CMFR chair: Duterte and his men are the problems not media
According to Inquirer, the Chairman of the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) said that the complaints of President Rodrigo Duterte of being misunderstood or taken out of context for his statements and remarks should not be blamed to the media, but to the people around him.
In an interview, of ABS-CBN, CMFR Chairman Vergel Santos said,
“The media is not in the business of imagining… The problem is his own people don’t seem to understand him."
Santos explained that the journalist were only reporting what was coming out of the President's mouth.
“We report what the President says. We don’t have to go to someone else to interpret what he says,” Santos said.

“It’s not for the media to help them. It’s for them to help themselves. Our business is to report the President, what he says and what he does,” he added.
Santos explained that Duterte himself was the problem, because he “cannot stop himself and he does not seem to be open to coaching and counseling.”
