The mainstream media has been caught a countless times misquoting Duterte and for good reasons because either way, it generates buzz to their posts.
Speaking of which, GMA News is well on its way to the center of another brewing storm in social media for the same crime that made the Duterte supporters hate them in the first place.
Ira Panganiban’s tirade against GMA News stems from a GMA News article posted this morning, August 2, 2017 wherein they were caught misquoting the statement of Bureau of Customs Commissioner Nic Faeldon in the article headline.
Here’s what Panganiban wrote on Facebook:
Kumpletohin natin ang quote GMA7 para hindi confusing. Parang sinasabi ng quote niyo “continue to be loyal to me…” eh!!!
Eto yung buong quote:
“I do not need personal loyalty but I want you to continue to be loyal in this country.”
Merong “in this country” ano po!!!
Netizens join Ira Panganiban in giving GMA News a tongue lashing.
