What next for the Philippines’ DISCREDITED mainstream corporate news media?

The Philippines’ mainstream news media is in a death spiral. Many of the country’s top media outfits led by ABS-CBN, Rappler, the Philippine Daily Inquirer, and even relatively professional CNN Philippines went for broke in this year’s elections. They bet their entire reputations on the campaign of now-failed Yellowtard presidential candidate Leni Robredo. They tossed all semblance of objectivity out the window and took part in the solidarity-in-desperation that characterised Robredo’s campaign particularly in the final weeks leading to the 9th of May.

Following all that, the buzzword among the stragglers in the aftermath of the landslide win of administration tandem Bongbong Marcos and Sara Duterte is “disinformation”. Marcos and Duterte, the losers insist, won on the back of a “disinformation campaign” — one mounted on a “massive” scale, they screech. In essence, the Yellowtards are attempting to gaslight the majority electorate into believing they were victims of a vast conspiracy to mislead them. To make things worse, key personalities employed by the very news organisations that now suffer severe crises of credibility remain unable to reflect on the self-inflicted damage to their priceless reputations seeing that they continue to amplify the baseless assertions of the partisan camps they evidently remain loyal to.

So where to for these media organisations who now suffer a colossal loss of face not to mention their place at the top of the pedestal they built for themselves and directed the audience they once monopolised to bow to? The credibility void their folly created is now rapidly being filled by new players — enabled by the very social media platforms they sought to police (an act of hubris that also contributed to further losing the trust of the Filipino people).

Mainstream media have to face reality — they need to compete for credibility in today’s hyper-competitive mass communication landscape. If it is the “disinformation” bogey they are worried about, they need to get over that phantom and, instead, focus on proving to an audience who enjoy an abundance of information channels to tune into that theirs is the real deal. Ultimately, however, the public has sole power to decide who is and who isn’t that real deal. No amount of fashioning one’s self to be “official fact checkers” and, believing so, presume to act as Disinformation Police will win back the trust of the public. Only the better brand will.

It is now a cliché but there is no denying the reality of the free market of ideas. The alternative is a policed market of the sort that “fact checkers” Maria Ressa of Rappler and Ellen Tordesillas of VERA Files aspire to institute on Facebook. Unfortunately for them Facebook is but one of many options for information dissemination that ordinary people are at liberty to sign up to. To count on policing the Net as being even possible and stubbornly hanging on to that notion is the sort of thing that, in all ironies, loses one precious ground. Issuing a label against a worthy opponent rather than competing with her head-to-head for worth in the sporting manner the free market demands is a comfy space Disinformation Crybabies prefer to inhabit. Yet again they had lost an entire people because of that laziness.

  1. The reality is they will never learn as they have no idea why they lost. Lucky we don’t have a Dictator otherwise they would fail to exist. It’s the same thing with Mainstream Media all over the world its there fault in the 1st place for pushing the partial views onto the masses!!

  2. It’s all about money whether the majority will listen to them or not, negative news gets more clicks than positive news. That’s just how it is.

    1. I think both sides, yellow/pink and red, engaged in disinformation campaign in the last election. Why? Both have extreme, fanatical, dingbats and just plain crazy followers.

      Every election always has a mixture of disinformation coming from all sides, with or without the help of corporate media. And in this day and age, where everybody is a media, including crackpots, to pinpoint accusations and lay blame in the mainstream media exclusively is just plain wrong. ?

      1. The fake narrative is obviously coming from the yellowtards and pinktards and the left and the faggot priests.

        That is very obvious.

        CPP NPA SALOT SA LIPUNAN.

      2. “…to pinpoint accusations and lay blame in the mainstream media exclusively is just plain wrong.”

        Fair enough as alternative media are also capable of misinformation.
        Just that mainstream media is very likely to cause misinformation yet suffer way less consequences than the alternatives, and have no problem in saying they are the most trusted source of information “in the service of the Filipino” (not intended to point at a certain media group).

        1. So who questions mainstream media if it “is very likely to cause misinformation yet suffer way less consequences than the alternatives, and have no problem in saying they are the most trusted source of information ‘in the service of the Filipino'”?

