It's interesting to see the coverage of this story on CNN U.S. I was watching At This Hour with Kate Bolduan who was asking Michelle Kosinski questions on the story, and there was a look of disgust on Bolduan's face. I know the majority of Filipinos love what he's doing to move the country forward. They may alienate some of their Filipino-American audience by displaying bias. Admittedly, I'm not too bothered by it. He is a controversial leader with thousands of extrajudicial killings under his belt. The difference that I see is that he hasn't tried to change the political system to give himself more power. He just wants to ensure that the country is clean before his term ends.
I think Anthony Bourdain should visit the Philippines again to show us what the Philippines is like under Duterte, and see whether or not the country had improved.
