ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) got slammed by netizens  yesterday, September 29, for uploading a fabricated photo on its Facebook page.

 

Netizens decried the fact that the image-which showed DPWH Undersecretary Romeo Momo with Metro Manila Regional Director Reynaldo Tagudando and South Manila District Engineer Mikunug Macud talking, with the damaged Manila Bay seawall in the background-seemed to have been altered via Photoshop. (See photo below.)

The DPWH eventually apologized for the photo faux pas. (See screehshot of the statement, which was taken from the agency’s Facebook page, below.)



 

Jojo Malig, who wrote the ABS-CBNNews.com report, quoted Pierre Albert San Diego, a civil engineer, who said in his blog, Controlled Chaos: "Some say this is a very minor issue, but I see this is as a nice sample of DPWH's lack of integrity." Many others echoed San Diego’s sentiments.

The DPWH Central Office’s Facebook administrators have deleted the fabricated photo and uploaded new images, presumably unaltered. (See the tandem photo below, which has also been posted on the DPWH Facebook page.)
