Pnoy again lambasted media for what he called its daily negativism of his administration despite his purported achievements during the anniversary celebration of TV Patrol.
He even ARROGANTLY but COWARDLY, and I mean every letter of these two adjectives, lambasted TV Patrol anchor and former Vice President Noli de Castro – hitting the man without naming him but giving descriptions which can only refer to De Castro like having been a former government official for six years.
So allow me, ladies and gentlemen, to defend not only De Castro but my former colleagues in media as a whole (I’m a former senior editor of the Journal Group of Publications).
Media’s primary job is to report WHAT HAS HAPPENED or WHAT IS HAPPENING. They broadcast or write about what they ACTUALLY saw or see, NOT WHAT Pnoy or any other person want the people to see or hear about in media.
LEGALLY, MORALLY and ETHICALLY, Pnoy has NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER to CONTROL or INFLUENCE media on what and what should not come out in the newspapers or be aired on radio and TV.
HINDI NA KASALANAN ng media kung MAS MARAMI ang PALPAK o MALI sa mga pinaggagagawa o pinagsasasabi ni Pnoy o ng mga tauhan nya. Lalong HINDI TRABAHO ng media na TURUAN MUNA SILA ng gagawin bago magulat ang mga ito.
If Pnoy wants more positive news about him, then HE MUST DO MORE GOOD THINGS than bad. How he does it is his problem, not media’s.
If he wants positive news about him daily, then he had better work and do good things daily. Media WILL NOT LIE for him just because he is the President of the country.
He claims accomplishments and achievements which are not given prominence and media, unlike negative stories against him and his government.
For those who are not so familiar with media work, the prominence and length given to a story before it is printed or is aired DEPENDS ON, primarily, the SPECIFICS and VOLUME of the details and the issue.
Mas detalyado at mas napapanahon ang paksa ng storya, mas pinalalaki at binibigyang importansiya sa media.
Pero kung ang sinasabi lamang sa istorya ay bilyun-bilyong piso na ang nagastos sa ganun o ganitong proyekto, o milyun-milyon na ang nakikinabang at naipagawa na ganito at ganun SUBALIT WALA NI ISANG PANGALAN ng nakikinabang o EKSAKTONG LOKASYON ng diumano’y proyekto, WALA itong karapatan na maging malaking balita sa dyaryo, radio o telebisyon.
KAHIT NA SI PNOY o sinumang maging presidente pa ng bansa ang magpahayag nito.
Some media people may be abusing the profession, yes.
But that does not give Pnoy a FREE PASS to attack the integrity of the profession and its members as a WHOLE and get away with it anytime he wants.
Unless Pnoy and his minions are IGNORANT ENOUGH not to know, complaints against media people can be relayed directly to the top editors and officials of the newspaper or radio or TV station.
Even to the National Press Club or to the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas.
Sa halip na BASTUSIN ang kinaiinisang taga-media sa harap ng maraming tao, pangalanan man ito o hindi.
Trabaho lang ang ginagawa ng media, walang personalan. Kung may magkamali man o umabuso, hindi nangangahulugan na pare-pareho na silang lahat. At lalong HINDI MATATAKOT ang media kaninuman at kailanan, maging sa presidente ng bansa, na BUMATIKOS kung kinakailangan.
Complaints or charges can be filed against us if we get abusive. But if Pnoy thinks he can intimidate or scare media into BLIND SUBMISSION by humiliation or any other means, he’s having his WORST NIGHTMARE.
UBOS NA ANG TAKOT NAMIN, Mr. President!
From our friends:
SUPALPAL NA NAMAN SI PNOY!
Lagi na lang.
Talagang gusto niya, kangaroo court. Doon na lang sila sa
kasi! Magsama sila ni Assad (at isama ang mga komunistang friends niya). Syria
Pnoy’s comment against the judge's decision is contempt of court. He should be cited for contempt.
I won't be surprised if the Writ of Habeas Corpus will be suspended one of these days just to get anyone arrested without any court order.

Malamang, bukas-makalawa eh bago na ang head ng Sandiganbayan!
AIDA RODRIGUEZ RUBIANO
I am just curious why the sudden "change of heart"? Don't get me wrong, i am happy with these positive developments, but I can't help but wonder why Judge Mupas suddenly followed the rule of law, as well as the Sandiganbayan? What's going on? I hope and pray that the rule of law continues to prevail
RONILO ACABO of
Pag na-supalpal, sisisihin ang referee (Judge Mupas). It's really very dangerous to have an idiot promoted to dictator.
ALBERT LEE of
I find it hard to believe how things are being handled by the Palace people.
BHABES ORTIZ of
Noon, sinasabi nila ang dictator si FM. Ngayon, sino ang dictator at wala sa lugar ang mga pinaggagawa? Hindi lamang sila mga dictator, mga demonyo pa!
Nakakatakot na makalaban ang pinakamataas na tao ng bansa tulad ni Penoy. Pansinin mo, lahat ay bumabaligtad sa kanilang paninindigan, dahil sa itong pwesidente natin ngayon ay isang taong mapaghiganti. Ginagamit ang kanyang kapangyarihan para sa kanyang personal na kagustuhan. Mahirap at napaka saklap kapag ito ang mga katangian ng isang pwesidente.
TOOTS SYLED of
Boyet Antonio, talaga namang SUPALPAL si Pnoy!! Puro PALPAK ang mga decisions niya! Nagwawala na naman yan. He is throwing himself on the floor Buti nga.! Mas masahol pa siya sa mga Nazi. Thank you Lord at iniligtas mo si Madam GMA!!
ROMEO CASTRO of
Supalpal din si PNoy dapat sa impeachment ni
, kaya lang wala
yatang rule of law sa Senado. Rule of the senators lang. Corona
Nice take here. Thanks, Boyet. I'm a bit intrigued by Robert de Castro's comment on GMA's trick on PCOS which seem to me as a validation og HocusPCOS. I'm conducting "research" on this for an article. Puwede ma elaborate pa to tie loose ends. Thanks.
JOE ALVARADO JR. of
Baka iimpeach naman ang mga judge at justices sa Sandiganbayan
LOLITA BELEN of Caboyao, Laguna
It only shows that UNDER THE RULE OF LAW ...he is POWERLESS!
ROBERT FUENTECILLA of
Pinamamadali na naman ni Pnoy ang pagaresto kay Gloria. Kaso, the Sandiganbayan exercised the rule of law and evidence. Wala pa siguro probable cause to do that.
CECIL CORTES of Nagoya-shi,
Sa case naman ni CJ
, Senado ang nag MANE-OBRA na walang
alam sa batas at tingin nila, sila ay mas mataas pa sa batas. Corona
Mr. Antonio, si Penoy ang diktador na bobo, walang alam kahit ano except paglalaro ng video games! 30
