There are Filipinos who are uninformed and misinformed by media. Seldom are those who hear the certain news and verify the facts by researching to seek for the truth. This is why people in the Philippines now live in a period of inauthenticity and contradictions.

Inauthentic

The Vice President prides herself in her advocacy in the world of the marginalized. But in her first radio show, she was surprised that malnutrition is prevalent among the poor. She said that her experience of coming face to face with the poor and malnourished is unique. This shows how detached she is with reality. Therefore, Leni Robredo portrays herself as inauthentic.




Contradictions

On the other hand, the impeachment complaint filed by Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano against the President was quickly dismissed by the House committee on justice because it is insufficient in substance. It failed when Alejano shows that he had no personal knowledge of the acts which he accuses the President of. His sources are news reports, particularly by Rappler and ABS-CBN.




Propaganda

Gone are the days that investigative journalism is reliable. Journalists are considered as bearers of truth and facts in the past. Now, Rappler and its cohorts have, give the main stream medium a bad name. They are sources of black media propaganda at the present time.









Social Media as Neutralizer

The internet is blamed as the cause of the decline in the power of traditional mass media. But on the contrary, mass media can be popularized by it if they remain authentic to its ethic of fairness and neutrality. People have no choice but to migrate to social media as their sources of information. It is easy to lose credibility in this avenue. Once a medium does not carry the true sentiments of the people, it can face serious attacks online. This is why after decades of suffering from black propaganda, the Marcos family rises above their enemies. PDu30 also is untouchable because of this.
