Prof. Contreras Slams Time for Accusing Pres. Duterte of Paying People as He Leads Most Influential Poll


La Salle Professor and veteran columnist of The Manila Standard Professor Antonio Contreras slams the newest article posted by supposedly one of the world's most prestigious news media outlet, Time Magazine as the author of the article accused President Duterte of of paying some people to push him to popularity online.


Time Magazine wrote the following malicious statements: "Duterte has been known to use social media to promote his agenda and has reportedly paid people to push him to popularity online."

Prof. Contreras reacted by saying that Western Media really do no have any idea about the Filipino state of mind. How utterly it is bereft of appreciating what makes us as a people that it looks so lowly at us, and our President, for it to even suggest that people have to be paid to vote for him online.



Here's the Complete Statement of Prof. Antonio Contreras:

Time Magazine writes:

"Duterte has been known to use social media to promote his agenda and has reportedly paid people to push him to popularity online."

Western media really do not have any idea about the Filipino state of mind. How utterly it is bereft of appreciating what makes us as a people that it looks so lowly at us, and our President, for it to even suggest that people have to be paid to vote for him online.

This is supposed to be Time Magazine, a prestigious publication. How on earth can it become so tabloidish to state a serious allegation without any source or iota of evidence.
Shameful.

Aside from Prof. Antonio Contreras, Netherlands-based blogger Sass Rogando Sasot who also posted the following statement on her Facebook Page.

So Time Magazine wrote about Duterte leading its poll. The article said Duterte is known to paying people to make him popular online and that he broke his campaign promise of legalizing gay marriage.

What did I tell you about Time Magazine?
