Horn’s Camp: Not ‘Robbery’ Win but No to Manila Boxing Rematch


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Only the camp of the new WBO Welterweight title holder, Jeff Horn and some Australians, of course, are convinced that it was not a “robbery” win for him as claimed by many boxing personalities. However, they already said no to a Manila rematch but the new champ is ready to defend his title anywhere but not in the Philippines.

[VIDEO]: Jeff Horn wins unanimously against Manny Pacquiao…HOW THE HELL??? Oh, and Stephen A. Smith does not agree with this at all.

Twitter Sentiments

Sports journalists, basketball stars players, fellow professional boxers and popular actors aired their sentiments via Twitter after the shocking decision that Horn won the fight. They are unanimous in declaring that Pacquiao got robbed in his opponent’s country, Australia.

Miracle Decision

Horn snatched the WBO welterweight title from Manny Pacquiao at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. Horn won with scores of 117-111 and 115-113. Pacquiao said that there are many miracles that happened. Like the referees’ biased actions and the decision itself. However, he does not plan to make an appeal so as not to ruin the name of boxing. He is leaving that to the people.

Double Boxing Robbery

Sports writer Robert Flores of ESPN said the scores for the Pacquiao-Horn fight were “terrible.” “Manny is robbed twice,” he said. He refers to the earlier fight with Timothy Bradley as the first robbery. “Manny Pacquaio got robbed… Ridiculous,” the former American football tight end George Wrighster III also said.

Pacquiao is Clear Winner

Filipino fighter Brian Viloria admitted that the match was tight but disagreed with the unfavorable decision against Pacquiao. “Close fight, but Pacquiao won that fight,” Viloria said. “I love the sport. But sometimes it kicks you in the teeth when you least expect it,” he added. NBA player Karl-Anthony Towns of Minnesota Timberwolves and retired NBA star of Los Angeles Lakers player, Kobe Bryant, plus actor Samuel Jackson were all disappointed over the fight like many Filipinos.

Mocha Uson Stands by her Anti-Robredo Pronouncements Despite Misfortunes in Broadcasting

Mocha Uson

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Mocha Uson, the President’ avid supporter, and MTRCB chair’s fighting spirit is admirable but her hate speeches against Leni Robredo did not sit well with broadcasting platforms both online and offline. Just in a month, she retreats from the Philippine Army’s Senior Leaders’ Conference or SLC, where she was supposed to be one of three resource speakers to discuss the role of social media in national security. It is followed by Twitter’s temporary block of her account and her suspension from her radio program on DZRH.

Twitter Suspension

Mocha’s account was suspended on Twitter – at least temporarily. It was restored within the day. According to Twitter’s published rules, the common reasons for suspending an account include spam, risked account security, or abusive tweets or behavior from the user. Uson seems to be guilty on the third one calling Leni Robredo names and swearing at her.

DZRH Program

Uson’s radio program on DZRH is also suspended after Jozy Acosta-Nisperos of the group called “The Silent Majority” complained against her bad mouthing and below the belt attacks against the Vice President over her recorded message in a video sent to air at a side event of the United Nations about the administration’s alleged extrajudicial killings over the drug war. She calls Robredo a liar for her wrong explanation of the “swap heads” scheme and wrong data.

Declined Army Invitation

Earlier, Margaux Uson in real life sent a letter saying that she would no longer attend the forum after courting bad publicity when she made the Army’s invitation known online, Army spokesperson Col. Benjamin Hao said. “The Philippine Army fully respects her decision.


Limitations on Freedom of Speech

The sexy Mocha Uson definitely has the right to air her opinions and sentiments but in most broadcasting platforms, there are rules that must be followed. Cursing, hate speeches, and unruly behavior cannot be tolerated because it is harmful to the media body as well. It has something to do with image. One can be truthful without the insults toward opponents. Mocha Uson goes back on air but after she passes a broadcasting exam.

Racism: Donald Trump’s supporters bullied Leslie Jones of Ghostbusters on Twitter

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Supporters are not often influenced by their presidential bet but somehow, there’s a common trait among those in the same faction that is ignited by the reactions or comments of their bet. Leslie Jones of Leslie Jones of Ghostbusters got a taste of it when she was bullied on Twitter by Donald Trump’s supporters who showed their being racists. Hear this out from CNN:

CNN wrote: “I would say you’re looking at obese white men between 50 and 60 who are active Klan members, or members of the Aryan Nation, and there are millions of them,” the actor told ET Canada. “I’m afraid to say that contingency will be voting for the Republican ticket, pretty much that’s what the statistics are indicating, that there’s a lot of white racist hatred out there that’s going to channel into a support for the Republican ticket, maybe in the false belief that these people share their views.” Jones is one of the stars of the all-female cast reboot of “Ghostbusters.” Late Monday, she wrote she was saying goodbye to Twitter after being bullied by racist tweets. As a result, Twitter removed conservative writer Milo Yiannopoulos who helped kick off some of the hate directed at the actress.
Aykroyd both wrote and starred in the original “Ghostbusters.” Like Jones, he rose to fame as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live.” Aykryod hailed the actress for her talent. “Well first of all she’s a great writer, great comedian and comes from a real urban background where she had a lot of hardship, and she’s channeling that into a great achievement and a great career,” Aykroyd said.

It added: He had harsher words for those who trolled Jones. “These people, they’re insignificant gnats, they’re losers, they have no lives of their own. They can probably barely pay for the wifi they’re using,” Aykroyd said. The actor was clear in saying that he’s not totally blaming either Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, or his running mate Mike Pence, for what happened to Jones. “I don’t think that Trump and Pence are as racist as the people who attacked Leslie Jones, I really don’t,” Aykroyd said. “Trump may be saying some things to go that way to get some votes but — well I don’t know.” Director Judd Apatow said during an interview in June that he also believed there was a common demographic between those who took issue with the new “Ghostbusters” and Trump supporters.

Social Media Stopped Media Propaganda Against Binay

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It happened many times that when a positive event about Vice President Jejomar Binay took place, various media would put it in the bad light – misleading the people. According to V.P. Binay, these are part of the demolition against his presidential bid in 2016. However, just recently ABS-CBN was forced to apologize to the University of the Philippines Los Banos – because they missed in broadcasting the news saying that the students were booing the Vice President in a forum which was very wrong.

Twitters and Facebook posts of the U.P. students about what really happened in the forum with Binay cannot be ignored by the General Public. In the end, ABS CBN’s reputation as a source of news diminished. Despite not apologizing to Binay, the people already knew that ABS CBN cannot be fair to the V.P. because of it’s own political agenda. Other media also followed suit but not as bad as ABS.

This only proves to show that in the Philippines, it’s not all truth that you hear from the news. Many will ride on to the popularity of the topic just for the rating.
