TRUMPISM: Philippines President Trumps Journalists

DutertePhilippine media groups expressed outrage Wednesday at president-elect Rodrigo Duterte’s endorsement of killing corrupt journalists, warning his comments could incite more murders.

Duterte, who won this month’s elections in a landslide, told reporters on Tuesday that there was justification for killing journalists who took bribes or engaged in other corrupt activities.

“Just because you’re a journalist you are not exempted from assassination, if you’re a son of a bitch,” Duterte said when asked how he would address the problem of media killings in the Philippines after a reporter was shot dead in Manila last week.
