TIANGCO, CLAVIO, INQUIRER PHOTO ATBP KWENTO

TODAY, WE’LL ANSWER some more questions sent by this blog’s readers, followers, and haters.

Dear Professional Heckler,
Malamang nakatutok ka noong Lunes sa mga kaganapan sa Senado. Ano ‘tol, maayos ba ang testimonya ko?
I’m sure,
Toby Tiangco

Dear Toby Tiangco,
Mas maayos ang buhok mo.
Heckler
P.S. I’m sure.

Dear Professional Heckler,
Si Toby Tiangco ulit ito. Ginawa ko ang lahat alang-alang sa PDAF prinsipyo. Hindi ako pumirma dahil duda ako kung may probable cause ang reklamo. ‘Tapos ngayon sasabihin nila, sourgraping lang ako dahil sa delayed release ng pork barrel ko. Anong klaseng tao ba sila?

Dear Toby Tiangco,
Congressmen.
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Please lang. ‘Wag kang papadala sa paninira ng taga-Navotas na ‘yan! Winawasak niya ang integridad ng Camara de Representante! Sinisira niya ang imahe ng mga kapwa niya kinatawan. Nag-traydor siya. Tama ba naman ang ginawa niya? Lumalabas tuloy… parang gahaman kami sa pera.
The nerve,
Majority Leader Boyet Gonzales

Dear Majority Leader Boyet Gonzales,
Alisin mo ang parang. #AlamNa
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Sabi po ni Atty. Edwin Lacierda, hindi na siya magsasalita tungkol sa impeachment trial ni Chief Justice Renato Corona. Ito po ba ang tinatawag na paggalang sa co-equal branch of government?
Sana,
Magda of Malabon

Dear Magda of Malabon,
Hindi! Iyan ang tinatawag na himala.
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Bakit parang tahimik ngayon sa impeachment trial si Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago? Takot na ba siya?
Hmmm,
Vitaliano

Dear Vitaliano,
Kapag maingay ang senadora, nagrereklamo kayo. Ngayong ‘di nagsasalita, hinahanap naman n’yo. Ang laki ng problema mo.
Heckler

Mas malaki ang problema mo!
Vitaliano

Aba at sumasagot ka pa!
Heckler

Naririndi na kasi ako sa mga sagot mo.
Vitaliano

Eh ‘di ‘wag kang magbasa! Sino bang nagsabi na…

Gano’n na nga po ang gagawin ko.
Vitaliano

Granted! Gago ka ah.
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Feeling ko po grabe na ang kriminalidad sa bansa. Parang wala nang takot ang masasamang-loob. Ano po bang nangyayari sa Pilipinas?
Afraid,
TG Guillermo

Dear TG,
Sabi ng Malacañang, bumaba raw ang bilang ng krimen. ‘Wag kang manira. Walang problema ang bansa!
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Narinig ko po ang balita tungkol sa mga Azkals at kay dating presidential daughter Cristy Ramos. Sa loob daw ng tent naganap ang diumano’y sexual harassment. Gaano po ba katagal sa loob ng tent si Ms Cristy?
Umaasa,
Azkal Fanatic

Dear Azkal Fanatic,
I’m not sure. I think it was just a brief encounter.
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Sabi po ni Arnold Clavio, “nagpapanggap lang na kayumanggi” ang ilang members ng Azkals. Anong say n’yo?
Anton Del Rosario Forever,
Bubbles

Dear Bubbles,
Maling-mali si Arnold Clavio. Walang pagpapanggap. Hindi talaga sila kayumanggi.
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Nabasa ko sa column ni Ricky Lo ang mga himutok ni Ms Helen Gamboa laban sa kanyang favorite niece na si Sharon Cuneta. Ano ba ang pinag-ugatan ng away nila?
Nakikitsismis,
Anna of QC
P.S.
Nagmamadali ako. Pwede bang igsian mo lang ang sagot? Ano o sino ba ang dahilan ng away ng mag-tiya?

Dear Anna of QC,
‘Noted.’
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Nakakagulat naman ang “resignation” ng pinuno ng PAGASA na si Usec. Graciano Yumul. Sabi po sa balita “for personal reasons.” Ilang beses ko na pong narinig ‘yan. Ano po bang meaning ng “for personal reasons?”
Shocked,
Ondoy

Dear Ondoy,
Kapag nasa gobyerno ka at biglang nagbitiw “for personal reasons,” isa lang ang ibig sabihin n’yan. Click here.
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Tama na! Sobra na! Tigilan na ang negative portrayal sa mga kongresista sa telebisyon at pelikula! It’s unfair, unjust, and undeserved!
Enough,
Cong. Aurelio Gonzales

Dear Congressman Gonzales,
Wala ka namang tanong eh. Anong sasagutin ko? Engot!
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
May namamagitan po ba kina Pangulong Aquino at Grace Lee?
Just asking,
Tinay

Dear Tinay,
Oo. Si Kris.
Heckler

Dear Professional Heckler,
Gaano po kahaba ang “TeeeeeeeeeeeVeeeey Patrol” ni Kabayan?
Seryoso,
Jessica

Dear Jessica,
Mas mahaba nang konti kumpara sa Steeeeve Dailisan.
Heckler
P.S. Pati ba naman ‘yon ‘tinanong? At sinagot ko naman. Wasak!

Pic of the Weak
LEST I BE accused of hypocrisy, I will confess to enjoying being mean to politicians and high profile figures. And that’s intentional. Love it or hate it.

That being said, let me reiterate what I tweeted Wednesday morning. The front page photo of the Philippine Daily Inquirer (3/14/2012) was mean and insensitive. That septuagenarian’s a stroke survivor. The “No. 1 newspaper” knew that for a fact. So what’s the point of publishing these unflattering photos of Defense witness Demetrio Vicente?

Inquirer.Net’s initial reply via Twitter: “Spoke with editors. They said intention wasn’t to make fun. Those were (the) only photos available.”

Really? That was your excuse? No other photos available? Lame. Just lame.
And what was your intention then? Why a photo montage? A single photo would have sufficed. Come on.

Three or four hours later, as netizens continue to express outrage over the controversial photos, Inquirer.Net’s JV Rufino issued this statement:

“It has come to our attention that our photo of witness Demetrio Vicente on our front page today has offended some of our readers. For this, we sincerely apologize. It was not our intention to disparage Mr. Vicente in any way.”

You Have Spoken
Should Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago apologize to prosecution panel members for calling them “gago?”
Dapat lang. Sumobra naman s’ya! 33%
NO! Understandable ang outburst niya. 61%
Hindi ako interesado sa impeachment trial. 6%

Enjoy the rest of the week!

  1. The montage photos were the only shots taken from Demetrio Vicente?
    WTF to that.

    Then again,

    I suggest that the PDI should use digital cameras instead of film next time (sarcasm).

    Seriously, such an affront to the minds of people who have eyes that see in technicolor, not just dilaw!

    This paper is going down to the dogs.

  2. interesting that the top pork barrel senator – revilla – also gets 1.5 million peso a year for his legal expertise on the senate electoral tribunal!
    how many other committees is he on?, and what a scam the committee payment system is.(tax free) senate and congress
    inquirer – expose this abuse if you want to be considered journalists

  3. Makes me wonder if having lack of sleep made Arnold Clavio say all those things. It’s like he had these repressed thoughts all along and he just exploded. Not that I’m defending the guy, but what he said was really wrong. It’s just that for a professional, he should have known better.

    Same goes for the Inquirer. Might as well change that color from blue to yellow.
