the newsroom was abuzz this afternoon. everyone was glued to the tv sets as we waited for the presscon of the alleged source of the wiretap cd's to begin. but when samuel ong introduced himself as the deputy director of the nbi, i immediately asked our nbi reporter for his background. turns out he was bypassed for wycoco. because he was disgruntled, he allegedly helped sen lacson with the jose pidal expose. when wycoco found out, ong was transferred to an unimportant post in some province. what he sed next, i don't know. i lost all interest in what he had to say. a disgruntled official with an axe to grind and with questionable loyalties doesn't deserve my time and attention.
isa pa, he wasn't the one who conducted the wiretapping. he was handed the tapes - copies of the wiretapped conversation.
before the presscon began, rez cortez was seated beside ong. later on, he turned invisible. sobrang litaw na litaw naman ang kulay. someone must have noticed and ordered rez cortez to leave.
i'm not one to defend the president. anyone who ever caught my reports when i was still covering the palace should know me better. but what alternatives to pgma do we have? noli? whoa! then this country is indeed cursed.
marching to edsa may be our right but that right has been overused and abused. it trivializes the real fight the filipino people put up against the dictator and later, against the corrupt president.
while some of my colleagues are worrying about having their days off this weekend cancelled and losing their chance to gimmick tonight, i am worrying about the future of my 2 daughters.
