THE ILOCOS TIMES… Bow!

21 01 2010


THANK YOU SO MUCH to one of this blog’s readers, Del for informing me about this.

The Ilocos Times, a local publication up north copied my Christmas-themed articles last year and re-printed them as an editorial in the paper’s January 11 to January 17, 2010 issue.

Below the editorial title is a disclaimer of sorts: “The following is an article written by Johnny Mercado.” In all fairness, there was an attribution. Right click here to see the online edition of the paper.

I don’t know who Johnny Mercado is. The last time I checked, my birth certificate says “M****** Landicho” was STILL my real name. [Now you know. Ha-ha!]

The person who alerted me on the Ilocos Times editorial surmised that the “Johnny Mercado” being referred to was Ilocos Times columnist, Juan Mercado. Isn’t he the same Juan Mercado who writes for the Philippine Daily Inquirer? Correct me please if I got it all wrong.

But seriously, Ilocos Times people are legitimate journalists aren’t they? Why the need to copy-paste a compilation of political humor musings to come up with an editorial? Ang daming isyu, ang daming usapin, ang daming pangyayaring puwedeng suriin at busisiin ng mga editors, bakit kailangan pang humiram sa iba?

What were they thinking?

In contrast, Philippine Star columnist William Esposo re-printed the same post in his column last December 31 but he did ask for my permission before he published the article.

Please do not misinterpret this post. Wala po akong kinikita mula sa blog na ito kahit isang sentimo. Kaya konting attribution lang po sana sa mga sinulat ko, masaya na ‘ko.

I hope this piece reaches the staff of The Ilocos Times. Come on guys, you can do better than that. Halimbawa, kopyahin n’yo ang editoryal ng Inquirer o ng Philippine Star. Just kidding.

Sana ket umuna kuma nga inammo yo ta source yo bago kayo nga nagsurat ken nagkopya. Agyamanak!

I’m not mad. In fact, I’m half-flattered. Paano naman ako magagalit eh bigla kong nakita ang larawang ito mula sa GMA News website. President Arroyo recently bestowed the Order of Sikatuna with the Rank of Datu to outgoing US Ambassador Kristie Kenney.


Ano ang angkop na caption, deskripsyon o pamagat sa larawang ito?
A: “O, Gloria, pakabait ka huh. Huwag mong sayangin ang nine years of unwavering support ng Washington sa ‘yo.”
B: “Oo naman. Kaya nga tatakbo ulit ako para maipagpatuloy ko ang aking mga nasimulan na tinolerate n’yo naman!”
C: “If we were guys, they might describe this moment as ‘bromance.’ But since, we’re both women, ito ang tinatawag na ‘breast friends.’”
D: “Mabuti pa ‘yung sa ‘yo, totoo. ‘Yung sa ‘kin, kaliwa na lang ang natural.”

i know the feeling!!! buti nga di mo inaway. madalas mangyari sa akin iyan. i used to be an online columnist tapos blogger din ako at mga strangers din nagvivisit ng blog ko (hindi kasing sikat mo, though, hehe ) at nabubuwiset ako na ang daming nagke-claim ng mga articles ko as their own (at nilalagay nila sa blog nila na kunwari sila ang nagsulat… alam ko ito kasi tambay ako sa google hehe.) iyong iba naman, nafo-forward ng nafo-forward sa email na walang credit sa akin or sa site na sinusulatan ko. like you, i don’t get paid for writing online articles so umaasa na lang ako na make-credit ako sa mga articles ko na nafo-forward.

heto ang matindi… even a famous writer (sasabihin ko basta pramis mo di mo ipa-publish kasi nag sorry naman siya sa akin at sinabing ike-credit nya ako sa compilation ng essays niya) used phrases from my article and put it sa article niya… as in verbatim…

di ko siya kinontak dahil sikat nga siya at mas matanda ng ilang dekada sa akin pero siguro when he googled his name once, napunta siya sa blog ko at doon niya nalaman…

Actually, I’ve been reading case studies about re-posting online articles in other websites but this is the first time that someone really, unabashedly claimed an online article as his own–to the point of getting it published in a regional newspaper.

