    VP Leni chides ‘unapologetic, arrogant’ bloggers: Public service a privilege

    5 October 2017 Office of the Vice President Vice President Leni Robredo took to task several bloggers-turned-government officials over the statements they gave before a Senate committee hearing on the proliferation of fake news in the country. VP Leni scored the bloggers for their arrogant and insensitive answers, specifically to questions on the possible conflict between their duty as public officials and their posts on social media, some of which have contained unverified and false information. “Para sa akin, medyo na-eskandalo ako. Unang una, iyong iba sa kanila na nandoon sa Senado ay pinagmulan ng maraming kasinungalingan tungkol sa akin, pero unapologetic. Walang bahid ng pagsisisi. Parang walang kahihiyan. At iyong masama pa sa lahat, parang iyong yabang at angas, nandoon,” she said in an interview on Thursday afternoon. The Vice President, who has been the subject of several “fake news” items promoted by the said bloggers, said their attitude towards public service is an “insult” to honest-to-goodness government workers. “Insulto ito sa maraming kawani ng pamahalaan na naninilbihan sa taumbayan kahit napakakaunti ng nakukuhang kapalit,” she said. “Iyong sa atin, iyong paniniwala natin bilang mga Pilipino, na iyong paninilbihan para sa bayan, isang pribilehiyong hindi nabibigay sa lahat.” “Para sabihin mong hindi mo kailangan iyong pamahalaan, iyong pamahalaan iyong nangangailangan sa iyo, parang… Ito ba tayo bilang Pilipino?” she added. “Hindi tayo ganito. Iyong sa atin, iyong paninilbihan sa bayan walang halaga, hindi puwedeng isukat. Pero parang dinadaan sa yabang.” “Ganito ba iyong pagtingin natin sa paglilingkod sa bayan? Parang sinasabi na kaya sila naglilingkod kasi gustong makatulong, pero sa ganoon na asta, hindi yata nakakatulong, pero lalong nakakasama,” she went on. Asked if there is a need to pass a law aimed at stopping fake news, VP Leni said there are already laws in place to regulate published information of such nature. She added that it will be up to Congress to decide on the matter.
