Cock Rocky: NUJP has no objectivity, ethical ascendancy nor journalistic integrity --Noah Luchansky

Aye aye!!

The NUJP has no objectivity, ethical ascendancy nor journalistic integrity to speak of. Even their apologists struggle to defend their Yellow journalism and poorly constructed rhetoric.

I am against censorship and the regulation of journalism BUT I am equally averse to the misuse of a public platform to misinform, misguide and malign.

Journalism carries the burden of writing balanced, fair, contextualized and verified information. It cannot pander to the whims and caprices of the few, the favored, and the affluent alone. The public looks to it for facts and facts alone.

The NUJP, PCIJ, PDI, GMA and ABS-CBN seem to have fallen on hard times. They find themselves constantly defending their products, publications, portals. Why? They continue to slant their news. They have reneged on the trust that they have demanded from the public. They have become agents of propaganda and destabilization against the public and the peopl's mandate freely given to Duterte.

Instead of learning of the stories of our times, the glory of a nation rising from the ashes of apathy and disillusionment, we are forceibly drawn to the singular narrative of our own incompetence and incoherence, the biased media's story. Instead of being chroniclers of our stories, the stories of the public, they make their own.

Journalism is not creative writing. Journalism is the least creative form of literature. Its form is prosaic and rudimentary. Its substance straight facts, unembellished and unencumbered by creative imagination.

By taking their own twisted tales to replace our own, they have fallen short of what it means to be journalists. They have lost their way and can carry on no longer in their path to ruination. They have been weighed on the scales of truth, ethics and public discourse and have been found as severely lacking in form and in substance.

P. S. Baka naman "flout" and not "flaunt" ang gusto niyong sabihin, NUJP.
