British DDS Express Disappointment on MB's Story Naming the Philippines as the 2nd Most Hated Country in Taiwan'

British Pro-Duterte supporter and a well-known DDS blogger Malcolm Conlan who is based in London wrote an Open Letter intended to the editor of the Manila Bulletin as he called out the publication for their alleged misleading article regarding the Philippines and Taiwan.


According to Malcolm Conlan he is writing to Manila Bulletin to express his great disappointment in the story they published claiming that the Philippines is the second most hated country in Taiwan.

The British Duterte supporter and defender on social media cited several concerns, asking Manila Bulletin on they collected the information in the said news, is it a result of a survey, how many respondents took part and how many indicated that they hated the Philippines.



Malcolm Conlan also lambasted Manila Bulletin for featuring a photo of a Philippine flag being burned which was discovered by some netizens as an old photo.

The British DDS believer also believe that the Manila Bulletin article may firstly lead to a possible diplomatic crisis with Taiwan as none of the facts they claim have been proven? Secondly, why they will feature this kind of story. Is Manila Bulletin trying to claim that the Philippines is not respected overseas? Conlan asked.

Here's the Complete Open Letter of Malcolm Conlan:

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE MANILA BULLETIN

The Editor,
Manila Bulletin,
Manila, 
Philippines

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you to express my great disappointment in your story today, which has since been shared on Facebook many times. In it, you claim that the Philippines is the 2nd most hated country in Taiwan?

I have several concerns over this, firstly, in the article, you make no reference as to how this news was collected? Was it as a result of a survey? If so how many respondents took part in the survey and how many Indicated that they hated the Philippines?

Also your article makes no mention of why the Philippines, according to your report is the 2nd most hated country?



You then feature of a photo of a Philippine flag being burned. When was this? Was this just a random flag burning event it was it a protest of some kind? What was the context?

(I have now been informed that this photo of the Philippine flag being burned is an old archive photo from a few years back. So in fact you are not reporting news at all. Merely dragging up old news to make the country and President look bad).

I believe that your article may firstly lead to a possible diplomatic crisis with Taiwan as none of the facts you claim have been proven? Secondly, why feature this story at all? Is your newspaper trying to claim that the Philippines is not respected overseas?

Is this a dig at the Philippine President or indeed Filipino citizens? How do you expect the Filipino public to react? Or is this just another case of fake news, just to gain likes, at the same time, embarrass the Philippines internationally?

I for one, am very angry and upset to see the Philippine flag being burned in public. Particularly as my family and indeed children are Filipino. I find this story deeply upsetting and unnecessary. I believe it is entirely inappropriate.

I would like to know what your publication intends to do with this information and survey results?



It saddens me that the country I love and respect deeply is hated by anyone, if this is the case, I would like to understand why?

Furthermore, I would hope that the Manila Bulletin apologises for carrying this nonsense, ridiculous, immaterial and unproven report.

Thank you,

Malcolm Conlan
London, UK
