According to Asec Badoy there’s an alleged blatant attempt at reframing the President’s noble and courageous efforts at ending a scourge that has held our country captive so that we’ve become a narco-state.
The controversial drug war of Pres. Duterte was overwhelmingly supported and approved by majority of Filipinos but BBC News tried to twists some important issues about the drug war.
Asec Badoy questioned BBC’s way of reporting, because out of all the possible ways to see the drug facilty in Fort Magsaysay, BBC allegedly presented a different angly.
The veteran doctor noted that the BBC could have said, “A new place of hope,” “A country rebuilding itself despite the huge challenges,” or “The Only Philippine President who has taken on this problem where other presidents before him looked away.”
Instead of reporting positively for the Philippines, BBC News chose to published “For those who’ve escaped Rody Duterte’s bloody drug war” “It is a drug rehab facility.”
Here’s the Complete Statement of DSWD Asec Lorraine Marie T. Badoy:
Pretty interesting spin by the BBC News.
Yeah, at first glance, it enrages.
But the dust settles pretty quick with me when I’m faced with such a blatant attempt at reframing the President’s noble and courageous efforts at ending a scourge that has held our country captive so that we’ve become a narco-state.
A drug war, by the way, that an OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of Filipinos support and approve of.
Why, out of all the possible ways to see this drug rehab facility in Fort Magsaysay, has BBC chosen that one sliver in the pie of possibilities?
