The Philippine Daily Inquirer strikes again by maliciously slanting the absence of foreign donors coming to Northern Luzon in the wake of the devastation wrought by Typhoon “Lawin!”
The drive of the PDI article entitled, ‘No foreign aid yet for victims of Typhoon Lawin’ is to “paint the situation as an outcome of Duterte’s stance and we are being punished by it,” Dr. Antonio Contreras says.
“And why do we have to expect foreign aid when we have funds to deal with the problem?” Dr. Contreras wonders. “This culture of mendicancy is simply offensive. Except that we know the line of Inquirer since we are not born yesterday,” the fuming professor continued.
As flaring tempers rise, he reminds the public that this is the same newspaper that slanted the latest survey result showing Robredo outdid Duterte, which he said is a lie.
This is the same newspaper that published the lie that Robredo topped the Pulse Asia survey and has not apologized for it yet.
Meanwhile, Kristy Manuel agrees with the Philippine Daily Inquirer and says:
Now look what you’ve done Mr. President!This is an example of the effects of Du30s tirades and badmouthing of the US, EU, UN, Australia and other foreign allies. Now it’s the Filipinos who have to live with your careless rantings, attacks, and foul speech. Shame on you!
On one hand, Zyriel James has a different take on the issue. Let us read his comment below.
The reason why foreign aids are not as much are as follows 1. they were not happy with how yolanda funds were used. with such massive amount and how our government used it is an indication that we cant handle aids without corruption. 2. the government prepared the people and evacuated then as necessary while in yolanda people stayed indoors and was left to kill. we are now a little prepared for typhoons like this. 3. the government is working hard to stretch whatever resources we can get from our own funds. foreign aid will always be available, it wont go away. we should be happy that despite not having foreign aids, there are less casualties and the government was able to provide bit by bit.
so why are some people ranting?
1. nasanay ang pinoy na humingi.
2. hindi bilib ang oinoy sa kakayanan ng gobyerno niya at nais lamang iasa sa ibang bansa ang lahat.
3. kinakawawa ng pinoy ang sarili niya ngayong hindi naman siya kawawa, pinaghihigpit lamang ng sinturon e akala moy ikamamatay na niya,
e tanong din natin ang media ngayong magaling naman silang mag sesationalized, sana ibalita nyo ng todo tong mga nasalanta ng bagyo, puro kasi kaau paninira sa presidente .

Siguro mas maganda kung huwag ng pansinin anoman ang gustong gawin ng Inquirer or the least we can get back is boycott this media.
Yes! BOYCOTT INQUIRER! “Balance News” daw! Ito ang pinaka bias.
we should be proud that even if in the absence of foreign aid ,,we were able to survive and the government assistance is just enough to help these people..in quirer..you did it again..maligning our president..strike 2 ka na..prof.contreras is right..your headline about leni robredo,s rating connoted something..that the filipinos trust robredo more than the president..by intentionally skipping the news of the president has got 85 percent trust rating..you are certif ied presstitute..shame on you..
Should we burn it. They fuck the people up and they dont even get a slap in the hand. They always get away with their crimes. So let me ask you all once again, when will we all decide to burn it?
Let us boycott the INQ.
I am proud of our President! I trust him! I believe he knows what he is doing! No president has achieve and done so much change for this country in just 100 days! And i am glad there was no aid from other country when Lawin struck because of PRRD’s leadership, it shows to the world we can stand and live without aid! Oh, btw, we survived several calamities already without the aids because all those supposedly called foreign aids for the victims did not reach them, instead it went to the pockets of politicians!
Which is so True,,Noon, sa Yolanda,Ang daming tulong na nanggaling sa buong Mundo,nasaan ang mga yon?,Saan dinala ng Aquino Administration,Yong mga pera,ibinulsa,at ang mga goods,may nakapagsabi ,na klinaclassified muna,kkunin ang mga magaganda at ang napagpilian,yong ang ipapamigay and mostly all if it went to waste dahil hinayaang mabulok lang,,pati mga bigas. WHY not ,ibigay na lang na kahin kahin sa mga tao,at yong mga bigas,tig iisang saki hindi yong,bibigyan lang ng isaing maghapon,, It is so Heartbreaking ,lalo na kung pinapasama nila sa Media ang ating Pangulo, I know behind all of this Bias media ay under the Yellow Oligarchs,,They have to mived on,,kumbaga,tapos na silaBut anyway,I always PRAY to all our GODS that they will protect our President,bless him mire healthy life,kept him away from any Harm,and Bless him to continue all his Plan to keep our Country Philippine clean and great
Sorry typing errors, What i mean,is sako sakong bigas sana ang ibigay sa mga tao,at isang kahon na mga relief goods,,
sana nga magising na ang dilaw na wala na tao gusto magpaloko sa kanila.
Agree ako Ruth, nasaan ang foreign aid ng Yolanda?
Dapat mging masaya p din tayo sa kbila ng unos n dumating dahil nandito p din ang bansang pilipinas at ang lahing pilipino. Tama ng bangayan lets just help one another & build a better future for generations to come.
Kung sa awa ng Diyos, kinaya ng a ting gobyerno ang mag bigay sa mga nasalanta, bakit pa tayo hihingi sa ibang Bansa?
tell that to the victims.
test, is it moderated garbage or not?
Freedom!!!! mabuhay ang dugong maharlika!
Changes will not come if we continue to practice the old conduct. Why expect assistance from other nations when our country is now capable of surviving thru its own resources. Wala na kasing mga timawang leaders gaya nuong nakaraan na puro swapang at timawa. Without corruption, we can even share some of our relief goods to other countries experiencing crisis. Time to rise up and reverse the old trend. Mabuhay ang mga tunay na Pilipino!
Di na kailangan ng foreign aid, KAYA naman natin. Bakit ka pa hihingi kung meron ka naman? Mga YELLOW talaga oh. Walang foreign aid pero compered mo sa Yolanda, nako mas organize ngayon.
What do you expect from gma daily inquirer abscbn to report the truth when people like concio and prieto are members of the gerry roxas foundation where millions of dollare were given in terms of usaid. Money talks in our major media newspaper now a days.
I was an avid reader of Inquirer way back d martial law years and aftr.but n0w i find it dsgusting,that this 0nce trustd newspaper has n0w changed its views
