TV5 news anchor and journalist Ed Lingao is on a roll as he slammed the Erwin and Ben Tulfo, with the argument starting over a fake meme. On Wednesday, June 21, he hit Communications Asec. Mocha Uson for sharing Erwin Tulfo’s rant against him and reminded her about her responsibilities as a government official.
Lingao started off saying that after seeing Uson’s post sharing Tulfo’s Facebook Live video, how he understood why there are so many Diehard Duterte Supporters commenting against him even if he did not say something about President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Ayun, sumali pala ang isang ito. Kaya naman pala ang daming DDS na kumokomento kahit wala pa akong binabanggit tungkol sa Pangulo,” Lingao wrote. “Hija (or Assistant Secretary for the Presidential Communications Office), pinanuod ko na po nung Sabado pa.”
Just like what he did with the two Tulfo brothers, he urged Uson to read his response to Erwin’s video.
He also noted how Uson is now a Malacañang official and not simply the blogger “who tried to replace the media.”
“Pangalawa, at mas mahalaga, Assistant Secretary ka na sa Malacanang. Opisyal ka na ng gobyerno, at hindi isang simpleng blogger na nagpipilit maging kapalit ng media. Wala ka nang excuse,” Lingao said.
Lingao added that she must now act as a “responsible official” who does not share fake news or defend those who are promoting fake news, which Erwin Tulfo did when he cussed at Sen. Risa Hontiveros over a fake meme.
“Inaasahan natin ang mga responsableng opisyal na nasa larangan ng komunikasyon na hindi sila mag shashare ng fake news, at hindi rin magshashare ng pang depensa sa fake news. Lalo na kung hindi responsable ang pagka bitaw,” he said.
Fact-check his post, Lingao told Uson.
“Hindi na po kailangan pa ng paliwanag dun. Pwede mo naman balik balikan ang mga sinabi ni Idol, at yung mga sinabi ko. Kahit ulit-ulitin po ninyo, para lang ma check ang facts. Magpatulong nalang kayo, marami namang staff na pwedeng ibigay si Sec Andanar,” he said.
“Assistant Secretary na po kayo. Reminder lang yun.”
