Duterte supporters react on TIME magazine reporter: It is an insult

Is this true? Is this article for real? For if so, it is an insult to all those who voted online for the President.


Just a recent result of the Time poll of the most influential people of the world. President Rodrigo Duterte was leading the Time 100, ahead of the other known leaders.

Duterte supporters Krizette Laureta-Chu and Antonio Contreras reacted to the Time magazine writer, Mahita Gajanan. She wrote the short introduction about President Duterte in the poll and she stated that:

"Duterte has been known to use social media to promote his agenda and has reportedly paid people to push him to popularity online."

All Duterte supporters, including Chu were insulted how the Time magazine reporter described the president in the news article.

Chu cited that as Gajanan worked in the well-known publication company, before posting such report, she should also have a source on her "reportedly paid people" to support her assumption.

So, Chu wrote Gajanan in the Facebook messenger to correct Gajanan writings. She stated that in case the Time magazine doesn't recognize the votes to Duterte, she wanted to Gajanan to confirm it to her. So that the Filipinos will not waste their time voting.

 "If his being number 1 is not appreciated, we'll stop voting so we avoid this
unnecessary humiliation."

Read the full post of Krizette:
A letter I wrote Mahita Gajanan of Time Magazine and sent thru FACEBOOK Messenger. (I'd tag her but she's untaggable.)

(Dami kong time.)

Hi, Mahita!

How are you?

So, you said in that article that "Duterte reportedly paid people to push him to popularity online." Is this implying that you think Duterte is at the top of the Time polls because he paid us to vote for him?

I'm one of his most rabid supporters, and I've never seen a single cent from him. Any idea which supporters he has paid? (Also, is it not a mark of real journalism when you use the word "reportedly"--you're supposed to back it up with actual references, like WHO or WHAT reported that Duterte paid supporters? What's the basis for saying "reportedly") You're not writing for a personal blog. "Reportedly"--when you're a reporter, and when it's for a legitimate publication like Time--has to contain at least a mention of the source of reports.

Also, please let us know if Time doesn't care to honor our votes, so we can just stop wasting our time telling Filipinos who love him not to vote for him.

We're driving traffic to your site, but if this isn't appreciated, or if you are just going to twist it into a negative news story, would appreciate if you'll just give all of us heads up now so we don't have to vote for Duterte. If his being number 1 is not appreciated, we'll stop voting so we avoid this
unnecessary humiliation.

Thanks.

Krizette
