Yellow journalism is aptly defined by Wikipedia as “a type of journalism that downplays legitimate news in favor of eye-catching headlines… sometimes, it deceives the audience it is intended for”. Sound familiar?
Well, it better… for it’s practically what the Yellow Camp has been doing the entire electoral process! Never mind that Noynoy has practically done NOTHING in the 12 years he was in Congress and the Senate. And never mind that he’s as good as the scion of the elitist society!
This says a lot about the Philippines, for where else would you find a people that can easily be convinced of a candidate’s competency just because he had heroes as parents? If Noynoy’s track record is any indication of what to expect from his presidency, then Philippines, start familiarizing yourselves with the word “stagnate”.
