MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Filipinos’ trust in the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) has dropped, based on the Social Weather Stations’ (SWS) latest survey.
The SWS said that of the 1,200 adults surveyed from March 25 to 28, 58 percent have “much trust” and 13 percent have little trust in the UN while 27 percent were undecided.
In recent weeks, both the UN and EU have offended the pride and sensibilities of Filipinos with their statements or actions criticizing or condemning the Philippine 🇵🇭 government’s war on drugs and corruption.
Meanwhile, a still-unreleased SWiS Survey on Filipinos’ Trust in the news media shows that the rating has now dropped to below zero. Survey respondents decried the fake and biased news they read or hear in legitimate news media like The Inquirer, Rappler, GMA News, ABS-CBN, New York Times, TIME, The Washington Post and CNN.
The below-freezing trust rating in news media is truly unprecedented.
