TV Patrol and Failon Ngayon
In this evening’s ABS-CBN TV Patrol, they featured a segment from Failon’s Special Report to be shown tomorrow at 4:45 pm at his program: Failon Ngayon. As anticipated, there was an obvious anti-gun bias, but the subtle attempt to raise hysteria is full of inaccurate, if not illogical information. They even dwelled twice on their interview with Pacheco.
The program featured their regular TV-Text survey among viewers if they are Progun or Anti-Gun. The pros won by a narrow margin; with 53% of the votes while the antis got 47%. The disappointments of the TV hosts were obvious, insinuating that the gun dealers, gun owners and even the unlicensed gun holders conducted a texting brigade.
The more it is imperative for us to watch the show tomorrow. Expect some sort of a Saturday Afternoon Massacre where facts or even pro-gun statements to be twisted. Do take notes; express your views, rejoinders, and blogs at the social networking sites. These are not controlled by the media moguls; therefore you can make your sentiments heard.
If we do not help ourselves, nobody will.
