Embattled Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano is accusing big media companies of getting massive funds to demolish his him and his private foundation, Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC), which is handing the country’s hosting of the SEA Games.

“It was only four or five websites na nagtapon ng mga fake news paulit-ulit. So anong tawag mo do’n? Even ilan sa mga media, umamin na sa amin na may umaagos na pera para siraan ‘yung SEA Games,” said Cayetano in an interview with reporters.

When asked how much, Cayetano replied: “I don’t know. I mean this were just told to me by close friends, and they told me, you know, buti na lang wala tumatanggap. Kasi nga for the country ‘to, pero kung ito ay pulitika o campaign ‘di ba? But you will see it you know for those—’yung networks n’yo na merong subscription sa mga metrics, makikita n’yo ahensyang-ahensya ang bumabanat at saka sa mga… ‘yung fake news na ‘to sunod-sunod makikita mo.”

Cayetano, who has apologized publicly for the mishaps in the buildup towards the November 30 opening of the SEA Games, claimed that 95 percent of the contriversial issues that President Rodrigo Duterte, including the kikiam issue, were “fake news” that were aimed at him and this administration.

“Wag po kayong magagalit ha kahit si Michael Jordan minsan kapag nafe-fakan lumilipad pa, eh ang problema pati sa media ni-report pa rin ‘yung fake news ‘di ba? So kita n’yo ‘yung sinasabing kikiam, it was a buffet, it was chicken sausage, mayrong egg, may rice. It’s nutritious for our athletes, yet kalat na kalat na, pero hindi naman kumakalat ‘yung sagot sa fake news,” said Cayetano.

“It’s already damaging sa atin so I do know that during the digital age, lalo ‘yung mga online, we have to report kaagad but that doesn’t take out the responsibility to check kung totoo ‘yung nire-report o hindi ‘di ba? Hindi pa raw tapos ang swimming pool, sa Nepal naman pala ‘yung swimming pool ‘di ba? Hindi pa raw tapos ‘yung sa Biñan and then magre-report’ yung iba race against time sa Rizal. We told you that from the start ‘di ba? Kasi nga nabitin ‘yung budget, every single part of the way, we brought you to the site, from ground breaking until matapos. So ‘yung mga nire-recycle na issues ngayon, ang target n’yan ako at ‘yung administrasyon na ‘to,” he added.

Hnda na ba kayo? Perlas-Bernabe, Gesmundo, Hernando to face JBC March 12 for CJ post

Three Supreme Court (SC) justices vying for the position of chief justice are set to face the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) for a public interview this Friday (March 12).

SC Clerk of Court and JBC Ex Officio Secretary Edgar Aricheta announced that the JBC will be holding the interviews online.

Aricheta said the candidates who will be undergoing the interview are Justices Estela Perlas-Bernabe, Alexander Gesmundo, and Ramon Paul Hernando.

“The public may submit a sworn complaint, report, or opposition against any of the aforesaid candidates,” Aricheta said.

Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta is set to retire on his 69th birthday this March 27, a year early from his compulsory retirement.

He has been a magistrate of the SC since 2009 upon the appointment of then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Prior this, Peralta has served as magistrate of the Sandiganbayan since 2002 until appointment to the SC.

Poe alarmed by Covid-19 surge: ‘Vaccines must be delivered quicker’

Senator Grace Poe on Monday expressed alarm at the reported surge in Covid-19 infections in Metro Manila and other high-risk areas, calling on the vaccination managers to speed up the rollout of the inoculation program.

“The alarming surge in Covid-19 infections must be addressed with quicker action to deliver the shots to our health workers and other priority groups as we anticipate the arrival of more vaccines in the coming days,” the chair of the Senate public services committee said.

“We should vaccinate faster than the virus can spread. This is taking into account that the supply of the government-procured and donated doses will reach the Philippines on time,” Poe said.

“We count on the task force to continue equitable negotiations for the purchase of safe and efficient vaccines, complemented by a smooth implementation of the inoculation program,” she added.

“The challenge is to speed up and harmonize processes to ensure that all Filipinos will have an access to the vaccine to banish Covid-19 and help steady the economic ship,” Poe said.

Weh, di nga? Roque thinks gov’t has done ‘excellent’ job managing Covid-19

By Prince Golez

One year after national lockdown to stop the spread of coronavirus disease (Covid-19), Malacañang believes the government has performed excellently at managing the pandemic.

In a virtual presser on Monday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the Duterte administration did a “very good” job of containing Covid-19.

“We were excellent. Nakontrol po natin ang pagkalat ng sakit lalong-lalo na kung ikukumpara tayo sa mas mayayaman at mga bansa na mas marami at mas modernong ospital,” said Roque.

“We did a very good job, given na kulang talaga ang ating health facilities at kulang yung pondo na binubuhos natin para sa health sector,” he added.

As of March 7, the Philippines recorded a total of 594,412 cases of Covid-19. Out of these cases, 545,853 recovered and 12,516 died.
