Media intentionally misleading people?

Netizens are so fed up with internet and its madness. Some even believe that half of what the internet say is fake. A journalist named Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman made it clear in her blog titled ‘50% of the Internet is Fake”. In her blog she gave examples of how a simple tweets can made the internet lost their minds. You can’t entrust your life in the internet; You’re asking for a death wish.

There’s a rumor that the Philippine Broadcasting Companies have been misleading people by feeding them wrong information using the internet, television, radio, and newspapers. And today, we all have witnessed one:


On September 5, Monday, the Internet ones again set on fire as the recent news reported ‘Duterte called Barrack Obama a Son of a Whore’ in a conference.

If you still remember, Duterte promised he will control his mouth and cannot be rude because he will be representing the Philippines. As true citizens of the Philippine Republic, we are all well aware of how the corrupt people uses money to control things. even the leading broadcasting companies seem suspicious. We are also aware that our President is fierce and expressive. He is known to be very foul mouthed and vulgar with his words.

Now it all comes down to this question: Did the President REALLY called Barrack Obama a “son of a whore”?

If you just heard this gossip, read a couple of articles, and already concluded that he disrespected Barrack Obama, then I have a bad news for you. You have just been manipulated by our media, sir!.

If you missed a lesson back in your English subject, I’m pretty sure it’s the how to use comma -part. In his speech, he clearly said “You must be respectful. Do not just throw away questions and statements. Son of a whore, I will curse you in that forum.”

Did he meant Obama, or did he meant anyone who dares disrespect him with questions?

But in the medias’ reports, they’re saying as if the “son of whore” part was meant for Obama. If you missed the comma on his speech you can watch the video again and see for yourself.

Do you still remember the video of Claudine Barretto when she accidentally slipped and said the same magic word in a concert TV show? Did she intentionally meant the floor-directors for making the stage so slippery? Or the shoes perhaps? No, it’s an expression meant to be added on your statement. It is often caused by sudden burst of feelings. We Filipinos are just sometimes exaggerating things, while some are being payed to intentionally exaggerate them.
