This past few days, I cannot help but feel pity and empathize with the latest wistleblower on the ZTE-NBN Deal scandal. It seems that those highest ranking officials are doing everything to "morally assassinate" him to cover-up what he just exposed or about to expose, based on his first hand knowledge of many of the events that led to the deal being signed.
I pity for him, not on the cross-examinations and questions thrown to him in the Senate and media, but on his future and of his family. After all these hullabaloo, what will become of Rodolfo "Jun" Lozada? Will he be living his life the way he used to? Or he'll be living his life in hell here on earth? Because after all he has been exposing, I doubt if those sinister politicians involved can sleep sound at night without doing something to exterminate obstacles in their path.
I guess, NOW is the time for us FILIPINOS to move and do something to our country. NOW is the time that she needs us. Let us join hands to put an end to the culture of corruption, dishonesty and injustice in our beloved Philippines. You may wonder how can you help? Just ask and examine YOURSELF!

The never-ending saga of throwing each other's dirt of the country's major networks over the controversial TV ratings brouhaha in Bacolod City and some parts of the country, continues to irritate and disappoint the viewing public who deserves to know the truth.
In an industry where integrity, credibility and honesty are the only ticket to success and wide viewership, who would ever admit to have influenced the result of TV ratings? Otherwise, this will mean advertiser's backing out, viewer's loyalty crisis and stained credibility of the network.
The way I look at it, GMA-7 really did an "extra promotional thing" in provinces or even in Metro Manila to secure their dominance in TV ratings. They may have lead in Metro Manila but I don't think they can dominate the rest of the country where ABS-CBN has a solid, loyal audience and well-established TV transmitters (for clearer reception).
I believe that GMA-7 is NOT TELLING the truth. With all those witnessess who are coming out, not just from Bacolod City but from other parts of the country, shouting in one consistent voice of "GMA-7 cheats" TV ratings, I cannot help but feel sad of GMA-7's false defense. GMA-7, in order to save its nearing lost (or just lost) credibility, tries to turn the table on their side, by spreading statements that ABS-CBN also gave cash and grocery items, like what they SUCCESSFULLY did. Unfortunately, GMA-7's counter-attack doesn't work. GMA-7's think-tank should formulate bright, credible and BELIEVABLE ideas to cover-up their wrongful act.
Pathetic GMA-7!!! (Sigh!)
Coincedentally, the network's name might have been a problem. GMA-7 and an infamous Philippine politician shared the same acronym. I am just wondering, the former is accused of CHEATING TV ratings while the latter is also accused of CHEATING the election. Could it be that the name (acronym) has something to do with LYING? Damn, I don't know!
Anyway, I am not an ABS-CBN fan or something nor a GMA-7's detractors. I am just speaking my mind. You too, can speak your mind. Send me your comments, suggestions, etc.
