MTRCB sanction GMA over demonizing depiction of Filipino nurses

This petition had 56 supporters

We would like to respectfully call your attention on the degrading and incriminating portrayal of Filipino nurses in one of the GMA Network’s segment “Sunday Pinasaya” aired October 29, 2017.

The said demeaning, shallow, and seemingly demonizing depiction of the nursing profession is not only nauseating but also detrimental to the professional image of nurses. Furthermore, it is a clear violation of our Code of Ethics and right to be respected as a profession.

As a hardworking nurses, who strive to elevate the standards of our profession despite the meager pay and injustices affecting nursing in the country, we were deeply disturbed upon seeing the said episode. It did not only offend our fellow nurses here in the archipelago but also our thriving nurses abroad.

We personally seek refuge from your good office to investigate and if possible sanction this kind of media contents. We believe that the words and context weaved during the TV episode were defamatory to the good name and reputation of our profession.
