Seasoned media reporter and among ABS-CBN’s reputable correspondent Ron Gagalac gone viral on social media particularly in Facebook right after he allegedly twisted the statement of People’s Reform Party presidential bet Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago regarding on what she can express with regards to the questionable BPI account of the leading PDP-Laban’s presidential candidate, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
Based on Facebook user Freddie Ampac who uncovered just how one-sided the ABS-CBN news reporter, Ron Gagalac twists the statement of Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago and place a bad impression upon Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in a news report in TV Patrol. The said netizen mentioned that it’s too apparent that Ron Gagalac tries to squeeze Davao City Mayor in a undesirable position due to the countrywide circulation of media giant ABS-CBN.
Freddie Ampac shown how Gagalac went with his phrase in TV Patrol (Verbatim): At iyan na nga ang pangamba ni Santiago. Baka manalo ang hindi gusto ng tao. Ngayon pa lang kasi ayon kay Santiago marami ng sinungaling sa mga tumatakbo. Itinatago pa umano ang yaman pero daang milyon na ang gastos sa halalan. Tulad ni Mayor Duterte na hindi mailarawan ni Santiago kung anong klase ang pamumuno.
Mr. Ron Gagalac, shame on you! You call this news reporting? It’s very obvious that you are trying to put Mayor Duterte in a bad light.
THIS IS HOW RON GAGALAC WENT WITH HIS SPIEL IN TV PATROL (VERBATIM): “At iyan na nga ang pangamba ni Santiago. Baka manalo ang hindi gusto ng tao. Ngayon pa lang kasi ayon kay Santiago marami ng sinungaling sa mga tumatakbo. Itinatago pa umano ang yaman pero daang milyon na ang gastos sa halalan. Tulad ni Mayor Duterte na hindi mailarawan ni Santiago kung anong klase ang pamumuno.”
HERE COMES THE ACTUAL INTERVIEW FOOTAGE (VERBATIM):
RON GAGALAC: If there will be a Duterte presidency, how would you describe it?
SEN. MIRIAM: I would be able to cooperate with Mayor Duterte because we are old friends. Ah that will depend on whether he will live up to the expectations of the commercial service.
Which part of Sen. Miriam’s statements explicitly or implicitly say that she can’t describe his presidency?? #biasABSCBN – Freddie Ampac (from Facebook post)
