UPLB ComArts Kinondena si Jiggy Manicad

Lagot ka sa alma mater mo ngayon, Jiggy!

Jiggy Manicad Tinuligsa ng Alumni at Faculty ng UPLB

Kinondena ng ilang nagtapos ng Communication Arts sa UP Los Baños, pati na rin ang faculty ng Department of Humanities, si Jiggy Manicad dahil sa kanyang mga sinabi tungkol sa press freedom.

 

Ayon sa kanila:

“Manicad’s statements belie the state-led pressures exerted on national and local media entities and diminish the systematic harassment and violence against visiting journalists, broadcasters and publications in the country”

“These statements betray the most indispensable principles of journalism and public communication and are inconsistent with the honored values of the AB Communication Arts program.”

Matatandaang sinabi ni Manicad na may basehan ang criminal charges na isinampa ng gobyerno laban sa Rappler.

Ayon kay Jiggy, “I think may basis yung gov’t to say that may foreign fund na pumasok sa Rappler, to be honest about it. And it’s a violation of the Constitution. Yun ang nakikitang punto ng pamahalaan.”

Ganun din, kinuwestyon ni Manicad kung “politicized” at kung “telling the stories na objectively” ang Rappler.

Dagdag pa nya,”What I’m saying is it’s a very specific case which I really do not have a basis to talk about. Kung papaano ba talaga nagsimula yung attack ng Rappler sa Presidente, ano yung perception ng Presidente prior to that attack and what article pushed the government to do an investigation and for us to find out that there was foreign fund na pumasok sa Rappler.”

“Kasi ang nangyayari sa US parang inaattack niya lahat ng media to silence, well, yung mga naga-attack sa kanya, ina-attack din niya in return. So ganun lang yan eh, parang yun yung nakikita ko.”

Ipinagpalit ni Manicad ang mga prinsipyong ikinintal ng UP sa kanya sa 30 pirasong pilak ni Duterte. Wag iboto sa darating na Mayo.
