Inquirer apologizes for fake news

Home / News / Viral / Inquirer apologizes for fake news

Major news outlets herald themselves as the true conveyors of truth, but even they issue falsities sometimes. 

The Philippine Daily Inquirer took some verbal beating from RJ Nieto of Thinking Pinoy and other netizens for publicizing what Nieto calls as “fake news”.

Inquirer previously published a story on August 3, 2017 (Thursday) with the headline “Poe reminds Duterte: Watch your mouth.”

The news outlet later on apologized for misquoting Senator Grace Poe. She never chastised President Rodrigo Duterte to “watch” his “mouth”. 

Instead, what Poe actually said was, “style na niya ‘yan pero syempre pag ikaw ay pinapakinggan ng mga bata, gagayahin. Sang-ayon ba tayo doon… Basta alam na niya anong tama o mali so paalala lang, SPG.”

Nieto was disappointed with how Inquirer let the reporter on the story take on her/his own interpretation of Poe’s message.

In his full post on Facebook, Nieto said

"INQUIRER POSTS FAKE NEWS? 

Ok wait lang, so hindi pala sinabi ni Grace Poe ang "watch your mouth", at kinargahan lang ng reporter? 

Ang mismo palang sabi ni Grasya e “Style na niya ‘yan pero syempre pag ikaw ay pinapakinggan ng mga bata, gagayahin. Sang-ayon ba tayo doon… Basta alam na niya anong tama o mali so paalala lang, SPG.”

Well, tama naman sabi ni Grasya (altho siyempre, pudpod pa rin ang issue ng cursing ni PRRD), but what's clear here is that she never told PRRD to "watch his mouth" a la Miss Minchin. 

NAKO, INQUIRER, TSK TSK TSK!
