A reporter of ABS-CBN show The Correspondents is being shown tonight not just reporting on ‘pagpag’, the leftover food gathered by scavengers and re-cooked for consumption by some of our poor kababayans.
I am aghast because the reporter himself actually participated in re-cooking and preparing ‘pagpag’ and joined his interviewees in partaking of the meal. I think this is not only gross, but unwittingly endorses ‘pagpag’ despite previous reports citing health officials and specialists who say that ‘pagpag’ is dangerous to humans.
I think the network have much to explain to the audience.
Below is an episode of rival GMA Network’s Sine Totoo episode on people living on trash and “pagpag”:
