Facebook offers to livestream Duterte’s inauguration — Andanar


Although only around 500 guests will be around to personally witness the inauguration of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte on June 30, ordinary citizens could have a chance to watch the historic event on Facebook if talks on the matter prosper.

Incoming Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said he will be meeting officials of the social networking giant soon to discuss how Duterte’s oath-taking ceremony could be broadcast to a wider audience.

“I’m meeting with the guys from Facebook. They’re flying over and they’re offering, they’re proposing to stream the entire event, the entire inaugural,” he told broadcast journalist Karen Davila over ANC’s “Headstart” on Friday (June 17).

Duterte will take his oath in simple rites at the Rizal Hall in Malacañang.

Andanar, a former news anchor, noted that streaming Duterte’s inauguration on Facebook is just one of the modern ways the incoming administration is trying to communicate with the President-elect’s fanbase, most of whom actively campaigned for him on social media.

The online streaming of the President-elect’s oath-taking will likely not be the last of Facebook’s collaboration with the incoming administration as Andanar said he will propose the use of the social networking site for broadcasting Duterte’s public briefings and other government announcements.

  1. Corrupt journalist is the right terms to be used for Karen Davila instead of broadcast journalist.

    Corruption in journalism is rampant same with drug operatives… eliminate them and free PH from these cancer of society.

  2. Galing bagong media natin Facebook para maka update lahat di na mag hihintay sa mga bias na media. Sorry Media your out Social network in na inn

  3. Now, who needs the news more? Pres. Duterte or the bias media? For a tough talking President every word he spoke is news. Now, bias media can’t even go near him. This is a big overdose of their own medicine!

  4. Walang gawang masama ang hinde malalantad sa liwanag 30years na namalagi ang kamalian sa pagpapahayag sa ating bansa ngayon lang nabulgar at sila mismo ang nagpatunay na sila ay hinde parehas.. Good bye bias media artista na lang ang inyong ibalita or maghanap kayo ng mga drug lord at ng siya ninyong isa publiko at gatasan ng malaking halaga.
