Who killed ABS-CBN? Its “news” team did!

It is too bad that employees of embattled media network ABS-CBN are paying for the sins of the “journalists” of the network’s “Current Affairs” Department. After all, the primary reason ABS-CBN rubbed the powers-that-be the wrong way is because of the slanted, sloppy, mediocre “reporting” it passed off to hapless Filipino viewers as “journalism”.

It is interesting, however, to see how the media giant is now calling on its showbiz “talent” and the throngs in their respective “fandoms” to come to its rescue. Fronting the current entertainment (what they call “activism” nowadays) is newly-crowned “hero” of the Kapamilya mob Angel Locsin who now leads a campaign to emotionally blackmail her colleagues into joining the “fight” (this fight being some sort of nebulous effort to magically renew ABS-CBN’s franchise to broadcast very likely outside of due process).

It is too bad Locsin cannot simply scream “Darna” and fly off with fist thrust forward to vanquish her “enemy” (however way she and her fans define it). In Locsin, Kapamilya fans very likely continue to see the same fictional comic book hero they grew up with and, perhaps, ogled in lockstep watching Locsin in the lead role of Darna on TV in 2005. Guess who was laughing all the way to the bank following the success of that franchise? Why, no less than the shareholders of ABS-CBN!

Angel Locsin as the Greatest Filipino Hero.

To be fair, the only hope of ABS-CBN winning the quaint PR “war” they are waging today lies in starlets such as Angel Locsin. This is because their top-gun telejournalist celebs — the likes of Karen Davila and Korina Sanchez, to name a couple — have become liabilities to such a dishonest campaign. Indeed, it is quite telling that the network would now rather have an old Darna actress speak for their cause rather than these “current affairs” stalwarts who one would have thought would be in better positions to speak to the core issues of this matter.

Goes to show ABS-CBN have neither legal nor political leg to stand on. They are mobilising popularity to address what is essentially a foregone administrative matter their execs, led by that other accidental “hero” Carlo Katigbak, failed to manage competently.

  1. “Celebrity Politics” and “Celebrity Activism” are “Bankrupt Politics and Bankrupt Activism”…Journalism is long dead in our country…it was murdered by Cory Aquino and long buried by the YellowTarqds…We had always : fake news; slanted news and biased opinions, in favor of the Aquinos. The Aquinos used these facilities to destroy their political enemies, and promote their heroism and sainthood…

    The Roman Catholic Church clergy, is one of the facilities of the Aquinos, in this massive propaganda network….

    The “end results” of these
    is : the Oligarchs used them as “cover” to scam the country, and the CPP/NPA use them as propaganda facilities, to promote their causes.

    This is the reason, we just are discovering now, the scams and the “tactics”, they are doing to us….

    So, “Darna”, who can fly to destroy her enemies, is the one “leading the charge”, to save the embattled TV network. Unfortunately, “Darna”cannot fly and fight in the real world…she is as human as we are….
    She also owns some stocks, with the “human name ” of “Angelina Colmenares”…sounds leftist; Isn’t it ?

    So, let us all move on…stop the stupid celebrity show. It does us no good !

  2. @Adrian:

    The Lopez owners are “big time scammers” and “disenteng Tax evaders”…,as the YellowTards call them…

  3. Angel Locsin just miss getting molested at the ABS-CBN gym to secure her TV shows. Anyone remember that video uploaded by an intern? ABS-CBN was so good at removing that video online and burying news they don’t approve.

  4. Si Duterte lang ang may motive to close ABS. Documented ito na he will stop at nothing to make sure ABS is closed. With all government institution at his disposal and influence, he did.

    Ang problema, Dutertards ang anchors and starlets of ABS-CBN and hindi nila kayang usigin si Duterte ng direkta kaya puro attack dogs lang ang kaya nilang kalabanin.

    Outrage for ABS ay hilaw dahil sina De Castro Failon Baja Taberna Robin Sharon etc ay puro DDS na hindi kayang magpakita ng paglaban sa poon nila.

    Yes, news team did it! throw in some starlets too!

    1. I’m really amused there are people who keep on blaming Duterte for ABS-CBN’S yet he said that he “he will never interfere and let Congress do their job.”

      If you want to blame someone, then go for Noynoy Aquino and Gabby Lopez.

