Jay Sonza, a veteran journalist who works in the media industry for almost three decades expressed his frustration with the modern-day reporters whom he labeled as a disappointment.
In his Facebook post, Sonza expressed his sadness because he believes that some well-known reporters in this era are ill-mannered and unprofessional.
Despite being a veteran reporter, Sonza was not afraid the mention several well-known journalist today and criticized them for their poor performance.
Sonza, who’s an avid follower of President Rodrigo Duterte labeled Joseph Moron, Kara David, Joel Zobel, Arnold Clavio, Alvin Elchico, Zen Hernandez, Karen Davila, Ed Lingao and Lourd De Veyra as “no breeding” apparently because of being critical on their reporting about the government.
He also mentioned a lady host from ANC and a news reader in TV5, but he didn’t disclose their names.
This is what he said in his Facebook post:
SAD NOTE. Karamihan ng mga bagong sibol na mga reporter/anchor sa radyo at telebisyon ngayon ay walang mga modo (walay batasan/ala lang asin), bastos at may pinag-aralang nasabi pero walang breeding at mababaw o walang depth o hindi aral sa mga isyu.
illustrative examples (i.e.): JOSEPH MORONG/kara david/joel zobel/arnold clavio (gma); ALVIN ELCHICO/zen hernandez/KAREN DAVILA at isa pang lady host sa anc (abs-cbn); ed lingao/LOURD DE VERA/isang hindi kilalang news reader na babae (tv5); at marami pang iba
Several of his followers agreed with what he said, saying that some reporters are only trying to find a topic that would destroy the image the government.
“Totoo po lahat yan sir Jay . Naaalala ko parati ko pinapanood ang Mel And Jay pero ngayon wala ng kwenta ang mga balita. Kaya i stopped watching news.” Netizen Le Mor Shaq said in her post.
“Ngayon nyo lang ba nahalata sir jay eh ng umupo si digong d n sila nagla undagaga sa kakahanap ng mali ni digong para headline nila si kara ano pat naging anak sya ni randy david idagdag pa natin si winnie monsod bawal daw ang pasaway pero numero unong pasaway ang matandang lente nya.” Netizen Myle Rogales commented.
“Bakit po kaya ang GMA reporters panay ang gamit ng mga katagang ‘daw’ ‘raw’ sa mga report nila? paminsan sa isang sentence mga dalawa o tatlong daw ang nadidinig ko hahahaha samantalang nung nasa practice pa ako kinokonsidera namin/natin yan na isang mortal sin di po ba kuya hehehe nagkasama pa nga tayo minsan sa radyo inquirer noon…lumalabas tuloy na hindi sila sigurado sa mga detalye nila at puros na lang daw.” Ren Munda Nasol remarked.
Sonza is not the only one who criticized several reporters, even President Duterte itself slammed the media before and even boycotted them for weeks because he said that his statements have been misquoted several times during the election period.
“I do not want publicity, you know that. It would be good if you disappear… Mag-boycott na kayo,” Duterte said in 2016.
“As a matter of fact, make this trip your last in Davao City. I do not care if there is nobody covering me,” he added.
