Former Scout Ranger, Sir Abe Purugganan posted a set of photos on his official Facebook Page showing how the mainstream media reported a misleading news article about the nationwide walkout conducted by some students from the University of the Philippines.
Sir Abe Purugganan, one of the most avid supporter of Pres. Rody Duterte on social media and co-creator of the Revolutionary Government movement for Pres. Duterte posted the following statement on Facebook:
“Why can’t these people learn to report honestly? Why do they have to lie and deceive the Filipino people? Is this the kind of press freedom that we want, the freedom to lie?
These two news outfits are propaganda machines of the liberals.“
The photos includes the misleading articles from CNN that says “Hundreds of Students Take to Streets vs. Government” and the headlines posted by Rappler that says “IN PHOTOS: Thousands join nationwide walk-out vs Duterte.”
Due to the misleading nature of the headlines by the two mainstream media outlets, netizens reacted by posting their comments on the said photos.
