Busted: Photos of alleged de Lima scandal fake!

Published

on

Senator Leila de Lima is the current target of President Rodrigo Duterte’s campaign to name and shame government officials who are allegedly involved in the illegal drug trade. On top of that, he also called de Lima an “immoral woman” for having an affair with her married driver.

With the revelation came the revival of talks about de Lima’s alleged s3x video on social media and photos of what some netizens claimed to be de Lima and her driver circulated online.

However, Facebook page “P.Rody Dudirty” posted a photo proving that it was not de Lima in the stills of what was alleged to be her s3x video.de Lima Scandal

The photo came with a caption that said, “Screengrab of the porn video was taken from the original post by @miyakoizabel’s FB page. Note: Duterte fanatics were successful in requesting Facebook to remove her post. Nabuking nga naman ang isa sa mga kasinungalingan ng mga kups.”

We visited Miyako Izabel’s Facebook page and found a post on August 18 about the scandal.

She posted, “Sa Mga Uto-utong Pilipino.”

“Itong kinakalat ninyong larawan sa social media at ginagamit para sirain ang puri ni Senadora Leila de Lima ay mula sa isang porn site. Hindi po siya yan. Inuuto lang kayo at ginagago. Ginagawang mga tanga at bobo,” she said.de Lima Scandal

Izabel, in a separate post, also issued a challenge to those who uploaded the photos online.

“Ipakita niyo ang video na may boses. Hindi kasi puwedeng i-photoshop ang video at sound. Gawin niyo yan. Huwag iyong dark at blurry na larawan,” she said.

She even mocked the photo editing skills of the culprits. “Isa pa, kung mag-morph kayo ng image, husayan niyo naman? Huwag ‘yong pang C lang sa image editing class.”

On August 19, she posted how some of her posts proving that de Lima’s scandal was fake was deleted from Facebook.

Izabel wrote, “Ang Galing-galing Nila.”

“Napa-delete nila sa Facebook ang lahat ng mga makatotohanang post ko tungkol sa pambabalahura nila kay Senadora Leila de Lima gamit ang mga imahe ng iba na hinango mula sa mga porn website at ang kanilang pang-uuto sa mga Pilipino. Hindi po ako nasasaktan. Nagtataka lang ako. Pangit at masakit ba ang katotohanan? Bakit pilit itong binubura o tinatakpan?” she added.

Another Facebook post defending de Lima from the allegations of being featured in a s3x video also surfaced, showing the clearer photo of the real girl in the original video, with the caption, “Can’t believe the President went this low.”de Lima Scandal

De Lima not convinced taped scandal exists

De Lima expressed contempt over how her alleged s3x video surfaces whenever she is involved in high-profile investigations.

GMA News Online quoted her saying, “Masakit din yung mga tungkol sa mga personal na buhay na kinokontsa ka bilang babae, at tignan n’yo rine-revive na naman ang so-called alleged s3x video na yan.”

The presence of the de Lima scandal was first raised by whistleblower Sandra Cam in 2014 before the Commission on Appointments.

De Lima then said that the scandal was a fake.

“I noticed, every time I’m in the middle of something, a high-profile investigation, high-profile case, na ako ang nasa sentro, nilalabas nila ang so-called alleged s3x video na yan. Magpapa-text blast sila,” she said.

The senator added that she doubts the video exists.

“Nakita n’yo na ho ba yung s3x video na yan? Meron bang s3x video? Sabi ng aking staff ang nakita nila is parang still, still photo of what is being made to appear as a video. Sabi ng staff ko if I may share, in-examine daw nila nang husto yung picture na yan, halata naman daw na hindi ako yung babae dun,” de Lima said.

On questions about Cam, de Lima said, “Ang attitude ko sa kanya ay hindi ko siya pinapansin.”

After Duterte’s accusation of de Lima being “immoral,” the senator said that the President abused and misused his executive power of immunity. Netizens also came to her defense, pointing out Duterte’s own “immoral” womanizing issues.

Busted: Robredo wants to add years to the K-to-12 program? It’s fake news!

Published

on

Vice President Leni Robredo’s office released a statement debunking social media posts claiming that she wants to add a few more years to the K-to-12 program. This came after several posts started circulating about how Robredo allegedly said that she wanted to add a few more years to the K-to-12 program, angering netizens.

A certain tweet on March 1, 2020 showed the vice president’s photo along with these words: “Kulang ang K to 12 education system natin. Kelangan apat na taon sa Junior HS at apat na taon sa Senior HS.”

In January 17, the same image shared to the Facebook page “Raffy Tulfo In Action Supporters” also got shared over 6,000 times and triggered negative comments among the netizens.

Many social media users have lambasted Robredo over the said meme.

The unwarranted bashing and adverse reactions prompted her office to release an official statement debunking this false claim.

“Hindi totoong pinadadagdagan ni VP Leni Robredo ang mga taon sa K-to-12 program,” said the vice president’s office in a statement.

“Suportado ng Bise Presidente kung sakaling magkaroon ng review ng nasabing programa. Binibigyang-diin niya na kailangang siguraduhin na may tamang facilities at equipment ang mga specialized tracks, para mas maging madali ang pagtuturo nito at matiyak ang kahandaang makapagtrabaho ng mga mag-aaral sa kanilang pagtatapos,” it added.

In October 2019, Robredo did say that she was alright with reviewing how the K-to-12 program to determine how it could be further improved.

