Just finished reading the transcripts of BBC’s interview with Sen. Sonny Trillanes, which transcripts formed part of today’s COMMS Pouch delivered to me daily by my staff.

Having no TV and internet access, I was curious about such interview, esp. so that I’ve been reading rather negative or unflattering comments relative thereto mostly in the social media, as picked up by mainstream media.

I knew it. It’s all a spin. The unsavory comments are but part of an intensified black propaganda engineered by the dark forces.

I may not have watched the actual interview, but after going over the transcripts, I honestly say that Sen. Sonny handled very well and admirably, the tough questioning by a host who was playing devil’s advocate.

With characteristic candor and moral courage, Sen. Sonny’s responses were to the point and his views on the core issues sound and valid. Sen. Sonny hits it in the jugular when he asserted that the Filipino public’s lack of awareness of the reality on the ground and the Duterte regime’s effective propaganda machine account for Duterte’s high popularity thus far.

So what so-called “meltdown” are the online bashers and haters talking about in describing Sen. Sonny’s performance?

Verily, Duterte’s minions thrive on disinformation and deceptions. They twist facts and distort reality. They fabricate stories. They lie… They lie a lot.

When will this present-day national scourge end!

To Sen. Sonny, mabuhay ka! Press on… Let us never give up. ###
