Open Letter To TIME Magazine: Duterte is No. 1. Even without you poll

But one thing is also sure: Duterte is No. 1. Even without you poll.

After Mahika Gajanan news story to President Rodrigo Duterte that he reportedly paid people so that Duterte will be more to social media and his agenda, several bloggers were reacted to her statement.

One of these bloggers who expressed their sentiment is Political Pinoy. Political Pinoy defended the president and said that if only Gajanan knew that most Filipino support Duterte.

He/she said that for Duterte, he don't care about popularity and also being on the Time 100.

On the latter, Political Pinoy gave his one last shot, "But one thing is also sure: Duterte is No. 1. Even without you poll."

Read the full statement:
Dear Time Magazine:

You can’t have it both ways: conduct an online poll then cast doubt on the results just because they are not what you expected.

Perhaps you have already decided who will be included in Time’s 2017 Most Influential People in the World. You may even have inadvertently given away your choices with this collage of photos you published.

While you are asking your readers to weigh in, you yourselves said that the ultimate decision rests with your editors. So why bother asking?

Oh that’s right. You need to drive people to your site or solicit subscriptions to your magazine, not to mention advertisements to help you recover from your sagging popularity. And credibility.

When your writer Mahika Gajanan implied in her article that President Rodrigo Duterte may have used social media, i.e., your online poll, to promote his agenda or paid people to push him to popularity online, she did not insult our president. Rather, she insulted the Filipino people.

If only Gajanan did her homework — as is expected of journalists working for such a prestigious magazine like yours — then she would have known that almost 9 out of 10 Filipinos support Duterte, including those who did not vote for him.

Duterte does not need to pay anyone to vote for him in your poll. In fact, he does not have any ambition to be on your list. He does not care about world popularity, otherwise he would be traversing the continents making nice with leaders and mouthing some sweet talk.

Filipinos number 100 million in a world population of more than 7 BILLION! To imply that Filipinos alone can influence the outcome of your online poll would be to say that they are an indispensable segment of your readership. That, or your poll is skewed in the first place.

Well, I have some news for you. Most Filipinos don’t even read or follow Time Magazine..

But one thing is also sure: Duterte is No. 1. Even without you poll.
