The camp of Davao de Oro Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy slammed several radio broadcasters for spreading fake news about his alleged link to allegedly anomalous multi-million peso government projects involving road-building and heavy equipment purchase.
In a statement released to Davao Region media outlets on May 18, the camp of the governor dismissed the allegations as “10O% pure, unadulterated fake news peddled by hungry detergents in corrupt media fed with lies straight out of the garbage dump.”
The statement also blamed as behind the smear attack ” paid hacks in the broadcast media in Davao City and Tagum City in Davao del Norte , apparently fed with large sums to spread the lies in their broadcast reports and commentaries, who were infected by a corrupt politician with the lies that entered their anus, then spewed out of their mouth without passing through the brain.”
The statement did not identify the “paid hacks” in the media or the politician who paid them to spread the fake news against Governor Uy.
Negative commentaries and reports against Uy are regularly broadcast by FM radio broadcasters Roel Sembrano, Ka Mario, dodong david and Edward Macapili (College Instructor at St. Mary’s College Tagum City, College Economics Instructor Holy Cross of Davao College, Associate Economics Professor at University of Mindanao, Tagum Campus, anchorman – FM96.1 Infinite Radio Tagum City; and Jongjong Suyco, Bobby Largo, Bogart Salyot, dodong david, and Emy Horio of Power Radio 94.7 in Davao City.
Governor Uy is seeking reelection in next year’s polls as reports have it that his party mate 2nd District Rep. Peter Ruel Gonzaga is contesting his third and last term.
