Filipinos via social media criticise The New York Times article entitled “Philippines’ Top Judge Took On Duterte. Now, She’s Out.” It gives unfounded opinions in line with Liberalism’s black media propaganda against popular leaders like the country’s President Rodrigo Duterte and the late Ferdinand Marcos. The highest court votes out its chief justice recently. It removes a fierce critic of the President and his brutal war against drugs. However, the comment “which has left thousands dead” can give a wrong perception to the reading public.

[VIDEO]: The Supreme Court voted to oust Maria Lourdes Sereno as Chief Justice, its spokesperson Ted Te said.
Voting 8-6, the Supreme Court justices out Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. It approves a petition by Solicitor General Jose Calida that questions the validity of her appointment. The ground that clearly disqualifies her. Not filing the SALN that discloses her wealth is unconstitutional.
Sereno is a constant irritant along with other Liberal Party members like the questionable Vice President Leni Robredo. They publicize the alleged increasingly autocratic rule of Duterte even if they are the ones doing undemocratic actions. They question the validity of the President’s list of public officials who are drug suspects. The opposition also blocks his declaration of martial law in the southern Philippines. However, the majority of the people hail Duterte for drastically lowering the crime rate. The martial law also made Marawi very peaceful now.

Only hundreds gather on the streets to protest what they called a “blatant ploy” by Duterte to speculatively wrest power from the judiciary and figuratively undermine the independence of the courts. On the other hand, millions demonstrate their support to the Duterte administration especially to his chosen successor, Bongbong Marcos. In fact, the INC breaks the record of forming the longest human sentence recently. They are asking where their vote went for Marcos.
LP’s Dictatorship using the Media
The Liberal Party should know that when the rights of Filipinos are not respected, they know where to go – their government. In the digital era, the voice of the people cannot be claimed anymore by the power-hungry Liberals. They can express individually via social media. One can easily measure their intensity through Google Analytics. The New York Times is certainly biased if their only source is LP’s Senator Risa Hontiveros. Take it from CNN Philippines.
