“Pag nagsabi kayo, mga putang ina ninyo, sabihin ko mga putang ina ninyo rin….Inquirer, you have never been fair. Bastos kayo, pati ABS-CBN bastos kayo,” Duterte said about the two large media companies during his speech before members of the councilors’ league in Malacañang.
Duterte even described these media companies as “persons who have not seen any good in this world” after they kept reporting on negative news about Duterte.
The President also pointed out the time when these two media constantly aired Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s accusations against Duterte during the elections period in 2016 that he has amassed ill-gotten wealth that went undeclared in the President’s Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth.
That time, Duterte confidently retorted that he would resign if ever anyone shows up with proof on this supposed ill-gotten wealth.
How I would describe them—just tell them, that mayor said, you are a fucking shit,” Duterte said in his recent speech adding that “putang ina yang ABS-CBN.”
The two media companies even went as far as updating the public about Duterte’s health status after he celebrated his 72nd birthday.
“Kayong mga Prieto, kayong mga Lopez, ang mga lolo ninyo, hindi ba namatay?” Duterte rhetorically asked directed towards the owners of Inquirer and ABS-CBN, respectively.
“Mga bastos din kayo, sa totoo lang,” he added. “Ako maggawa ng programa sa PTV4, bastusin ko rin kayo.
Duterte also raised the issue of these media companies reporting on unverified information which tends to show their biases.
“Without checking the vercity, the truth… pag election na, pera-pera na… Mukhang pera yang putang ina yan,” he said.
Eventually Duterte remarked that press like them, “I do not need this at the time of my life.”
