Why the Mainstream Media Only Broadcasts Half Truths?
Marcos Defends Himself
Ferdinand Marcos who was arrested on a charge of conspiracy to murder was tried and found guilty in 1939. This was allegedly for killing his father’s political rival. He argued his case on appeal to the Supreme Court and won in 1940. It was judge Doy Laurel who reversed the ruling. Marcos took the bar exam while serving his term and got the highest ever score of 98.1%. However, the media only reflects 92.5% for some reason. Who is now guilty of the alleged history revisionism?
Bought Spratly Island
Marcos also bought Spratlys island for only 1 Peso in 1956. It is known as Pag-asa island these days. The Philippine Maritime Institute founder, Tomas Cloma founder was in prison. This was because of fraud. Plus the illegal use of the Admiral title during martial law. Cloma was released after he agreed to sell the island to Marcos. The former President Marcos is the only president who had military defense weapons experiments. He believes that the defense of the country cannot be left to the alliance of other countries alone.
Marcos asks for the hand of his First Lady, Imelda Marcos after only 11 days of knowing her. He said it was love at first sight. They got married only after two weeks of getting to know each other. They may have some ups and downs in their marriage but his wife stood by him until the end of his life. This shows that the Marcoses are real people. They do not hide their weaknesses but capitalize on their strenghts. That is to love and serve the country to the best of their ability.
