Analysis / Bias
In review, with opinion pieces, the paper leans towards the left with the choice of words both on headlines and articles such as this “Dolomite populism”. A quote from the article reads “Climate change is real, with the Philippines consistently ranking among the most vulnerable nations on earth. What we desperately need beyond resilience is proactive governance, not performative “dolomite populism.” The article is also critical of right-leaning President Duterte.
The Philippine Daily Inquirer also publishes articles with emotionally loaded language such as “Duterte threatens to be Robredo’s ‘nightmare‘ if she runs for president” and “After Duterte’s address, Robredo tells President: Don’t be onion-skinned.”
