Ito yung sinabi ni MLQ3 back in Aug. 29:
However, if the potential for the re-escalation of the issue is fulfilled by the resumption of the column -which would also firmly lay the passions raised firmly at the feet of the paper and no longer the magazine- things would get possibly worse. After all, all the to-do about an apology and a resignation, would be proven either insincere, or merely a gambit: those arguing for moderation or a more nuanced approach would have been proven naive.
UPDATE: Ang Kape ni Lattex says no to boycott and calls people to "move on" from the issue.
He adds this:
Tess Termulo laments, over Twitter, that more people have given this controversy attention than Cris Mendez’s brutal murder. I agree with her (and I’m guilty of it too). The loss of an innocent life is infinitely more important than the words of a bigoted diva.
I have to disagree here. The Mainstream media gave the Cris Mendez story more attention (kahit na mas bago ito) -- which leads to more people being aware of this story -- than the Malu/MST controversy.
There's no contest really.
Besides, most people don't have much to add because all the facts on the case are not yet available for us to make a determination on who's responsible for this heinous act. Kaya nga may investigation pa isinasagawa eh. Let the authorities do their job. And not jump to conclusions re who's guilty. Or else, ganito ang mangyayari.
UPDATE: Forget Malu, let's pay more attention to Cris Mendez!
UPDATE: (oops! bakit nawala?)
