WHY OMBUDSMAN STORY ON CORONA IS MALICIOUS!
Allow me to further explain the malice behind the publication in the Philippine Daily Inquirer of Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales’ order to Chief Justice Renato Corona to explain graft complaints against him before her office.
I write this as a former senior editor of the Journal Group of Publications.
Morales’ letter to
was dated April 20. Corona
If there was NO HIDDEN AGENDA behind the letter, it should have been released by the Office of the Ombudsman to media on the same day.
Not just to the Philippine Daily Inquirer but to ALL THE REPORTERS from all the newspapers and TV and radio stations covering it. Any media firm could have come out with the story because it’s an official communication. All they had to do was get the side of
But quite clearly, the Office of the Ombudsman did not immediately release the story.
If it did, even if too late for the deadlines of print and broadcast media, reporters assigned at the Ombudsman would have filed their stories the very next day, April 21.
Only an insane reporter would not have done so with a story like that. More importantly, he or she will be SCOOPED by other reporters who will write the story.
For those not familiar with media work, being scooped is a MORTAL SIN in the eyes of editors. The reporter had better have an airtight justification why he or she did not file the story to appease the editors.
Therefore, the story would have hit the front pages of the newspapers and the airwaves by April 22. Only an IDIOT of an editor or a publisher would not come out with it immediately.
Both print and broadcast media are for FRESH NEWS. That’s what the people want.
If any story, especially front-page stuff like Morales’ letter/order to
is kept under wraps for several days before it is published or aired, there is
a VERY SPECIAL REASON BEHIND IT. Corona
Whatever it is, your guess is as good as mine!
No editor or publisher would admit to STUPIDITY OR INSANITY. Or even childish behavior by saying “Wala lang, trip ko lang na hindi agad ilabas.”
As far as I know, Morales’ letter/order to
was an exclusive
by the Inquirer. Anybody correct me if I’m wrong. But if I’m not, Morales or
her staff had better have a damned justifiable explanation for it. Corona
Because if not, it will be VERY DIFFCULT TO BELIEVE that the Inquirer IS NOT A YELLOW PAPER, or is in collaboration with the anti-Corona camp.
Another thing that Morales or her staff must justify is why did it take three days, from April 20 to 23, before her letter reached
The Chief Justice was only in Corona that time for the
summer sessions of the Supreme Court. Baguio
IT DOESN’T TAKE THREE DAYS to reach

Who has all the motives in the world to demolish
with whatever it takes but the obsessive Abnoy!! Abnoy hates Corona more than anything in the world. Then,
he tells his dumb followers his fighting corruption daw. As long as we remain
stupid, there will be many more abnoys to ruin this already ruined society. Corona

This only shows how desperate they are. What next? So what if
million, can they prove the money is ill gotten? This good for nothing mouthpiece
of the good for nothing president should hush up. What a freakin idiot. It
won't take a rocket scientist to know that Penoy is doing this because of the
Supreme Court's ruling against him and his clan. Corona

I told you, guys. It ain’t over despite the SC ruling.... their strategy is to create doubt in the minds of all so that the senator-judges in their pockets will not have a problem giving the guilty vote. Easiest thing to do is via the dollar account since the Senate can’t touch it unless the owner specifically says so. Other than that,
takes the witness
stand and you know what will happen then. Corona
What do you expect from a kiss-ass like this Lacierda? What are dogs supposed to do for their masters? 'We' also know that he is as dishonest as they come intellectually. That is why he is the megaphone of the most luxurious mental institution called Malascana(ng). 30
