i received the following text message from former deputy spokes ric saludo, cabinet secretary (as in secretary of the cabinet) july 9, 2005 at 8:12am.
"FOR MEDIA from the Cabinet Secretary, Ric Saludo: Greetings. In your reports, pls balance statements/grps calling for PGMA to resign by citing those opposing it &/or favoring constitutional processes. Among 2nd group are: (chorva, chorva...)"
it was a very loooong text, which also included the text message he sent the 10 cab secs who resigned irrevocably from the cabinet.
i only read the part i quoted here. when i got to the words "pls balance statements", i was already seeing red. the nerve! is he (and malacanang) dictating how we should write our stories?
but i was able to restrain myself. this is what i texted back:
"sir, you dont have to remind gma network of balanced reporting. we always make sure of that."
he texted back:
"thank you. that part wasnt for GMA but others that love the word 'resign'. mabuhay kayo."
