{DISCLAIMER: The following open letter is written by Bruce Rivera}

Dear Mr. Tima,

Yes, we get it. You are still angry because of the “catcalling” issue but is it really necessary to do this? PNoy said no to wang-wang but there was no serious threat to his life. Even his haters do not want to kill him.

But this time, our President is fighting a war that has all the means to fight back and kill him. He knows the threat to his life and he knows that some of the people presently kissing his ass are the very one out to destroy him. He knows very well that his enemies will go to the extent of destroying even his avid supporters to discredit him and everything he stands for.

So cut him some slack and leave the Filipino in peace not to worry about the safety of our President because a journalist is complaining about traffic in EDSA as if it was a rare occurrence. In fact, our President did not claim to fix the EDSA traffic in his term. He knows it is impossible. So quit on the nitpicking and just understand that we want our President alive to make good his promise.

Because in reality, I am used to the traffic in EDSA. That is why I avoid it. But I would rather worry about traffic than worry whether I am going to be alive if ever I traverse that road.

We ask but a little understanding.
Thank you.

  1. Tama po kayo Sir Bruce, para sa akin kahit na matrapik pa ako sa Edsa basta safely lang si PDU30 dahil alam ko na magkakaroon din ng solusyon ang trapik sa mga darating na panahon, pero ang mawala si PDU30 kung sakaling may mangyari sa kanya ay dahil lamang sa mga ganung rason ay hindi ako papayag dahil mawawala na lahat ang ating pag asa na inaasam-asam… Ako po hindi ko na ini expect na meron yan sasabihin na maganda sa ating Pangulong Duterte… dahil alam naman natin kung anu ang nangyari…

      I didn’t give Noynoy slack, why should I give duts slack? Kung kinaya ni Noynoy dapat makaya din ni Duts.

      Bastos man si President,pero hindi yan nakaapekto sa para salahat ng mga mamayan na nag nais ng pagbabago,namatay nalang si Nenoy ganon parin ang bansa natin,rape dito rape doon,may nagawa ba sila wala,kahit kunting bagay nalang yung linisin ang Devisoria or Baklaran wala,kasi wala silang pakialam sa atin sa atin,,para sa iyo Raffy Tima ang ginawa ni Duterte para sa mga anak mo na maging safety ang buhay nila at maranasan ng mga anak mo at anak natin ang magandang buhay,at may mukha tayong iharap sa buong na ang bansa natin ay hindi korap,,BALIK SA TEMA SA TRAPIK AKALA MAGALING KA !!!!RAFFY TIMA BOBO KA RIN PALA;taonan pa bago masolosyunan yan,hintay ka ng 2 years bago ka mag husga,hindi 2 days!!!!!hindi yan magic.

    • Why the hate on the President. Raffy Tima should be proud pinansin ni Pres. Duterte yung wife mo kahit hindi maganda. Chill out, napaka seloso mo naman, you are insecure, Raffy Tima, dapat wala ka sa media.

  2. Aida legaspi

    To Mr.Tima, Learn to forget about it.If you think about it ,it is such a petty thing to harbour until now.There was no physical harm done.Other girls would love it coming from the president.Just chill and relax.

  3. Dolly Ridings

    President duterte follow the traffic no special treatment they stop at the stop light and follow the traffic

  4. Dolly Ridings

    Why Blame President Duterte? He did not even ask for special treatment he stop at the stop light and follow the traffic rules…gusto lang magpapansin itong media man na ito letse!!!!

  5. halata naman na may galit pa tlga, dagdag na din siguro na hanggang ngaun hindi pa din sila makainterview kay duterte dahil isa din ang istasyon nila sa mga bias, wag ganon Mr. Raffy, relax ka lang, bakit snay ka ba na walang traffic? wow ah, be mature, think before you click, think before you complain.

  6. Ugali ng media ng makapag bigay ng kumento sa bawat pangyayari. Kaya ok lang yan.. Part of criticisms yan.. Hindi makatatakas ang ating mahal na Pangulo sa mga ganyan. Alam na yan ng ating mahal na pangulo. ?????

  7. Mr Tima, Kung wala ka ng magandang maipaabut sa sambayanang Pilipino, its better kung mag resign kana sa trabaho mo kasi hindi naman lahat ng mamahayag ay katulad mo tuloy ung ibang gumagawa at nagbabalita ng mga katutuhanan eh nadadamay sa mga #BIASMONGPAGBABALITA.

  8. Boo huhu Raffy is still licking his wounds from that issue about his wife who got too close and personal with the presumptive president for a “private” interview INSIDE A CAR! Wow Mariz, just how close and personal were you willing to go? What a conduct unbecoming of a reporter. Then you start hassling Duterte for a mere insignificant cat call? Are you suddenly that important to the world? What a delusional moron you are. Do you even deserve a cat call? I thought idiots like you go for cheap candies lolsss.

  9. I’m not treating our President as a messiah that will change this forsaken country so he can have all the special treatment he needs but rather a leader that will lead the society of this nation to change for the benefit of all. Yes i understand the catcalling is not appropriate, but still, it depends how you will interpret it. if you take it seriously, then you will be upset for sure. i understand that because i’m also a married person, but one thing is for sure, i’m not gonna use that catcalling issue to whine and complain about the traffic cause by the President’s convoy as if that traffic here in this country is a rare occurrence. Come on don’t make that lame excuse to blame the President, instead let’s just all unite for the better of this country…

  10. hanggang ngayon ba hindi pa nakaka move on na si tima?

  11. bakla yan c raffy tima..TinaMaan ng kabaklaan nya,,,ginagamit nya ang pagkajourno nya bulok na journo kamo,,,……?????????move on dudes…truth hurts…..

