RANT against Printed Media including Blogs

Nakaka inis minsan ...
Nakakatawa madalas ...
Disappointing always.


Yan ang state of English writing sa Pinas today.

Eto Buena Mano, from Manila Standard, August 26, 2017 article,
"PCGG heyday: Plus hotels, restos the norm" :

excerpt ... 'The previous practice of the concerned sequestered and surrendered corporations of “purchasing millions of pesos worth of gift checks and gift cards for distribution to its officers, and even to members of the media,” during the previous administration was already immediately terminated. '

Nakakaiyak ba?
Tulog ba ang editor?
And to think na magaling daw tayo sa English kaya nang dito ang mga BPO companies.

wag ka daw masyadong magaling mag-english, kundi mabansagan kang elitist.

We're talking correct grammar and proper writing techniques.
BTW English newspaper yan, hindi naman yung usap-usap lang sa kalye or where ever lang.


PS, why the "daw"? You heard it from someone else?
Ok lang to express your own opinion, I have thick skin naman, most of the time.
Haha

From PDI today:

"Agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Thursday conducted an ocular inspection on the controversial residence of Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog."

Not exactly wrong grammar BUT TERRIBLE sentence structure.

In the same PDI article,

"Clemente said “there were no records found referring of the transactions” regarding the purchase of medicines, fertilizer, sculptures and construction services."

Ayan, hindi makatiis, nag-wrong grammar na rin!

From PDI article published today:

" ...the President added, referring to Trillanes’ call to summon Paolo and Carpio to the Senate probe on the P6.4 billion shabu shipment, that resulted to a heated exchange between Trillanes and Senator Richard Gordon."

Weakness talaga ng mga Pinoy writers ang prepositions.

Manila Standard naman, hindi grammar kundi editing ang kulang.

'Aguirre explained that the Constitution provides that government officials, while still in office, are immune from any suit until his term ends.

“He’s still an impeachable officer and immune from suit,” Aguirre said.'

Any recommended books or guide to improve grammar? The Elements of Style is classic and for bloggers YAHOO Style Guide is a good resource.

Elementary and high school English books should suffice.
Simple errors lang naman pino-point out ko

@wilch23, yung spammers sa PMT Forum? Interestingly, parang hindi sila spam bots. Looks like they're paid human trolls and/or spammers. May required keyword na nga that has to be manually entered para makapag-register ng bagong account pero apparently nababasa nila yun, tapos may email verification pa to confirm if the email account exists, at nako-confirm pa rin nila, that's why they can register accounts in the Forum.

What I did to minimize spam is to block traffic coming from Russia and other countries na pinanggagalingan ng spam traffic. Recently nabawasan na yung spammers sa Forum.
