Outraged Over A Misleading BillBoard On The CCP Lawn?

My first reaction to the “Sunset View Block Condominium” Billboard on CCP’s lawn would have been outrage, if I didn’t know better. If I didn’t take to heart GMA TV New’s Howie Severino’s slogan, “Think Before You Click”, I might have clicked SHARE or TWEET immediately without reading the article, checking the facts, or thinking […]
