Vico Sotto rages as news outlet recycles old quote to pit him vs Inday Sara

0

The dirty electioneering has started and Vico Sotto became an early target.

The Pasig City mayor had to call out how he was misquoted by an online media group which used an old quote he said about the Eusebios and made it appear like he was dissing Presidential daughter and early poll leader Sara Duterte-Carpio.

“Maaaring totoo ang quote, pero last year pa at HINDI presidential elections ang topic!! Misquoted ng ibang Dilawan group para sumakto sa naratibo nila.. kaso lang, naniwala ang iilang supporters ng Presidente at kaya nagalit,” Sotto said, frustrated.

The old quote read as: “Hindi lang iisang pamilya ang magaling. Let’s find the next generation of leaders who will be better than the leaders that we already had.”

He took a screenshot of the misquote and labeled it as such in big, bold letters.

The politiko also took the opportunity to educate his followers on better media literacy.

“Laganap talaga ang fake news at dadami pa ito habang lumalapit eleksyon. Maging mapanuri. Hindi porket gusto (o ayaw) mo ang quote ay totoo na,” he said.

“Dito sa Pasig, WORK MODE lang tayo. Wag nating intidihin ang maiingay na boses na mahilig gumawa ng intriga. Sa lungsod pa lang, ang dami na nating kailangan gawin; hindi ngayon ang panahon para makikisawsaw sa national politics,” Sotto added. “Masyado na tayong polarized bilang mga Pilipino. Basta sa Pasig, welcome ang lahat ng partido. Hindi natin kailangan gumaya sa politika ng iba.”
