PIA Press Release

Beware, know the facts of news, Cabinet secretary counsels

Tacloban City (September 1) -- Cabinet Secretary Ricardo Saludo called on the public and the media to analyze the bases of news and criticisms.

Secretary Saludo said that the public is easy to have doubts because of chatter and gossip just like what happened recently to a television contest and accusations of several politicians.

Before judging someone, evaluate the issues, Secretary Saludo said. If there is a suspected anomaly in government, file charges and provide evidences like what one congressman did.

If there is a complaint against a private company like a television station, inform the Department of Trade and Industry so that it could conduct thorough investigation.

The same applies to the economy, Secretary Saludo added. The loyal and committed government personnel worked hard to compile and analyze economic data. It is hoped that their good work will be dispense with just because of text messages sowing doubts and baseless accusations.

Further more, when asking the public if they feel the economic growth, it is hoped that the media will show not only the people who have not been benefited by the economic growth but also show a few of the hundreds of thousands Filipinos who found employment, acquired a home, electricity, hospitalization and other benefits.

Finally, Secretary Saludo commended the newspapers and programs which make news with credibility and strong bases.

Indeed, the media has a very important responsibility to the public- that of giving light to the people by giving them factual and unbiased information. (PIA 8) [top]
