HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) – Top Filipino news media are turning their heads toward entertainer-turned-blogger Mocha Uson. No, make that scratching their heads.
Soon after Rodigo Roa Duterte was elected, it was only Uson who was able to score an exclusive one-on-one interview with the then newly-elected Philippine president. None of the major news media like the Inquirer or GMA-7, or ABS-CBN, or the online Rappler was able to sign the president up.
Now, Uson scored another exclusive, one-on-one interview with Nur Misuari, the founder and leader of the rebel group Moro National Liberation Front. Misuari earlier met with Duterte in Malacañang, the presidential palace over peace talks in Mindanao.
Readers of The Adobo Chronicles had their own conclusion on why Uson was able to do what the legit media could not.
Readers said that both the news media and Uson are obviously biased. “The only difference,” they said, “is that Uson flaunts it while the new media try to hide or deny it.”
Fool the Filipinos once, they bite it. Fool them twice they swallow it. Fool them a third time, they turn around and bite you!
