If you have read my open letter, I understand about your concern on IBC 13 and I pity how the network really worked out. We know that the Filipino people no longer watched it unlike the days of the old because of lack of repetitive and bland programming content. But what more is that the network cannot hold the financial bankruptcy due to the National Government’s mishandling and influence.
However, I noted that what you just published yesterday was even worse. Let me detail this “private-affair-turned-public” engagement point by point.
First, you mention the “due process” of IBC’s privatization. Indeed, it’s long overdue since sequestration of 1986. So far, the news is concerned is under the process of the Development Bank of the Philippines. However, the near-ending administration — despite their efforts to combat red tape through their campaign slogan — failed to reach the concrete goal and not to mention, the long overdue demand of employee remuneration worst among all broadcasting entities. Not to mention, the pending case on the joint venture scandal with a building contractor would also prolong such process.
Second, I would agree for C&L — cease and liquidate — but then again, due to the ownership, it would be difficult to attain compare those if it is under the hands of private citizens.
Third and the most important point I have ever noticed is you are attacking a reputable person in our Pinoy Nostalgia/Philippine TV Group with your NAME CALLING. Even though I deactivated a social media account to take my personal challenge of earning a title for a lifetime, I have engaged with him despite our recent difference in socio-political spectrum. I understand his political resentment by keeping mum or minimal interference. The main question I really need an answer is: “Do you really want to get arrested on the charge of online libel for 12 years?”
Nevertheless, I realize that you are getting impatient just like most of our netizens. This is indeed the negative behavior when it comes to exposure of social media.
What bachelor’s degree did you earn, again? Ah right, Mass Communication. Then, when you type your post in straight English, why is your simple proofreading instrument called “spelling and grammar” found on Microsoft Office isn’t applied before entering into the battle of differing thoughts? If Howie Severino said “Think before you click,” I say, “Proofread before you post.” That’s why you fail to reach the blogging standards akin to Ralph Domingo or JM Melegrito.
Do you think respect is earned from what you have written recently?
The judgment of the Pinoy Nostalgia community was right all along. Your insights online really showed immaturity and lack of trustworthiness.
Get real, Sir; look at the mirror and admit that you — not just being a weeaboo — are a disgrace to the community. You should be ashamed of yourself when you have a real job, such as a writer for a newspaper in the lifestyle section, magazine of anime and J-pop or even a reputable anime website.
You may be blacklisted soon, banned by bloggers (not just myself but maybe, From the Tube) and declare you persona non grata.
To end this letter, try reflecting on a line from a judge of the Decathlon in Adam Sandler’s 1995 film “Billy Madison” of what have you done.
I hope you will do something for the good of Filipino TV observers and critics.
