In light of the senate hearing called by Senator Grace Poe on ABS-CBN’s compliance with its franchise, retired broadcaster Jay Sonza issued a dare to the senator.
In a Facebook post, Sonza remarked that if Senator Poe is really, really serious to know ABS-CBN’s “kabulastugan” – which Tagalog.com defined as a combination of lying and being arrogant. The meaning has somehow shifted to mean closer to a mix of katarantaduhan (outlandish stupidity) and kasamaan (wickedness) – the retired broadcaster wants the following persons invited to the senate hearing, including him.
Kung talagang serious kang malaman ang mga kabulastugan ng abs-cbn Sen. Grace Poe- Llamanzares, imbitahin mo ang mga sumusunod na resource persons:
1. Mel Tiangco
2. Angelique Lazo
3. Ruth Abao
4. Izza Reneva-Cruz
5. Erwin Tulfo
6. Jay Sonza
7. Korina Sanchez-Roxas
8. Gel Santos-Relos
9. Group 103 forcibly terminated cameramen, cablemen, lightmen, vtr men, driver.
10 Group 457 forcibly dismissed employees.
11. Group 209 forcibly retired employees.
12. ten thousand employees without mandatory social amelioration coverage.
Sonza, in a forceful tone, said that is if the Senator wants to be true to herself. Otherwise, Sonza said enough is enough of her gimmicks/antics aka “senate hearing.”
kung magpapakatotoo ka!
kung hindi, tama na iyang lecheng pautot mong senate hearing!
Sonza’s FB post has generated quite an engagement among Pinoy Facebook netizens, getting 9,200+ reactions, 2800+ shares and 800+ comments as of this writing.
Here are some of the comments of netizens below.
This netizen commented that he doubt Poe’s ability to solve the ABS-CBN issue. She was merely playing “cute” to make it appear she’s thinking.
“Butas Lang po para makalusot Ang abs Ang hanap nya, Hindi Yung solution 😂 tapos tititigan Lang tapos na. Wala Naman kakayahang magsolve Yan pa cute Lang para mukang nagiisip din sya.”
Another netizen agreed with the above commenter, accused Poe of seeking media mileage. “Leche, talaga yang lasing Gerang yan.gusto na namang MA fucos ng lente ng camera, pero walang natapos at naibigay na report sa taong Bayan sa dami ng imbistigasyon ginawa.. Kase tinatago ang totoong natuklasan nya.. Tpos ngayon eepal kana naman abay poe_tang Ina ka talaga..”
This is just another gimmick of Poe. If the names mentioned by Jay Sonza joined forces and called for a senate hearing, that’s the time they (senate) will be forced because the public will be waiting to watch it. “Alam natin pautot lang yan hearing na yan yun mga nabangit na pangalan pwede magsamasama at manawagan ng senate hearing palagay ko dyan sila mapipikitan dahil buong bayan na ang maghihintay mapanood.”
