MANILA, Philippines- Kinondena ng National Press Club of the Philippines (NPC), isa sa pinakamatanda at pinakamalaking organisasyon ng mga aktibong mamamahayag sa bansa, ang ‘flagging’ ng Facebook at ‘fact checkers’ nito sa halos lahat ng public platforms, nitong Linggo.

“It has been barely two days since April 19, when the NPC issued its statement criticizing Facebook and its ‘fact-checkers,’ Rappler Philippines and Vera Files, for their callousness in warning Philippine national security adviser, Secretary Hermogenes Esperon over his post involving the threat pose to our nation’s security by the communist terrorist groups,” ayon sa presidente ng NPC na si Paul M. Gutierrez.

Suportado naman ng publiko at mga kapwa nasa gobyerno ang krititsismo ng NPC sa social media site.

Aniya pa, ipinakita ng Facebook sa mga Pilipino na ito ang ‘Lord of the Realm of Social Media’ sa pagbibigay-babala sa official public platforms gaya ng “Philippine News Agency (PNA), our media colleague in the public sector,” dagdag ni Gutierrez.

“This is dangerous and truly alarming. Increasingly, Facebook, on the proddings of its fact-checkers and other state enemies, such as the CTGs, is demonstrating its capacity to resort to the neo-fascist method of wholesale censorship— and of an entire country at that— unmindful that it is already trampling on the laws and the sovereignty of our Republic,” giit niya.

“In the meantime, we call on all NPC affiliates and all the responsible and patriotic elements in the media community, along with other patriotic organizations to unite in resisting and denouncing this common threat to our civil liberty and our democracy,” pahayag pa ni Gutierrez.

Hinikayat naman niya na huwag hayaang diktahan ng foreign entities ang mga Pilipino dahil ito umano ay pasismo, at hindi demokrasya.

“Let us not be cowed in exposing the abusive behavior of foreign-funded corporations who are now trying to impose their will on us, a sovereign people,” apela ni Gutierrez. RNT/SA
