BATAAN, Philippines — Nakatawag pansin kay dating DSWD Secretary at ngayon ay Philippine Red Cross Governor Corazon-Alma de Leon ang “Tulong Muna, Bago Balita” advocacy ni Mr. Public Service Kuya Daniel Razon ng UNTV.

"Naniniwala ako na ang ginagawa ng Dating Daan ay di lang para sa Dating Daan, para sa matiyak natin na magiging matuwid din ang daan, yun ang tawag ni Pangulong PNoy." — Former DSWD Secretary and current Philippine Red Cross Governor Corazon-Alma de Leon.

“Kundi gaya ng sabi niyo,’Tulong Muna, Bago Balita’, naniniwala ako na malaki ang nagagawa ng UNTV para sa mga mamamayan nating Pilipino,” pahayag ni PRC Governor Corazon-Alma de Leon.

At dahil sa parehong layunin nito at ng PRC na makatulong sa kapwa-tao, ang istasyon ng UNTV ang pinili ng Philippine Red Cross na maging media partner upang isa-publiko ang mga proyekto at adhikain na isinusulong nito.

International Thanksgiving celebration at the Members Church of God International

There are overwhelming reasons for the Members Church of God International (MCGI) to celebrate its Quarterly International Thanksgiving set on September 30 to October 2 this year. Also called the “Feast of God,” the event is MCGI’s most festive gathering held for three days every quarter.

Bro. Daniel Razon, vice presiding minister to MCGI, discussed a topic before the tens of thousands of congregants who attended the three-day International Thanksgiving.

Bloggers are united in condemning the re-airing by GMA Network of a Case Unclosed episode that features the controversial interview by Arnold Clavio of the self-confessed serial rapist who then filed an invented case of rape against Bro Eli Soriano.

The documentary made by Case Unclosed program of GMA 7 was first aired in 2009. Surprisingly in 2011, it was re-aired on August 3, on GMA News TV.

One of these bloggers,’s Robert Bolisay, pinpointed the holes in the accuracy in airing the controversial episode highlighting the invented case of rape against Bro Eli Soriano. He suggested that GMA Network could have looked closely at the whys of the re-filing and why the same was suspicious.

Standupper explained some few reasons why the Ang Dating Daan is boycotting GMA News and its parent company GMA Network.

Like Bolisay, other bloggers are convinced that when the Case Unclosed aired the controversial interview of Veridiano speaking all negatives against the ADD leader, there was no attempt made by host Arnold Clavio to conduct a background check about Veridiano. A simple check on Youtube will reveal search results that Veridiano made a video confessing that he raped nine (9) of his subordinates when he was then a member of the Ang Dating Daan group. Veridiano was expelled for various offenses, including malversation of Church funds and for raping underage boys.

Upon defecting to the Iglesia ni Cristo, Veridiano appeared one day and filed an invented charge of rape against Bro Eli.  But the said case was already dismissed by the Pampanga court, citing the lack of evidence to indict the international evangelist. However, through the influence of the Iglesia ni Cristo to the then president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the case was re-filed through the then Secretary of Justice Raul Gonzales.

To recall, the Ang Dating Daan group in 2009 led a signature campaign to boycott the television network for its haphazard reporting of the said case.  This time around, Ang Dating Daan looks like its sustained boycott will be upheld until GMA Network and its company, GMA News TV issues an apology to its victim, Bro Eli Soriano.

The blog also scored GMA for acting as host to try by publicity the victim, Bro Eli Soriano, saying:

Being a giant network, it is not fitting to think that GMA-7 is in the dark about certain rules of court that makes the episode unfair and biased to be aired and re-aired.

The “why?” question should have been directed to GMA-7 instead.  Why did you broadcast the episode?  Are you not aware of the rule of court on sub judice?

The TV Network tried to sound fair when they said that they tried to get the side of the respondent.  They did not get anything, however, from the respondent.

Here is another “why?” question for GMA-7.  Why would they still insist on an interview with the respondent?  Didn’t they know they cannot discuss the case on the basis of sub judice?

In the Case Unclosed format, it is inevitable not to talk about the merits of the case once Bro. Eli grants an interview.

Of course, the respondent would mention some details of the case to defend himself.  If not, what did you expect to talk about in the interview then?

From the point of view of Standupper, the Ang Dating Daan members, who are citizens of a democratic nation like the Philippines, could have used the streets to peacefully protest against GMA 7 “in accordance with Batas Pambansa Bilang 880,” about the free exercise by citizens to assemble and petition the government and for other purposes.  Ang Dating Daan, however, took the social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, instead. A boycott page was now garnering 12,000 likes as this 11 PM today (09/18) from 6,000 likes as of Friday (09/16).

The Ang Dating Daan group’s sustained boycott against GMA Network, GMA News TV, and all its assets in print, radio, television, cable, and online, is entering its 7th week.  The boycott began last August 7 after the giant network re-aired on August 3 the controversial interview with a serial rapist who filed an invented case of rape against the ADD leader.

Boycott GMA News TV

Congregants and sympathizers of the Ang Dating Daan joined hands in protesting the network’s irresponsible reporting by logging at Facebook and Twitter, wearing picbadges bearing their cry for justice. A Facebook fan page, 2011 Boycott GMA News, is nearing 10,000 likes. The fan page was put up to send a strong signal to GMA Network that irresponsible media reporting will not be condone.

On sixth week, the boycott reached a milestone when the boycott GMA Network picbadge was listed among the top picbadges in the country, gaining up to 5,000 supporters.

Since August 7, members have already deleted Channels 7 and 11 in their television program.

Based on the comments posted by those who supported the campaign, the massive boycott slapped by the Ang Dating Daan group against GMA Network and GMA News TV will continue until the giant network renders a public apology to its victim, Bro. Eli Soriano.

GMA Network, however, continues to play deaf ears. Worried, the station paid full page advertisements crying that its GMA News TV was topping the surveys. But bloggers and observers are pointing out that the survey firm used by GMA has its credibility questioned in court.
