An ABS-CBN reporter is in hot water after allegedly making the statement that it is not the job of the journalists to act as the government’s PR agents.
Chiara Zambrano allegedly issued the statement below in response to criticism that the mainstream media has been unfair to Duterte by churning out bad news after bad news against the government.
Zambrano’s statement did not escape the radar of presidential sister Jocellyn Duterte Villarica, meriting a harsh response on Facebook.
My dear Chiara Zambrano, hindi nga ninyo trabaho ang pabangohin ang administrasyon, pwede ko bang sabihin it’s the other way around?…ang problema hindi lang minsan, bias yung mga news releases ninyo. Hindi kami mga tanga na hindi accurate and objective ang reporting na nakukuha at naririnig ng taong-bayan, too bad my alternatibo na ngayon ang social media!
You are paid to do your job, agree? My question is yong reporting mo ba ay talagang for objectivity and the truth and nothing but the truth, yung walang halong
Politika? That would be impossible because you are paid to do what your doing, therefore, huwag magmalinis na wala kayong political color.
So huwag na tayong magplastikan, yung statement mo na hindi ninyo trabaho ang pabangohin ang administrasyon, hindi objective but subjective, coming from a journalist (ikaw) iba dating at tono … Hindi namam kailangan magpabango ang administrasyon, suportado cya ng taong-bayan… Sa totoo lang, ang mainstream media ang ayaw sa kanya, WHY kaya??? hhmmm..źzzzzzz
Netizen Dezere Tillada agrees with Jocellyn Duterte: “That is true madam Jocellyn Duterte Villarica, i red the post of Chiara & it seems she is one sided or biased to her opinions, actually halata nman. Oh poor girl alm nila kc na bestado na natin galawan nila. Should I say MEDIA (Ninja) moves!!!”
