In President Duterte’s statement “Yan lang pantakot niya sa akin. Hindi sya magpabili ng armas? Eh karaming de bomba dito” was translated in English as They’re (US) using it to scare me. They don’t want it to sell their weapons? We have a lot of bomb makers here.”
“Lechugas naman. De bomba means air gun and not bomb maker. And these are serious legit journalists and professional editors with degrees in journalism,” Contreras said in his post.
Contreras also mentioned in his Facebook post that they have made it appear that the President was making a threat.
Some netizens also gave their arguments:
LenDante Clarino quoted “as there are ‘lihistigators’ (wayward legislators with appetites of greedy alligators) in congress, there are those who are nalihis na journalists. The erstwhile much-admired Karen Davila is one such journo who has stopped into this direction.”
Meanwhile,, Jules Penales also gave advice to the media people in his comment he said “Dapat maging maingat sa translation literal or contextual para hindi magkabuhol-buhol ang buay natin.”
