Journalist slams ph media
In a Facebook post on his FB page, Syet Da Pwet, Panganiban said that he once went in Ozamiz to do a story on the Kuratong Baleleng. He then shares that "even the cops there at that time were so scared of the Parojinogs they would not talk to reporters about the family that controls KB."

Kindly read his full post below.

In 1994, I went to Osamiz to do a story on the Kuratong Baleleng.

I will tell you this, even the cops there at that time were so scared of the Parojinogs they would not talk to reporters about the family that controls KB.

Now there are stories circulating how good people the Parojinogs are? Just like how nice people the Abu Sayyaf were. Good job local media!!! Good job!!!

Kaya madaming kriminal sa bansa dahil ang media natin ginagawa silang bayani. They are romanticized instead of villified.

Ang masakit nito, yung mga pulis at sundalo ang pinapalabas na may sala kahit maayos ang operasyon.

Tapos pag lugmok na ang bansa natin, magsisilayas papuntang ibang bansa yung mga mayayaman na may-ari ng media natin.

Ang maiiwan, yung mga kawawang media workers na hindi na binigyan ng tamang benepisyo iniwan pa sa kangkungan.

Kailan kaya tayo matututo? Mapa-mamamayan o media pa man?

Netizens also show their sentiments by commenting on his post. They said:

I was there a few years ago. Ozamiz was such a backwater city in the midst of a progressive region (Northern Mindanao). Majority of people I talked to there seemed self-defeated and admittedly were helpless as long as the Parojinogs stayed in power. Heck. Even cops as far as Cagayan de Oro dreaded to be reassigned to Ozamiz.
Im from mindanao, north cotabato, born and raised, pero pra sa akin, ang pinaka nkakatakot na lugar na napuntahan ko ay ang ozamis. The first time na nkapunta ako (college) pagbaba ko pa lang sa barge, grabe ang snatcher, kahit nakikita ko at ng mga classmates ko,binuksan amg zipper ng bag ko at hinalukay. Hindi ka mka reklamo.sabi ng classmate ko na tga ozamis,hwag daw sisigaw, o pipigilan kasi baka ma saksak pa ako.
agree.. parang pinagmumuka pa nilang kawawa yung pamilya na un, to think na kitang kita naman mga kinasangkutan nilang krimen. kaya mnsan di na rin ako naniniwala sa mga binabalita sa tv, mas reliable pa mga blogger. mas totoo ang sinasabi.
