Voice of Voiceless Filipinos


welcome

By: Elena Grace Flores
The interview of Anderson Cooper in the Late Show with David Letterman might be taken as criticisms to the Philippine government – but in reality, this is a big breakthrough for those Filipinos who do not have voices – and who are suffering in silence. Watch this:

Yes, it’s better to just help in your own little way – but when you talk about changing the public system to the better, you need to express your sentiments without fear. This is actually what I’m doing through my blogs – but ended up being discouraged by my own relatives. Thanks to this video. It has given me strength to do my part in being the “voice” of the less fortunate!

The Real Score in the Tacloban Relief Efforts


welcome

By: Elena Grace Flores
If Anderson Cooper, a reliable CNN journalist can feel the sufferings of the Filipinos affected by the typhoon Yolanda fury in Tacloban – why can’t the President of the Philippines and some of his cabinet members and cronies? Why is he more concerned with  how other media practitioners broadcast their stories instead of concentrating on how to clear the streets and dead bodies to make the relief efforts more manageable? Is this the performance of a very popular President? Watch this:

Anderson Cooper is very respectful with the President’s media plea – but most people knew that this should not be the priority. This is another blow for the President showing how incompetent he is in protecting his people. Why can’t he ask for help if he is short of strategies? If the Philippines do not have enough resources, can’t we ask instead of just talking and waiting for aids? Yes, we will survive not just the aftermath of the disaster – but also the unfair government!

Accidental Disclosure of Media Propaganda


welcome

By: Elena Grace Flores
Disasters happen for a reason. Great people became instruments to unveil the real problems. For sure Anderson Cooper did not know that the Philippine Media propaganda during the time of the late President Ferdinand Marcos was the reason of his downfall and the Philippines went down with him. It was initiated by the father of the present President. Now, they applied the same formula since it was very successful to get the power that they aimed for. This time, it looks like majority of the people if not all learned from past mistakes. Read this funny but true article:

Korina gets 360-degree bitch-slapping

By: spinadmin

He then took on BS Aquino, who, in case Cooper didn’t know, is an ex-boyfriend of Korina. But that was well in the past, waaaaay before she fell in love with Mar Roxas, the camera-shy, all-business public servant who had quite a struggle with CNN reporter Andrew Stevens in Tacloban. We’ll surely remember how he also directed traffic in the city three years from now.  http://spinbusters.wordpress.com/2013/11/15/korina-gets-360-degree-bitch-slapping/ 



It just happened that I was once a self-made international journalist  – and since I admired the late Ninoy Aquino’s public speaking ability, I traced his achievements and came across with his many questionable deeds. Perhaps, he was also instrumental in the change of government that the people aimed for at that time – but it does not mean that he was right! Just think for yourself. How can the government announced that we have better economy, lots of jobs and not much corruption anymore when despite working long hours, we still cannot afford our daily sustenance? How about the increasing number of beggars in the streets? Homeless children and  old people alike? Answers please?