      1. as in any crime there should be motive and opportunity – duterte has the motive at sya na rin ang nagsabi and opportunity under sa kanya ang lahat ng nagpasara sa abs from congress ntc calida etc

        dutertes selfish vendetta resulted in the misery of abs employees – amused might not be best on how to view this injustice once it happens too to those still not believing that duterte is to blame
        wait for the next crime duterte will unleash

        1. Nah, I’m gonna wait for the next trollfagggotry you’re gonna unleash because this is some ABS-CBN fanboyism/pro-oligarch nonsense you got there.

          Or don’t tell me you don’t know. Get off from your DDS (Duterte Derangement Syndrome) and act like what an adult should do.

    2. And PDuts is responsible for Maria Ressa’s woes re libel charges filed by a private individual and tax evasion, right? Because PDuts is curtailing freedom of speech, right?

  5. Bobbi Tiglao is a discredited journalist na never got respect sa industry dahil sa pagiging hack ni GMA at ngayon ni Duterte. Kung titingnan mo ang columns nya, you only get to see one side of a story and never bothered to do the basic in journalism na kuhanin din ang side ng kabila. Classic Tiglao hehe at kung hanggang ngayon ay si Bobbi Tiglao pa rin ang alam mong paniwalaan , baka dapat lawakan mo ang alam mo.

    Ito namang Ark one pag wala ng argument, puro daldal na walang kwenta. If marunong ka na makipag debate based on evidence /fact then usap tayo, matanda man o bata point of view.

    1. The only journalists that are discredited in these columns are the ones mentioned by Mr Tiglao. To discredit him as a “hack” for GMA is to continue the ‘GMA is bad’ narrative by the previous administration that has been discredited to pieces by the Supreme Court, when it junked all the cases which got her jailed for 5 long years. Mr Tiglao always cites in his columns how he would repeatedly approach the people named in his columns, and how they never got back to him. Ikaw ang walang argument, puro ad hominem. Ikaw ang walang kwenta,

      The Liberal Party and the Church are the ones who will really benefit from the closure of ABS-CBN, since they will get votes (for the former) and government influence (for the latter) when the next election and administration comes. If they make enough noise, enough voters will welcome a new administration that’s LP-anointed and sympathetic to the Catholic Church.

      1. Seconded. At gusto niyang sabihin na paniwalaan natin ang tulad nina Karen Davila and even Maria Ressa para ‘lawakan ang alam ko’. I was like, “That’s bullshit.”

        It’s really hard to trust a ‘journalist’ like Maria Ressa after she exposed herself as a bumbling idiot when she got sacked by Stephen Sackur of BBC’s HardTalk.

        1. wala sa argument ko to believe Maria Ressa or karen Davila, their brand of journalism is not far from Mr Tiglaos, just for the other side

        2. @Patrick:

          Nope, you just called Tiglao ‘not credible’ while you call others the opposite. Nice strawman you got there.

      2. no ad hominem argument here, Mr Tiglao never approached Aquino nor Lopez for that column

        GMA is bad is a fact, she may have escaped jail time not because shes innocent but a certain president Duterte helped her

        1. One is ad hominem when you start to attack people for raising their opinion.

          And ‘GMA bad’ is more like an opinionated narrative than fact, which is pushed by the Yellow Media. You’re showing your Yellowtardism, son.

    2. Bobbi Tiglao is a discredited journalist na never got respect sa industry dahil sa pagiging hack ni GMA at ngayon ni Duterte.

      Ito namang Ark one pag wala ng argument, puro daldal na walang kwenta. If marunong ka na makipag debate based on evidence /fact then usap tayo, matanda man o bata point of view.

      Ang hinahanap mo ay pataasan ng ihi at hindi debate. BTW, what you have is Yellowtard thinking and that’s dangerous. And it seems you’re trying to pull that everything from the Yellow Media is unbiased. Please, you have to do better than that.

      Set your priorities for once, kid

      1. not a yellowtard, not saying yellow media is unbiased, i dont know bakit mo iisipin yan

        assuming things like that you are categorizing people as yellow or dds

        thats not accurate

        1. It’s because the Yellows are the ones who call supporters of Duterte as “DDS”. And it seems you hate the current administration and you want him ousted.

          So yeah, it is accurate.

        1. Nagsabi ang makitid ang utak. Because you offered NOTHING but ZERO ideas and anti-administration rhetoric.

    3. How is he “discredited”? You have to wonder why, despite “slandering” the likes of Ressa et al to pieces, NOT ONE LIBEL case was filed against him. Your opinion sucks.

