Network says ad claim on economy not substantiated

ABS-CBN nixes Erap ad airing


For a television network that claims to be credible and fair, the giant network ABS-CBN again showed its bias as it disproved its claims at fairness, impartiality and credibility, with its refusal to broadcast an advertisement of presidential candidate former President Joseph Estrada, focusing on his his achievements as president during his two year’s stay in Malacañang.

This is not the first time ABS-CBN has refused to air advertisements being placed by Estrada and his camp.
Earlier, the giant TV network had refused to air the infomercial of Estrada that had a video of the late President Cory Aquino apologizing to him for her participation in the Edsa ll coup d’etat, saying she had
made mistake in helping the coup plotters in ousting Estrada.

Despite the fact that this incident was aired by the network itself, and that the video footage came from the ABS-CBN cameras and news programs, ABS-CBN network still refused to air the infomercial. It was clear then that the network refused to air Estrada’s informercial as it was behind the candidacy of Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino.... MORE

Palace: Gloria not part of elite conspiracy vs Erap

By Aytch S. de la Cruz

Malacañang yesterday dismissed the very public apology expressed by then Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) chairman and now vice presidential candidate for Bangon Pilipinas party, Perfecto Yasay, addressed to former President Joseph Estrada before a large crowd of devotees.

Yasay admitted before thousands of religious devotees in the 25th anniversary of the Taber-nacles of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ last Sunday that he regretted the day he had allowed himself to become an instrument of an unlawful government transition though a conspiracy by the elite society to unconstitutionally oust Estrada.

A major player in that elite conspiracy to oust the former president was then Vice President Gloria Arroyo.... MORE

Manny Villlar and Loren Legarda, both senators who are aspiring for the presidency and vice presidency, respectively, insist that, given the many pro-Villar “clues” handed out by El Shaddai leader Bro. Mike Velarde to his Hong Kong flock, it is they are the anointed bets of the Catholic charismatic leader and his flock for the May 10, 2010 polls.

Velarde, for his part, denied that he had endorsed the two, saying that he and his flock would know just which bets they will be supporting come Easter Sunday. But he was probably trying to be cute in his denials.

On the part of Lakas-Kampi presidential candidate, Gilbert Teodoro, he says he is the anointed of Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, leader of the Kingdom of Christ sect, as he has already been prayed over by the Davao pastor, apart from seeking the prayers for the success of Teodoro.... MORE

Stranger than fiction

Ninez Cacho-Olivares

Caloocan top’s city post is being fought by two candidates of note: Luis “Baby” Asistio, former Caloocan congressmen, and the incumbent mayor, Recom Echiverri.

In a strange turn of events, Echiverri filed a disqualification case against Asistio on grounds that he was not a resident of Caloocan, not before the Comelec, but before a court of law — in Caloocan, which is strange enough as it is.

Not surprisingly, the judge junked Asistio’s appeal and naturally upheld Echeverri’s peititon to disqualify his rival.... MORE
