Just my Opinion
By Raïssa Robles
Not that the incumbent Philippine president hasn’t been acting offensively toward women, human rights advocates, etc.
Well, apparently CBS just upped the ante by actually inserting a character called the “Philippine President” and making him act in character, at least insofar as the current President goes.
The interesting thing to watch out is – what will MTRCB member Mocha Uson do?
What will the Philippine government do?
Will it ban local cable TV from showing this episode? Or Madame Secretary?
Or will it block foreign websites like Netflix from being able to provide the show?
I was told that during the recent Metro Manila Film Festival, there was an effort by the government to “persuade” those in charge of screening which films to show in movie houses not to include a particular film that mentioned extra-judicial killings. But the screeners stood pat and included the film in the line-up of movies to show.
Perhaps Mocha Uson’s role is to protect the President’s image and the government from films and TV shows that depict the Duterte government in a bad light.
