Major News Outlets Criticize PTV-4 for Using Chinese Warship Photo as Philippine Navy Ship


Major news outlets in the Philippines criticized the national government's media agencies after using a photo of People's Liberation Army Navy (aka Chinese Navy) Type 054A Jiangkai II-class frigate, as PTV-4 changed the flag flying in the photo in the Philippine flag.



The said Navy Shp of China was identified by PTV-4 as a Philippine Navy frigate which enrages the critics of the Duterte admin. It was sensationalized further by the mainstream media resulting into major coverage by various news media outlets in the country.



The said controversial photo of the Philippine Navy but in reality they used the Chinese Navy ship, made headlines after some netizens and critics pointed out the misinformation presented by the government news agency. The photo was used to describe to describe Pres. Duterte's statement that he's planning to send a frigate to Libya to assist in the rescue of 3 OFWs kidnapped by Libyan terrorists.

Although the video report of the said Philippine Navy ship was already taken down by PTV-4 and the news article on their Facebook Page was already taken down also, various news media outlets took some screenshots of the said blunder.

Popular Facebook Page, MaxDefense Philippines also criticized the Philippine government's official news outlet by posting this message on social media:



When the government's own state media and communications office becomes the purveyor of fake news, then definitely you'll know there's something wrong with how things are happening.

Here it can be seen that the government's media agencies used a photo of a People's Liberation Army Navy (aka Chinese Navy) Type 054A Jiangkai II-class frigate, changed the flag flying in the photo with a Philippine flag, and identified it as a Philippine Navy frigate. They used the photo to describe Pres. Duterte's statement that he's planning to send a frigate to Libya to assist in the rescue of 3 OFWs kidnapped by Libyan terrorirsts.

Why does the government need to do unneccessary fake news when it can simply use a photo of the Philippine Navy's own frigate? Is it because they want to show that the PN's frigate is fully equipped and capable to go to Libya when in reality its not? Or is it because the government believes that the Chinese frigate is indirectly a Philippine frigate for reasons mentioned by the president months before?

First photo is the original one (taken from Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_054A_frigate), the second photo is the edited version used by state media. Akala ko ba "No to Disinformation"?