          It seems to me the answer should be the Filipino people, who will eventually figure out if they are being told the truth or lied to by mainstream media, in spite of the latter’s claim that “they are the most trusted source of information, ‘in the service of the Filipino.'”

          And just like the majority of the population that voted for who they want to lead their country for the next 6 years, they should also have a say so on which media network, mainstream or alternative, they want to deliver the news and forms of entertainment at their doorstep.

          Yes, they’ve been doing that since ’86. Thank you! ?

        3. @Juanita “Gwapita” Luna. Yea, since 1986, when gay “People’s Power” allowed the Lopezes’ ABS-CBN portray the Marcoses in a bad light so they can takeover. You’re probably still a gay sperm in your father’s testicles when all that faggotry of the EDSA Revolution was taking place.

  3. Definitely agree with you all!! You just gotta trust people have got common sense when reading news and checking different sources too!

    1. You can’t trust the Filipino masses’ common sense when their sources of reality is controlled by the Yellow Liberals’ mainstream media, the Catholic Churches, and left-wing academia. You just can’t when the masses prefer to watch ABS-CBN and GMA instead of read.

  4. If the mainstream media only told the truth, without bias ( which they didnt )

    convincing people should be the least of their worries.

    People know their products.

    The better, more real products ALWAYS wins out in the end.

    31 MILLION over and out.

    1. Mainstream media will whore its service to anyone for the right price. Since “Chinoy” Yellowtards own ABS-CBN (Lopezes) and GMA (Gozon), it’s a walk in the park to brainwash the masses to liberal thinking. All these Yellowtard networks need to do is show off imported “mestizo” celebrities in their movies for the women to go “goo goo gaga” over, or make Vice Ganda smooch with his boyfriend in television shows to get Juanita “Gwapita” Luna and Darth Mortis the Dumbass feel empowered, and they will have the mindset of the people in their hands to do what they please.

        Give an example. ?

        Or you’re just another dingbat screaming fire in a movie house. ?

        1. Here’s a good example:

          Juanita “Gwapita” Luna with his ABS-CBN and GMA brand of liberal faggotry.

        2. “Or you’re just another dingbat screaming fire in a movie house. ?”— Juanita “Gwapita” Luna.

          And you’re just another faggot princess who screams when you see your icon Vice Ganda having dirty fantasies over Derek Ramsey or Gerald Anderson in the movies.

      They reported the truth that BBM won the election, is that a problem? ?

    1. Yup. Thank God for the guerilla-style conservative, social media bloggers voicing out the people’s growing dissatisfaction with the liberal mainstream media’s long-standing influence, that has done nothing to better the country, nor their lives, for more than 3 decades after Martial Law.

      1. “Thank God for the guerilla-style conservative…” – Aeta

        What is that? And what is a conservative? One who lives in a conservatory? ???!

      1. No, but you are. A candidate for Vice Ganda’s mainstream faggotry. That’s why you’re upset to see ABS-CBN and GMA go.

        1. “Is that the one where you and Megget are judges? ????!” — Juanita Cock

          Your stupid line makes as much sense as seeing Noynoy “Abnoy” Aquino’s face appear on a “Queer as a 3-Peso Bill.”

  5. “What next for the Philippines’ DISCREDITED mainstream corporate news media?” —- Benign0

    Out of business, I hope. Instead, more conservative media network and social bloggers in place to teach the masses country building mindsets and skills.

  6. In this internet age in a democratic country of ours, there is no such thing as “sources of reality is controlled by mainstream media, Catholic Church and left-wing academia (but no right-wing nuts ha? Syarap! ? ). If we are under a dictatorship, yes, that may be true but right at this moment? Stop hallucinating!!!

    You can’t trust the Filipino masses for common sense? Well, we just had a successful election. No violence, no mass cheating, no protests on the streets because of rigged election. Maybe you should examine yourself if there is still common sense in you.

    ABS-CBN and GMA? Go ahead, close them. If you cannot stand legit criticisms from media, close them all! That is what you have been missing since 1986 and now that you have your bet as president, go ahead, close everything you dislike and be under dictatorship again!

