One of the country’s most popular social media personality, Sass Rogando Sasot slams the Malacañan Press Corps (MPC) for their statement against President Duterte and the PCO Secretary Martin Andanar.

In a report posted by Inquirer, the MPC hits Sec. Andanar who blames the media for their biased reports against Pres. Duterte. Based on the MPC documents they hopes that Andanar’s behavior is not an attempt to discredit or undermine the media.

Here’s Part of the Statement by MPC:

“We are disturbed and appalled by the propensity of the officials of this administration to blame the media whenever the inflammatory statements of the president stir controversy or draw flak. This trend should stop as it would not contribute to the elevation of the level of public discourse,” it said

“The media has no obligation to please or satisfy sources because its loyalty is to the citizens, those who will be affected by the actions of people who are far more powerful than them,” it added.

MPC hopes that “such behavior is not an attempt to discredit or undermine the media, which plays a crucial role in keeping our democracy healthy and checking those in power, and supplant them with information sources that would push for an agenda that is less than noble than the truth.”

Sass Rogando Sasot responded to the statement released by MPC by expressing her thoughts through Facebook and shared it to thousands of her followers on social media.

According to Sasot, she doubts the the Philippine media is “keeping democracy healthy” because the Philippine Media is highly partisan. The media have never been critical to Vice President Leni Robredo.

Here’s the Complete Statement of Sass Rogando Sasot:

“Sa Malacañan Press Corps. You said Philippine media is “keeping democracy healthy”? Philippine media is HIGHLY PARTISAN. How is that making our democracy healthy? Since when ba kayo naging critical kay Robredo?”

“You are treating her with a kid glove, careful about soiling even the hem of the virginal image of Our Lady of Naga, while you guys are doing everything to make Duterte look and sound dirtier as you stretch and slant everything he says that could inflict maximum damage against his legitimacy.”
