TV host laments 2k drug-related deaths, but not higher number of deaths of Aquino admin
Without naming them, Atty. Bruce Rivera picks on a certain television host who only uses newspapers to report on the “truth” even if newspapers are ran by companies with their own biases and a writer who fools herself into believing that “the Yellows are good people”.
Rivera narrates that this TV host once had the reputation of being a “no-nonsense lady” who always “tells it as she sees it”, however, Rivera lamented that “she is no longer seeing what it really is.”
The once aggressive and brave television host is now “caged in her own world as a result of her success,” Rivera explains.
The host’s riches and luxury has blinded her from seeing the reality of the masses and has even made her averse to it.
“She has not been out in the streets with the huddled masses because she has better things to do with her time so she relies on the newspaper and television for her version of the truth,” Rivera said.
Rivera even pointed out that this host labelled him and Mocha Uson as “trolls”, does not try to fix the wrong public perception of the 7,000 figure erroneously linked to drug wars, and criticizes the 2,000 deaths related to the drug wars even when she kept mum on the bigger number of deaths during the Aquino administration.
As for the writer, Rivera explained that she claims to be an investigative journalist even when the writer only sides with the Yellows and “zones out” the side of President Rodrigo Duterte.
“She convinced herself that the Yellows are good people and held on to such belief practically zoning out information to make her doubt her version of the truth,” Rivera said of the writer.
It was Jimmy Bondoc who realized that the unnamed writer “was not in bad faith when she wrote all those lies against PRRD,” but instead she simply fooled herself into thinking that the Yellow’s version of truth is the reality.
To add to that, the unnamed writer is given a column slot in a newspaper where, as Rivera said, she may “preach her mangled version of reality.”
Comments on Rivera’s post have guessed that the writer might be Raissa Robles and the TV host might be Winnie Monsod.
In his full post on Facebook, Rivera said,
"THE TRAGEDY OF NOT KNOWING
Filipinos are lazy readers. We often gravitate to people who can explain something so complicated and make it look simple. We want our news delivered to us with all the nuances connected so that we will no longer investigate the links. In short, we hate light bulb moments. We hate guessing games. We hate questions asked but not answered. And that is dangerous.
Clearly, the greater tragedy than ignorance is the laziness to know the truth. Sadly, most of the better thinkers on the other side suffer from this malaise.
Our first example is this writer who is married to another writer lambasting Jimmy Bondoc because government funds were used in the Palit Bise rally. When Jimmy talked to her, he realized that this person, who claims to be an investigative journalist, was not in bad faith when she wrote all those lies against PRRD. She convinced herself that the Yellows are good people and held on to such belief practically zoning out information to make her doubt her version of the truth. Too lazy to investigate so she convinces herself of the nobility of her indolence. The sad part is, she is being rewarded with a newspaper column to preach her mangled version of reality.
The other one is a television host with the reputation of being a no non-sense lady. She tells it as she sees it. But her problem is that: she is no longer seeing what it really is. She has been insulated from the real world because she has been caged in her own world as a result of her success. She wakes up in her posh home inside an exclusive subdivision in Metro Manila and goes to work in a caged building. She has not been out in the streets with the huddled masses because she has better things to do with with her time so she relies on the newspaper and television for her version of the truth. For her, if it is found in a newpaper, it is the truth. She called Mocha and myself as "trolls", she called Mocha a porno star like it was a mortal sin and she insists that the scenes of dead drug suspects highlighted in international media is the reality on the ground. She blames the PNP for not correcting media on the 7,000 victim statistic but allowed media to peddle the lie because no one complained.
Worst, she insists we adopt EJK as a concept despite its clear absence in our legal system because we no longer allow judicial killings hence EJK becomes a misnomer in our jurisdiction. And when we have successfully established that 2k is a more realistic number, she then moans that it is still a lot of dead bodies. Again, without putting to consideration that the past administration she supported to high heavens has a bigger number of deaths. Worst, she admitted then later recanted that Mamasapano was in fact an EJK. And at the end of the day, she gets to have the final say because it was her show.
These are the people we have to deal with. People who are given positions of influence to talk about the reality of the Filipino society. Over and above the paid hacks who just peddle lies for greed.
And they get to call us whores and porno stars."
