Despite ranting on television against what he perceived as the Inquirer’s bias against him, President Rodrigo Duterte has no plans of making a former complaint with the Inquirer’s Ombudsman.

“I don’t think he will be filing a formal complaint. There are more serious matters to be taken on,” said Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella.

Abella explained that Duterte’s main beef with the Inquirer was how it skewed its stories to put the President in a bad light, such as making it appear it its headlines that the poor were the real targets of his drug war.

“I think what he complains about is the question of fairness in the sense that, for example, some matters are framed in particular way that caricatures his situation or caricatures certain situations,” said Abella.

“For example, the way the war on drugs was framed as against a war versus the poor. You know, it seems to imply that he is actually focusing on a particular class which is highly the point. But the way the media, that particular media framed it, insinuates a particular bias, you know, which leans towards malice,” he added.
