I don't know how 24 Oras gets all its media awards. Their news items are shite! And when they aren't quite shitty, they report them like shite. Sure, they can masquerade unimportant news as gold and degrade important news to crap, I'll give them that. But they shouldn't be claiming that they're doing it for the people. 'Serbisyong totoo', my arse. If they intend to be tabloid-on-telly, they should say so and leave the serious reporting to a group that can truly 'represent'.
Tonight, they made a hype out of a group of plain monitor lizards in Thailand claiming they were giant common lizards the size of crocodiles. In Mike Enriquez's exaggerated Batangueño: "Mga higanteng butiki, kasing laki ng buwaya?!"
Bayawak 'yun; alam ng tao kung ano ang bayawak. At ano naman kung may bayawak sa Thailand e mayroon din naman tayo nun dito? (It's a monitor lizard; people know what a monitor lizard looks like. And so what if they have monitor lizards in Thailand when we have them here just the same?)
In all fairness, though, I think most of these fucktards on telly are rating-maniacs. They don't care what kind of rubbish they feed the people, as long as they get attention and rake in the dosh/dough. They should do the populace a favour and kill themselves before they infect the children.
Now, to some of you, I'm probably just over reacting. To be honest, I'm in a war. ;)
