]

Are The Youth Still The Hope Of The Philippines?

I remember that the great Jose Rizal, the Philippines’ greatest hero according to our history books, said something about the youth being the hope of our country. Indeed, we are not the only culture to view the next generation as such. Unfortunately, in this day and age, I can no longer agree with this sentiment […]

Duterte highlights Philippine media’s own lewd and hypocritical behaviour

I read a very disturbing article from one of Rappler’s writers. It’s disturbing because, firstly, it was published by a media outlet read by thousands of impressionable young Filipinos. And, two, it is disturbing because it is proof that a lot of Filipinos do not have the right principles that can steer them in the […]

Philippine Corporate Media have FAILED the Filipino people

As of this writing, President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has pretty much slammed the door on the face of the Philippines’ clique of for-profit Corporate Media “journalists” and now relies on state-owned (not-for-profit) People’s Television (PTV4) Network and Radio Television Malacañang (RTVM) for the issuance of public updates. Every “journalist” and her dog is screaming bloody “censorship”. […]

4 New Shocking Twists In Popular Fictional Characters

How Idolatry Prevents Progress In The Philippines

So people call me out on the harshness of my choice of words, my alleged “arrogance” and my tendency to berate the public figures they worship. Truth be told though, I don’t really blame them. For all intents and purposes, I will admit to the fact that I tend to choose very scathing remarks. Unfortunately, […]

President Rodrigo Duterte will replace the Church and ‘civil society’ as the nation’s champion of Equality

Here we are debating whether the catcall and wolf whistle of President-Elect Rodrigo Duterte (DU30) was sexist or not. Okay, let us debate it for whatever lessons it might give us, but to have it as one of our headline news? Aren’t we losing focus on the biggest problem? Oh, I forgot, it involved one […]

Like Rodrigo Duterte, Singapore’s late PM Lee Kuan Yew also spoke about Philippine media’s failures

It has been a busy few weeks for members of Philippine media. Their love affair with incoming President Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte seems to have ended abruptly. Some members of local and even foreign media have called on their colleagues to boycott covering Duterte until he apologises for his remarks about media killings. Apparently, […]