I’m from the Benguet so I could ask my colleagues and professors about the incident. Looking forward to get an interview with The Ilocos Times. Chill.

so THE ILOCOS TIMES indeed erred in attributing their copy-pasted editorial to Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist JUAN L. MERCADO.

Gosh! And to think how much I admired the “Juan Mercado” sa PDI because kakaiba sya sumulat. I really liked his style. So Atenean, sabi ng kakilala ko nung napag-usapan namin ang mga paborito naming columnists noon. Dunno how Ateneans write. I know De Quiros is one. My kakila, too. Basta ako, hindi Atenista. Guess it really takes one to know one.

Pero in fairness, the Ilocos Times’ boo-boo is so un-Juan Mercado. Baka nagkamali sila sa pag-attribute dyan. Super magkaiba ang writing style dahil kinopya yung sa yo, verbatim. ‘ika nga, imposibleng kanya ang style ng panunulat dahil lahat ng writers, mey parang “trademark” yan sa pagsusulat.

Regular readers of PDI’s opinion columnists will agree with me.

plagiarism is a crime.

Kung walang mention ng source o ‘link back’ indication o kung mayroon ngang source pero iisa lang (ideal is at least three sources to make the details intact), that’s indicative plagiarism. But heck, the one written by this certain Juan M. (wow) was much similar w/ PH’s masterpiece. You’ll be confused kung alin ang original copy eh. Sa tingin ko hindi ka nag-iisa manong Loi.

Anyway, I find it disturbing that people in media who always claim freedom of expression never bother to know or practice the duties that come with that same freedom. Freedom abused is not freedom at all. I actually don’t read Mr. Mercado or the PDI at all (such unbridled journalism), but your post gave me another reminder why I don’t subscribe or visit their site at all. More power to you.

kilala niyo ba itong agcaoili? ilokano daw ito.

from http://riknakem.wordpress.com/

DR. AURELIO SOLVER AGCAOILI, the University of Hawaii professor who publicly called the late President Manuel L. Quezon “stupid” three months ago, has not apologized for what many felt was an arrogant and irresponsible remark.

I have written about this a moon ago (Brilliant Agca, Stupid Quezon), so let me refresh your memory. Last July, Dr. Agcaoili, a well respected educator and multi-awarded writer, was one of the presenters in the first Mother Language Education (MLE) forum in Ilocos. Held at MMSU Laoag Campus, the activity was attended mostly by teachers from all levels. Students, creative writers, journalists, and politicians were also present.

A week after, Mark Limon, a teacher from the Department of Education, contributed to The Ilocos Times a news article headlined, “University of Hawaii prof calls Quezon stupid,” which prompted Agcaoili to write a lengthy Letter to the Editor which attacked, in a scathing manner, Limon’s grammatical flaws and minor factual errors. He even insulted the teacher, saying, “Maasiak kadagiti adalan daytoy a maestro a din sa met nakasursuro.”

Yet Agcaoili, who demanded a public apology from Limon, never clarified whether or not he called Manuel L. Quezon, a former president venerated by many Filipinos as hero, “stupid.”

Did he? If he did, why?
Because I was in that forum, I know firsthand that, yes, Agca did call Quezon ’stupid.’ I am trying to reconstruct what I remember he said, and it goes this way, “The ‘One Nation, One Language’ policy is a stupid nineteenth-century measure imposed by this stupid Quezon.”

In the article I previously wrote, I tried to elucidate the issue and wished that Dr. Agcaoili would eventually clarify what he said and why he said what he said.

We have not heard from Dr. Agcaoili again, and many readers are disappointed, infuriated even, with his apparent lack of remorse.