“Tumutugon rin ang kaniyang Tanggapan, kasama ang #AngatBuhay partners nito, sa pangangailangan ng tamang kagamitan. Nakapagbigay na ng kaukulang tools at equipment sa mga mahihirap na paaralan, gaya sa Mulanay sa Quezon, Panglao sa Bohol, at Sta. Maria sa Romblon,” the statement further said.

This is not the first time Robredo has been a victim of fake news. There were false claims, misleading headlines, and edited images or captions about how former Senator Bongbong Marcos has already won over Robredo, how she met former UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon to oust President Rodrigo Duterte, or how her portrait was sold on eBay, something that a popular blogger apologized for.

Busted: Walang kasalanan ang Tulfo brothers ayon sa imbestigasyon? It’s a misleading headline!

Published

on

An article has claimed that an investigation has found the Tulfo brothers to be not guilty. It says, “Lumabas Sa Imbestigasyon Na Walang Kasalanan Ang Tulfo Brothers,” as published by the website phworkit.top.

The story was even shared by Facebook pages “Ferdinand Emmanual Edralin Marcos” and “Rody Duterte MEDIA.”

However, the article merely contained a 10-minute YouTube video, which was a mix several video clips of different reports, some parts of which touched on the issues involving the P60 million tourism ads that aired on the PTV program of Teo’s brothers, the Tulfos.

One of the video clips showed that the CNN Philippines reported on why nepotism is considered corruption and abused of authority in the case of now-resigned Tourism Secretary Wanda and how her husband, Roberto Teo, served as the board member of the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA). But Roberto was appointed by former President Benigno Aquino III and has tendered his resignation from TIEZA effective June 30, 2018.

Another video clip showing a CNN Philippines report of a Malacañang press briefing, where a reporter asked Presidential Spokesperon Harry Roque if Communications Secretary Martin Andanar would be among those investigated in the controversial placement of P60 million worth of tourism ads on the program of the Tulfos, who are Teo’s brothers, leading people to raise the issue of conflict of interest. As the PCOO chief, he also supervises the state-run PTV-4, where the Tulfos’ programs are a blocktimer.

Asked by yet another reporter what President Rodrigo Duterte’s comment was on the issue with the DOT and the Tulfos, Roque said that he did not know then because he had not talked to the President for a while and the investigation conducted by the Office of the President was ongoing then.

The headline used in the video is misleading. It meant to make people think that the Tulfo brothers have been cleared from the issue involving them with the controversial P60-million tourism ad deal.

However, reports showed that even after Teo resigned from her post on May 7, the Ombudsman will still continue with the probe into the scandal. The body requested from the Commission on Audit (COA) a copy of its DOT report involving the controversial P60-million worth of payments for ads aired on PTV on May 8. The investigation is still ongoing, which meant that they it has not yet cleared the Tulfos.

Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea is also said to be investigating the scandal to determine the officials at fault at the DOT, People’s Television Network Inc. (PTNI), and the PCOO.

Ramon Tulfo, an Inquirer columnist, came out in the defense of his sister Teo and blamed  his younger brother Ben Tulfo for the controversy.

Party-list group Akbayan, however, said it was not enough for Teo to step down from her post. They wanted her to be prosecuted.

“The simple firing or resignation of corrupt officials will not put a stop to corruption in the government if this is not followed by swift prosecution and conviction,” the group said in a statement.

Akbayan also challenged President Duterte to file cases against Ben and Erwin Tulfo over the controversial ad transaction. Ben owns Bitag Media, which produced the PTV show “Kilos Pronto,” the program where the DOT ads were aired. His brother, Erwin, co-hosts the show with him.

Busted: Legarda sinumbatan si Robredo na mag-resign bago pa lumabas ang resulta na panalo si Marcos? Misleading headline!

Published

on

Senator Loren Legarda allegedly confronted Vice President Leni Robredo and asked her to resign before the results would show former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. as the winner.

The video was posted by blog dailydu30.info on May 15, 2018. The vice presidential vote recount is still ongoing, so the headline must have been referring to the result of the recount. It also made it seem as though Legarda is telling Robredo that she is certain that Marcos would emerge as the winner in the recount.

The YouTube video is 20-minute long and Legarda’s face was immediately shown at the beginning of the video. However, if you finish watching it, you’d know immediately that the video was not taken recently. In fact, it showed a portion of the budget hearing for 2017 for the Office of the Vice President. Further research showed that the hearing was conducted in front of the Senate panel on August 22, 2017 and it lasted less than an hour before it was approved. Robredo herself attended the budget hearing to present an overview of the OVP’s plans for 2018.

Legarda served as the Senate panel’s chair.

During the hearing, Robredo reported how the OVP spent its funds, mainly for poverty alleviation.

The Philippine Daily Inquirer reported that following the presentation on the fund allocation of the OVP, Legarda asked Robredo to send them a yearlong report on the needs of the sectors and areas that the OVP has reached while promising to help out on fulfilling those needs.

So unlike what the headline claimed, Legarda did not tell Robredo to resign from her VP post to make way for Marcos’ imminent victory. The headline is misleading and is merely playing with people’s emotions and gullibility.

However, Facebook page “Sara Duterte Worldwide Supporters” still shared it without verifying the headline’s claims.

There have been several fake stories involving Marcos and Robredo and the VP vote recount that we have busted. We debunked a misleading headline claiming that Marcos has already won, that Marcos won by 1,786 votes over Robredo, that Robredo would perform her tasks as VP until Marcos takes over, and that Marcos will replace Robredo.
