- Tatanglawin hits President Duterte this time
- President Duterte’s war on drugs featured on Matanglawin Ateneo’s lampoon issue
Matanglawin Ateneo (official FB Page) is the official student newspaper of Ateneo de Manila University. It’s lampoon counterpart, Tatanglawin, first made itself heard after their publication of Mochang Tanga Blog. This issue targeted Mocha Uson, Presidential Communications Operations Office Assistant Secretary.
Tatanglawin has become well known for being aggressive and brave in their issues. This time, the target of their issue is no less than President Duterte himself. Their new issue, entitled F.H.M. (For His Malacañang), tackles issues that are thrown to President Duterte lately.
Tagged “Kating-kati ka na ba? Huhubarin natin lahat.”, this controversial issue got so many negative comments from the netizens who were obviously avid supporters of the President.
They were disgusted not only with the pictures but also with the manner the President’s war on drugs was featured. Aside from the controversial tagline, this issue also showed edited pictures of the President in some not so nice photos.
Some concerned citizens have recently hit the President on his war against drugs; many cases of which have gone out of hand, so to speak. Many claimed that not all those supposed “addicts and pushers” that have been killed are really what they were made to appear. They say that they were just mere victims of the men in uniform.

The issue also targeted the Chief of the Philippine National Police, Bato Dela Rosa; tackling the dark sides of the operations regarding the war on drugs that many are now claiming to be going out of proportion.
You can say that this Tatanglawin issue took a lot of courage, not minding that they are targeting such a high profile issue that puts the highest official of the country in a bad taste.
