GMA : "GANDA"'s MISPLACED ARROGANCE
Both Sec. Bertie Lim and Ms. Yoly Ong were great contributors
to the victory of President Benigno C. Aquino III
during the last elections.
For that, I'll be forever grateful.
They were instrumental in ensuring that
Gloria and her children were marginalized.
But the insensitivity displayed by these two recently,
to notice a plagiarized (and fugly) logo,
reeks of President Arroyo again...
sure, we have our fall guy,
but what we don't have is an explanation
as to who the f*ck is going to refund our country's coffers
for the almost Four (or five?) Million Pesos spent for 'Ganda.
Yoly Ong is an institution in Philippine Advertising.
Her talents and campaign victories are legendary.
But apparently, sadly, so is her arrogance:
"I would rather be stoned, flayed, crucified
and burned at the stake,
than be cowed into condoning travesty."
Excuse me. Your agency's campaign,
preview or not, was the real travesty.
And please, this level of HUBRIS?
I really thought we'd seen the last of it after we voted out
the officers of what you so creatively call GMA's
"Gruesome Malicious Army":
"Never has such coordinated online outrage
been more violently expressed, eclipsing the anger
over the Maguindanao massacre, Morong 43,
or the unresolved murders of journalists combined!"
She ends with a quote from "President Roosevelt".
There were two: Theodore and Franklin Delano.
A better writer would have been precise.
