Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 09/29/2020 - 14:42
MANILA, Philippines --- Malacaang on Tuesday questioned why Facebook only shut down pages that were in support of the government, but not those criticizing the administration. Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque lamented how the social media platform supposedly stepped on freedom of speech and exercised "censorship" when it took down pages of "advocacy groups" on Facebook. "Ang sinasabi ni Presidente, dapat maging patas sila. Bakit ang freedom of speech binibigay lang nila sa mga kontra gobyerno? Bakit naman sinusupil nila yung boses ng kampi po sa gobyerno?" Roque said in an online briefing. (What the President is saying is for them to be fair. Why are they only giving freedo...

CLEVELAND ---There'll be no handshake, but venom to spare when President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden meet in Cleveland on Tuesday for the first of three televised debates that could shake up an already volatile race for the White House. Covid-19 restrictions will give the debate moderated by Fox News star Chris Wallace a streamlined look with a smaller audience. Naturally, there won't be the once standard -- even if occasionally forced -- show of goodwill in shaking hands as the rivals go on stage. What the 90-minute clash will have is a chance for Americans finally to see Trump, 74, and Biden, 77, go head to head. With Trump claiming Biden is virtually brain dead ...

PARIS --- Leaders of countries once subjugated to Western powers sent a pointed message at this year's U.N. General Assembly: For those who think the word "colonialism" evokes a long-ago, no-longer-relevant era, think again. Several leaders raised this year's global protests inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States and renewed demands for reparations for the slave trade, calling them just one step in a still-unfinished reckoning with crimes of former empires. The onetime French colony of New Caledonia -- still run by Paris, more than 10,000 miles and 10 time zones away -- is voting Sunday on whether to break free. A Congolese activist is going on trial Wedne...
