“SPREADER of fake news.”
‘Yan ang tawag ng singer/performer na si Jim Paredes sa radio/TV news anchor at commentator na si Ted Failon.
Jim made a biting commentary on Karen Davila’s Twitter post paying homage to Ted as her co-anchor for six years.
According to her post last August 30 in the evening, “Nakasama ko si Si Ted Failon ng 6 na taon sa TV Patrol noong 2004-2010.”
Tinawag niyang icon sa industriya ang 58-year-old broadcaster at isa raw supposedly sa pinakamagaling at pinakamalalim magkomentaryo sa radyo.
“Saan ka man mapunta Ted, I am praying for your success. God be with you.”
The other day, Monday, August 31, Ted said goodbye to her radio program Failon Ngayon and at TV Patrol as well that he was able to anchor for 30 years at ABS-CBN.
Sinalungat sa comments section ni Jim ang mga papuri ni Karen kay Ted.
The member of the APO Hiking Society openly accused Ted as the purported ‘spreader of fake news,’ pagkatapos mag-sorry lay Karen.
Hindi sinagot ni Karen ang komento ni Jim.
But a netizen-lawyer dared him to prove what he was able to say that Ted is a spreader supposedly of fake news.
“Name one fake news he spread,” he dared Jim.
According to the 69-year-old veteran singer, Ted sided with Persida Acosta, the reigning chief of the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO), in connection with the issue of Dengvaxia vaccine last 2018.
“He sided with Persida on the issue of dengvaxia. He did not speak out against the manufactured data on deaths her office was touting even when top doctors and experts were contradicting her.”
Malaking pinsala raw ang dulot nito.
“Because of that,” he asseverated, “he eroded the trust in vaccines and help spread polio, chicken pox, etc.”
Ang PAO ang nangasiwa sa autopsy ng mga batang namatay matapos umanong maturukan ng Dengvaxia vaccine.
According to some allegation, hindi raw suited ang Dengvaxia sa mga batang hindi pa nagka-dengue, o tinatawag na seronegative patients, kaya raw nagkaroon ng masamang epekto ito sa mga hindi pa nagka-dengue pero naturukan.
The netizen asseverated, “Assuming it were true, siding and keeping silent are not spreading fake news.”
Sagot ni Jim, “He was not silent.”
The netizen further commented, “Him not speaking out (in your own words) doesn’t make him a spreader of fake news.”
At this juncture, Jim didn’t answer anymore.
