“The truth shall set you free.”
This is the sublime message of retired radio and TV broadcaster Jay Sonza to the mainstream, especially to the Philippine Daily Inquirer and Leni Robredo who made the ‘Pieta’ like photo of murdered alleged drug pusher Michael Siaron as the poster photo for extra-judicial killings in the local and international front.
A year later, the authorities found out after ballistics examination from a recovered firearm that he was killed by a member of a syndicate also involved in the illegal drug trade. [Mon Cualoping]
The dramatic photo captured the wife of Siaron cradling the lifeless body of her husband in her loving arms, mimicking the Pieta sculpture of Michelangelo showing the Virgin Mary cradling the lifeless body of Jesus Christ.
In reaction to the breaking news, Jay Sonza took to Facebook wondering if the mainstream media would issue a mea culpa statement to the public for feeding them with fake news.
Jay Sonza’s post read:
“the truth shall set you free”
ang litratong ito na mala “pieta” ang ginamit ng Philippine daily inquirer, abs-cbn, rappler, gma at iba pang mga radio, tv at newspapers, kasama pa ang mga tutol sa “war on drugs.” bilang patunay daw ng EJK.
lumabas din ang katotohanan ng mahuli ang tunay na salarin. sindikato sa droga ang gumawa.do you remember what I wrote about one or two weeks ago. ito ang sample ng “sicario” – the process of eliminating competition in drug trade.
gagawa kaya ng public apology ang mga propagators ng maling balita, kabilang na si Atty. Leny Robredo na gumamit din sa larawang ito sa kanyang video report to the united nations.
I don’t expect it. but I know deep inside you, you made the biggest intellectual dishonesty. it is between you and your conscience and your god, if you have one.
Netizen Weng GB remarks: “My cousin died just recently,shot in the head,accdg. to his brother he did not remit the money ,they were calling texting him so nag lie low sia,but his friend got mad..so i really believe na talagang nangyayari yan sila sila nag papatayan”
Hailey Espina asks: “Bakit hindi na headline na mali sila. Dapat meron headline. Mali kmi hindi pala EJK kundi kapwa addict ang pumatay”
