Boycott Manila Standard Today!

      11 Comments on Boycott Manila Standard Today!

I am joining Nick ‘s Renewed Boycott Against Manila Standard Today.

Here it is, our stand, because [tag]Manila Standard[/tag] Today has chosen to hide behind their term ““protocol” and issue a pardon to their most beloved columnist for all The Filipinos to see. This is a call to boycott, for the irresponsible behavior of Manila Standard Today, they have chosen to pass up the option of doing the right thing, and essentially show their true colors and the standards they are upholding.

Do not go to their website, do not buy their paper, and anything that they write. Unless it is a declaration of firing [tag]Malu Fernandez[/tag], it will fall on deaf ears.

Incidentally, Daily Inquirer wrote about this latest boycott campaign including Anton de Leon’s entry on Malu Fernandez who is based in Dubai. Apparently, the Filipino Channel will interview him today about the renewed boycott campaign and the OFWs sentiments.

Yes I know that we should move on to other important issues like Justice for Cris Mendez but sadly, I still see a lot of hits coming into my blog because of the Malu Fernandez article. The Malu Fernandez issue refuses to die because she was not sincere in her apologies. The mere fact that she is still with Manila Standard speaks for itself.

If you want to participate in this renewed boycott against Manila Standard, just read this entry and grab the badge for the boycott campaign.

Hope you can join us.

  • Noemi, thank you for joining the boycott. You may want to grab the new code because the old one was broken.

  • Its high time we pushed the envelope. MST just showed us what kind of people run the paper.

  • @nick- but of course. Manila Standard needs to be more sensitive to OFWs

    @schumey- and we will show them .

  • Here is another from the same newspaper – Educating migrants

    The man who wrote this needs to be educated about OFW, the same, I say must be given to the guy who said “these are not the people na mataas ang pinag-aralan” (bakit di ba nagmumura or marunong mambastos ang mga matataas ang pinagaralan na hindi ofw?) in that interview with the media in focus that is actually out of focus.

    They must read books on Enlightenment so they will not generalize (which I believe, another form of bigotry). True, there are few or many among us who do not behave the way they think must behave but we are not at all the same.

    Going by this writer’s idea then we could say that if there are 100 or more arrogant and irresponsible journalists therefore, all filipino journalists are arrogant and irresponsible.

    To all out there who think we are one bunch of same banana, stop talking as if you know all the OFW’s around the world.

  • Manila Standard is like shooting fish in a barrel. Did you know its daily circulationis about 10,000 copies? But where in the world do ideas like Malu Fernandez’s come from, one wonders.

  • As they said dont judge a book if you are not a judge. Just Let God to judge them. Mas mahirap yun
