In a Facebook post shared more than 3,000 times as of Thursday morning, John Paul Sarsuelo Seniel of GMA News Southern Mindanao published a lengthy rant directed against the “Mutya ng Masa” Doris Bigornia of ABS-CBN News for acting like a star during a forgetful encounter with the veteran reporter.

In the post, John Paul Sarsuelo Seniel of GMA News Southern Mindanao recalled how the “Mutya ng Masa” reporter scolded DMNG Engineer Al Lim Ramz of GMA News when he politely requested Doris Bigornia excuse herself from GMA News camera since she became an eye sore to their live report.

Instead of reciprocating the polite gesture, Doris Bigornia scolded DMNG Engineer Al Lim Ramz and even told him “sapakin kita”.

Miss Doris Bigornia, please act with decency when you are with your fellow members of the media.

Maybe you did not know that we had a live report for our GMA 24 Oras Southern Mindanao Newscast, i can forgive you on that, but you acted like you did not see anyone interviewing Mr. Bong Go.

Our DMNG Engineer Al Lim Ramz politely told you to excuse yourself from our camera since you became an eye sore to my live report.
Mr. Bong Go and I were on cam, but you immediately scolded him and even told him
“sapakin kita”.

I don’t care who you are, yes you are Doris Bigornia of ABS CBN, nauna kayo sa amin sa media, hindi pa ako nakarating sa trabaho na ito, napapanood na kita sa TV.

Pero nakakabahala ang inasta niyo. Regional Media kami, oo, pero kahit ihilera ka sa amin dito sa region, namumukod tangi kami sa rehiyon namin dahil rehiyon namin ito. Kahit sa rehiyon namin, hindi kami pa star, we work with humility and authority.

You have shown disrespect sa mas nakababata sa inyo. Huwag po kayong pa Star dahil kahit kilala po kayo ng karamihan, hindi niyo po nasisiguro kung gusto ka ba nila.

I opened this up kasi nababastosan kami sa inaasta mo. Pilipino naman po tayo. Yes our companies compete against each other, but we are still Filipinos and we should respect each other sa kung anumang trabaho meron tayo.

I have heard a lot of negative things about you, and now i fully witnessed a glimpse of your character.
But I thank you for the opportunity of testing our character in the midst of a live report, i was not distracted. We stood with good character and we delivered well.

Mindanaoans like my team (MELCHOR, JP, ALLAN) lighted a candle of good reportage and everybody follows.

What are your thoughts on this?