    Only problem is, it’s not gonna happen. ???

    1. If your liberal gayness doesn’t think the mainstream media, the Catholic Church, and left-wing academia do not influence the population to dissent and divide, instead of unite as one country and one people, then you’ve been stuffing your oral and anal orifices with your boyfriends’ “kielbasas” for far too long, and you’re not letting enough oxygen reach your brain.

        You mean, you mother’s boyfriend did that to her? Really? ?

        1. You’re just jealous because she’s got 3 orifices to stuff and still let enough oxygen in. Just “Go Fund Me” and raise the money to get the extra hole put in. Your gender transformation will be completed and you won’t need Vice Ganda for empowerment.

        5. We’re talking past tense, when she was alive, “Cockaphiliac.” You’ll never be able to look at her (pictures) the same way.

        6. And my mother was buried in Africa. You mean, a necrophiliac will travel that far?

          Why not just go to La Loma cemetery, it’s near and cheap, necrophiliac! ?

    Mainstream media out of business? Are you crazy?

    Hope pa more! ???

    1. I know your gayness will be upset once Vice Ganda is off the air because he is your source of empowerment. But the country does not need his faggotry broadcasted on the air. The same way we don’t need your version of Vice Ganda on GRP.

  8. LOL aeta and megget worshiping the fake news bloggers in tiktok. Bunch of dumbass sheep. Don’t forget to ask for your piece of tallano gold.

    What mainstream media has to do is just what it always does… report the FACTS.

    Eventually when BBM turns everything to shit. Not even trash bloggers like benigno can hide the truth.

    Hopefully it doesn’t come down to a dictatorship. I bet aeta and megget wouldn’t even fight for the country. They are the true yellows, yellow as in chicken. But more likely chicken shit.

    Don’t reply back to me aeta tae. Don’t want to hear about your dick and cum fantasies.

    1. You and your boyfriend, Miss “Juanita” Cock (Juan-need-a-Cock), must stay up all night “dicktating” each other for a good “cumback”, and still come up with the same shitty lines that make up most of the content inside your soiled diapers. What a Dickhead.

      1. Aeta the Necro, take your concussion medication before you post on this blog. ?

      1. Nope, you back up nothing. You continue to refuse to take your concussion medication, that is why.

        Try again, you might hit it next time. ?

        1. To a Vice Ganda-brainwashed gay-fag like yourself, there’s no need for further backups. Your anal and oral drain pipes are already backed up from what your boyfriends left last night.

    WHY DO YOU ALLOW this benigno the clown?!?!? Is this the type of trash mentality you bring with you to Australia?

    Silence is violence Benigno the clown. By not saying anything as webmaster you CONDONE homophobia on your website

      1. Seeing Vice Ganda hugging a teddy bear in his pink pajamas, while his boyfriend rubs his shoulders on national television, is nothing short of “Toxic Homosexuality.” I’m sure the left-wing, activist priest (Robert Reyes) can overlook that display of faggot liberalism as he goes after BBM’s presidency.

      All aeta can talk about is dick, cum and vice ganda. You should shut the fuck up and let the adults speak. Sit down son.

      But nobody is answering my question. Why is benigno living in Australia campaigning hard for bbm?

      It’s because he is a paid hack of the marcoses.

      Your silence is the answer benigno the clown

      1. And you are unpaid, am i correct ?

        So you mean to say you defend the faggot liberals, for nothing..?

        You probably spent your own money too, to join the pink wave “mamot” rallies..being a self styled faggot millionaire ( in pesos, though.
        philippine not mexican, not to say that its bad or anything) to support an utterly unwinnable and flaky candidate.

        Now thats dumb.
        just dumb.

        Because emus and kangaroos, why he lives in Australia and why he’s there is none of our business. That’s too personal. I’m pretty sure any paid hack don’t have any pledged allegiance to any politicians other than to cause disinformation and such because it’s business. It generates you money.

  12. Also, the benign one doesnt have to campaign hard for bbm.
