PNoy damaged the Supreme Court when he appointed Lourdes Sereno Chief Justice in 2012

Since way back in 2012, the disturbing results of Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno’s psychiatric evaluation, her inability to earn the respect of her peers in the high court, her non-compliance to rules regarding disclosure of her personal assets and liabilities, and the questionable motivation behind her appointment as Chief Justice by then President Benigno Simeon […]

Sereno must resign for the sake of the Filipino people

For the sake of the nation, current Chief Justice of the Philippine Supreme Court Lourdes Sereno should resign immediately.

When there are so many pressing issues to write about, it gets so confusing sorting out which one to prioritise.

But on the other, it is difficult to forgive people in general who, […]

How @rapplerdotcom triggered the decline of journalism in the Philippines

It’s the buzz of the week. Manila Times columnist Rigoberto ‘Bobi’ Tiglao and Rappler are at war. It started with Tiglao’s eye-opening revelations on the sloppy — and borderline fraudulent — reporting by Rappler on the issue of the so-called “extrajudicial killings” (EJKs) supposedly running rampant in the Philippines.

Today’s “fake news” is revenge for 30 years of Yellow lies and hypocrisy

According to the Inquirer Editor, camps aligned (loosely or tightly) with the Philippines’ Opposition are “fighting back”. Leading this “fight”, they claim, is “vice president” Leni Robredo who has seemingly taken it up upon herself to serve as the Opposition’s mouthpiece from within Malacanang.
