Some members of mainstream media are the real enemies of the Filipino people

Who are the real enemies of the Filipino people? No, it’s not the Chinese nor Americans. In fact, we don’t need to look too far to see that the real enemies are Filipinos themselves – those who will do anything including betray their own countrymen just to achieve their own personal agendas.  They are rotten to […]

Lazy journalism: Is Filipino public sentiment really against Mocha Uson’s UST award?

So Mocha Uson plans to return her “Thomasian Alumni Award for Government Service” and University of Santo Tomas (UST) Alumni Association president Henry Tenedero has resigned following unfavourable “Netizens’ reactions”. Both are responses to the “public backlash” resulting from the latter granting this award to the earlier. Presumably, the so-called negative “Netizens’ reactions” is representative […]

You can’t destroy Mocha Uson by dragging her through the mud — because she’s already been there

The amount of time and space being given to the “issue” that is the awarding of distinction to Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson by the University of Santo Tomas (UST) Alumni Association is amazing. I may not be a big fan of the current Philippine Opposition and, specifically, the bloc of bozos who currently lead them, […]

Good Filipino Catholics agree: Mocha Uson deserves her UST award!

People who are frothing in the mouth over the University of Santo Tomas’s (UST) Alumni Association awarding Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson distinction for government service should just get over it. “Awards” by institutions nowadays have long been under blanket suspicion anyway. Data generated by social media activity had taken over as more reliable indicators of […]

Educators who are EMPLOYED by Catholic schools should make a CHOICE

I don’t buy this whole freedom of expression thing when it comes to speaking up about the RH Bill — not if I were employed by an institution of learning that affiliates itself with the Roman Catholic Church. Those outspoken professors enjoy the great pay (as far as educators go) in schools like the Ateneo, […]

UST ups the RH Bill ‘debate’ ante: Will Catholic university professors remain in the game?

Grand old University of Santo Tomas (UST), the Philippines’ most ancient institution of higher learning has come out and made a clear and absolute statement on its position on the Reproductive Health Bill through its school paper, the Varsitarian, and it is one that is expected of a Catholic learning institution. In RH bill, Ateneo, […]

Mahathir Mohamad on why the Philippines may suffer from a case of mediocre political leadership

Mediocre political leadership. These are the words Malaysian former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad used to describe a key possible pitfall of “unbridled democracy”. This he said in a speech he delivered on the occasion of his being conferred an Honorary Professor Title by the University of Santo Tomas. Mahathir also added that free-wheeling democracy can […]

The business of journalism: a challenge of making money without selling your soul

This is a similar problem I was trying to highlight when I responded to Irene (@mindanaoan) in a tweet with this: “That’s the trouble when society relies on altruism. [You] get into uncomfortable relationships. State services get less personal.” This is after she tweeted about how she “found out that Philip Morris – yep, […]
