ABS-CBN journo Chiara Zambrano: Hindi namin trabaho na pabanguhin ang imahe ng gobyerno

ABS-CBN reporter Chiara Zambrano slammed the ‘machinery’ of the government in their move to allegedly silence the legitimate journalists.

In Zambrano’s Facebook post on November 7, she slammed the people behind the letter of Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson who requested to move Rappler from ‘Malacanang Press Crops to Social Media’.

According to her, the work of the press is not to boost the image of the government, but to report the truth.

She added that Rappler is not the only news organization that carefully observing the government.

Zambrano also believes that Mocha Uson is not the one who wrote the letter that she sent to PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar, but she was helped by the ‘machinery’ who wanted to silence the legitimate journalists.

She also pointed out that the constitution said that no law shall passed that would silence the press.

This is her whole post:

Mga bata, ganito ang itsura kapag sinusubukang kontrolin ng pamahalaan ang mga kilos at galaw ng mga lehitimong mamamahayag.

Nakakainis nga naman siguro pag kinokontra ka palagi, pag hindi kinakagat ang mga alok mong propaganda, at binabasag lagi ang iyong trip. Eto lang po kasi ang problema: bilang mga lehitimong mamamahayag, hindi namin trabaho ang pabanguhin ang imahe ng gobyerno, o ipakalat ang gusto mong propaganda, o ipromote ang trip mo. Ang trabaho naming lahat, hindi lang ng Rappler, ay walang humpay na pagmamatyag sa mga kilos ng pamahalaan at pangyayari sa lipunan. Ilabas kung ano ang mali, sino ang mali, ipaliwanag kung bakit. Ipagbunyi ang gumagawa ng tama, para pamarisan. Ilatag lahat sa taongbayan, para sa oras na kailangan niyong pumanig, tumindig, magdesisyon, kabisado na ninyo at kaya na ninyong panindigan ang sarili ninyong desisyon.

Hindi ito kagagawan ni Mocha. Hindi siya ganyan magsulat. Ang nakikita natin ngayon ay ang kanilang makinaryang gumagalaw. Hindi rin nila ito pwedeng maliitin at palabasing “housekeeping” measure lang, kasi wala naman sa ating pinanganak kahapon. Ito talaga ay tangkang busalan ang isang lehitimong grupo ng mga mamamahayag.

Kaso, bukod sa medyo palyado yung logic at premise ng buong kilos na ito, hindi po talaga pwede yun eh.

“No law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press…”

Hindi ko yan inimbento, merong tinatawag na 1987 Philippine Constitution, kung saan naka-base, nakatuntong, at umiikot ang lahat ng ating mga batas.

The post of Zambrano got mixed reaction from the netizens, some were angered by her post, but some expressed their support to her.

As of writing, the post of the ABS-CBN reporter reached 2,000+ reactions and 758 shares on Facebook.