  6. saan na naman galing ang want to oust duterte hehe wala akong ganung sinabi panay naman assumption mo

    in fact i want him to stay and continue to show the world how bad he is as a president

    1. saan na naman galing ang want to oust duterte hehe wala akong ganung sinabi panay naman assumption mo

      in fact i want him to stay and continue to show the world how bad he is as a president

      As expected from a Yellowtard. I’ll wait for your essay about why Benigno Simeon Aquino Da Turd is the best president the Philippines had when the fact is that it’s just the opposite.

      And your last paragraph is hilarious that it can totally backfire hard. It just to show how bad and moronic Yellowtards are.

    1. It’s only you because you offer nothing but ad hominem attacks and zero solutions. Of course, you’re a Yellowtard so you can’t answer that.

      1. again the yellowtard label – ngayon ko lang nalaman ganyan kayo katakot sa mga yellwtard – sinabi na nga hindi pilit pa rin hehe i cant be a yellowtard because the aquinos and dutertes for me ay parehong political dynasties perpetuating themselves in power- ruling class at ultimate trapo pareho- same agenda

        1. yellowtards and dutertards both are personality based fan clubs with idiots as their idols

          You downright lie on this. You keep on yapping about Duterte being ‘the worst president’ yet you brag about Benigno Simeon Aquino Da Turd being the ‘best President’.

          As expected from a Yellowtard.

        2. No matter how hard you try, you’re still a Yellowtard because of one thing: appeal to the emotions and lashing on tainted surnames and are easily manipulated by the Yellow media.

  7. gma is bad is fact not an opinionated narrative shown by her admission to calling garci to influence elections – her involvement in the fertilizer scam and the zte scandal are just examples of her being the worst president second only to duterte

    1. gma is bad is fact not an opinionated narrative shown by her admission to calling garci to influence elections – her involvement in the fertilizer scam and the zte scandal are just examples of her being the worst president second only to duterte

      More like an opinionated narrative than fact. And the Garci stuff showed that she talk to Garcillano. Nothing else. And the fertilizer and ZTE scams? One is that the Ombudsman dismissed the case back in 2014 and the Sandiganbayan dismissed the charges regarding on the latter back in 2016.

      And it’s really dumb to say she’s the second worst president when she kept the economy afloat during the 2008 world financial crisis. Put anyone in the presidency during that time and the Philippine economy collapses thanks for your stupidity.

      And you totally destroyed yourself with your last paragraph. Thanks for exposing yourself being a Yellowtard because the worst president is none other than Benigno Simeon Aquino Da Turd. You can’t argue with that, son.

      1. nothing else- hehe elections are the most sacred events in a democracy rigging it is not nothing else yan ang gawain ng isang nakakasukang presidente

        1. Yeah, nothing else. Because I wanna know if she is really convicted of electoral fraud.

          Ganyan talaga pag emosyonal – wala sa isip.

      2. economy- 2008 crisis ang savior natin hindi si gma – ofw pa rin kasi hindi naapektuhan ng prob ng mga kano sa mga utang sa bahay nila

        1. That’s some made up shit right there. If not for GMA’s efforts during that time, the our economy will crash. Just plain and simple.

        1. Not exactly. You are easily manipulated by the Yellow media; that’s why you keep on saying that.

  8. not made up look it up – sub prime never affected our economy that badly it did other countries invested in toxic derivatives and gma never did anything than being a mediocre president

    1. And that’s because of GMA’s efforts that you don’t want to acknowledge.

      Just admit that emotions get the better of you.

    1. I wanna ask again: is she really convicted of electoral fraud?

      Admitting she talked to Garci only proves she talked to Garci, what else?

        1. Convicted by a court. Last time I checked, the cases filed against her, with Pnoys prodding, are dropping like flies.

          There’s no ‘court’ of an angry mob. Nice promotion of mob mentality right there.

      1. cover up for what?

        the problem with you is that you think the people are just against duterte and for the yellows

        wala ka bang alam na naka debate na iba?

        im one with you that noynoy is a very bad president

        deal with it

        1. You keep on yapping about Duterte being the ‘worst president’ while you put Noynoy in a pedestal yet you don’t want to admit it.

  9. pedestal? saan mo ba nakukuha ang arguments mo

    Si noynoy ay pareho ni duterte tanga at walang kwentang presidente!

  10. the constitution guarantees that if the people cant get justice legally it can do with peoples justice – basic