  12. myra aragon

    i am no Pdu30 fan (bcoz i hate his language)..but cmon just because u have something personal against him is not fair for anybody just to nitpick him..lets give him the chance that indeed he can bring change to our country its high time to clean our country of graft and corruption and most especially crimes and drug related crimes

    • Why?whats wrong with our presidents language? Is he speaking chinese or something else that isnt filipino?

  13. True Pinoy

    kung bitter siya sa kanyan eh di hamunin niya ng duelo para matapos na yung sama ng loob niya at mabigyan ng daan kung ano gusto niya…kaartehan.

  14. Macqueline Palalay

    Thank you for such a classy, tactful way of addressing the Raffy Tima problem. He needs to grow up, expand his tunnel vision, and learn the difference between a man–a president-elect at that–complimenting and harassing a woman, in this case his reporter wife. I saw the entire video of the incident. I am a woman, too, and I did not see any hint of harassment on then President- elect Duterte’s part. If anything, he was merely complimenting a woman reporter and lightening up the atmosphere at an otherwise tedious and tiring press conference: talking mostly about the nation’s ills. It is not a crime to be complimenting and serenading a woman–not if there is no malice nor sexual connotation involved, per the Davao ordinance. Tima should be flattered instead. That is, if he knows any better.

  15. Isam na sa listahan ng bibitayin yang si Tima, as in Timang hahahaha

  16. Wow ,ga amigo amiga wag na ninyp patulan as if may K yung dahilan for all this bruhaha magfefeling long hair lang ang dahilan hahahaha honestly if to be rated ang root cause nito grade of 1-10 level 3 lang quite lucky enough to get a catcall whistle…. anyways my opinion only cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Tweeet-tweeet! Whew! malayo ang tingin, wala namang tinatanaw…at kapansin-pansin na traffic ang North Bound. Move on na po Mr.Tima-wa. Sabi nga dito, let’s hope na kung papalarin, yung mga anak natin ang makikinabang, unless…sterile ka. Hindi po magic ang solusyon sa traffic sa Pinay, kahit sa probinsiya na ma-traffic na rin, hindi dahil sa makitid ang daan, kundi dahil makitid ang utak ng ibang kabayan natin na hindi marunong maki-isa at sumunod sa batas tulad ng ipinakikita po ninyo.

  18. Tweeet-tweeet! Whew! malayo ang tingin, wala namang tinatanaw…at kapansin-pansin na traffic ang North Bound. Move on na po Mr.Tima-wa. Sabi nga dito, let’s hope na kung papalarin, yung mga anak natin ang makikinabang, unless…sterile ka. Hindi po magic ang solusyon sa traffic sa Pinas, kahit sa probinsiya na ma-traffic na rin, hindi dahil sa makitid ang daan, kundi dahil makitid ang utak ng ibang kabayan natin na hindi marunong maki-isa at sumunod sa batas tulad ng ipinakikita po ninyo.

  19. Sayang, mas maganda sana ang outcome kung positive ang naging comment mo kay DU30. Kung ako ang asawa ni Maris eto sasabihin ko in one way or another: “Hindi po katanggap-tangap ang pag-sipol sa isang babae, pero nag-papasalamat ako kay Digong at napansin ang angking kagandahan ng asawa ko na nagsisilbing inspirasyon sa aking pagkiki-salamuha sa mga tao at sa trabaho ko.” Positive reinforcement ang tawag po dito.

  20. to raffy tima wala ka nang nagawa kundi ang pagka OA mo ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha!

  21. nenita pacano taguinod

    Hay Raffy wag nman ganyan move on n para sa economya ng bansa

  22. Jude F Dapitan

    making mockery to the new President makes you lousy no commonsense and hater person. Who among you can change EDSA in a snap of your hand or wading your magic wand and presto…pag nagawa mo.. ikaw na…

  23. Raffy i admire for being a good broadcaster/reporter but regretted it when you are unbecoming to what happened. Raffy i know you are an educated person sana tapusin mo na itong ipinakikita mong hindi maganda ugali. Gusto mo iboycott namin ang mga programa mo? Magisip isip ka?

  30. meracap

  32. Kuyang Christian Cabal

  33. over acting lang si raffy timang este tima…kulang sa pansin…hala pasikatin…

  34. marife fabriag norondoz

    Tima-ng ka pala eh! parang di naman traffic jan araw2,ginawan mo pa ng issue si pres.duterte,si pres.duterte walang presyo ang buhay dahil nabubuhay siya sa pagmamahal ng sambayanang pilipino,nabubuhay sa prinsipyo para sa mamamayan,si panot mahal na 5hundred para ipapatay siya.

  35. ayaw ko na manood ng pagbabalita nya mula ngayon, minus one

  36. Rod M. Gutierrez

    Raffy Tima, just be man enough. stop acting like a crying baby, be professional, maya bigyan ka ng attention ng mga sumusuporta at nagmamahal sa aming Pangulo bigla ka na lang manahimik. focus ka sa creed at vision ng journalism. be a good, responsible at objective journalist, do not be like the late Jun Pala. ikaw din.

  37. Ganyan talaga si tima gusto magpapansin o kaya nagsiselos yan..hoy bobo mag move on kana walang sasakay sayo.

  38. Sabi nga, when you’re mad or angry your mouth works faster than your brain. Ganyan ang nangyari kay Raffy. Ang kaibahan lang naging sagad sa buto ang galit nya sa Presidente. Raffy didn’t realize that harboring anger could cause so much trouble in his physical makeup. The problem with most mediamen is that they’re too expert to build a mountain out of a molehill.
