It's now almost 2 months since we first heard of Gloriagate, but the Mainstream Media like ABS-CBN and GMA7 still won't play the tapes on TV, or have them authenticated and analyzed by experts -- even after Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's "admission" and "apology". These media giants don't deem it important enough to let their viewers listen to the tape themselves.
And that's why most Filipinos are still half-informed re the seriousness and scope of the Arroyo administration's crimes.
But GMA7 and ABS-CBN had no problems playing Chavit Singson's X-tape on TV (with subtitles, IIRC) even though Chavit himself admitted that the tape is not verified.
The same rin with the Philippine Daily Inquirer and Phil. Star. Why don't you authenticate the tapes yourselves, make them downloadable for your readers, and provide a thorough analysis of it's contents?
(If PDI can send a reporter to the US to dig up dirt on "Lacson's billions," I'm pretty sure they can send the Ong tapes and even Malacanang's "original" and "spliced" version for authentication.)
Come on ABS-CBN, GMA7, PDI and PHILSTAR, What are you afraid of? Do your job. Do this as a public service to the Filipino people.
Play those tapes on tv now and make them available for downloading.
But in the meantime, while the MSM is still d1cking around, we need to keep telling the truth re this administration and their allies.
