Retired broadcaster Jay Sonza lashed out on Facebook at a former colleague in the news industry for crowd sourcing on Twitter regarding the identity of an old bald guy who was with Vice President Sara Duterte’s family photo during her oathtaking ceremony.
Sonza began by reminding his Facebook followers what he has been saying all along that if you are good journalist, you will exhaust all means to know what you are writing about. In this case, before posting something on social media.
Sonza was reacting to the tweet of journalist/blogger Raissa Robles asking about the identity of the old man in the photo she encircled in green highlighter which she also posted.
Sonza was not only rebuking Robles for crowdsourcing but rather for speaking with contempt at the old man in the photo who turned out to be Vice President Sara Duterte’s uncle.
You may now read Jay Sonza original FB post below.
This is what I have been telling you. Kung matino kang journalist o reporter, you will exhaust all means to learn what you are writing or reporting about. In this particular case, before posting something.
Dahil sa pagiging tamad o iresponsable, hindi na inalam ng babaeng ito kung sino si Bill o William Zimmerman na tiyuhin ni Mayor Inday at kapatid ni Mrs. Elizabeth Zimmerman-Duterte, na ina ng vice president elect.
Palibhasa nga iresponsable at tamad, napagdiskitahan pa pati iyong shoulder/side bag ni Bill, na isa mga idol naming announcer/disc jockey noong hindi pa ipinapanganak si Raissa Rs. Si Bill ay well traveled, dahil matagal na panahong siya na naging FA/purser sa isang major airline.
Sa susunod huwag kang parang tangang nagtatanong kunyari. Obviously, you speak with contempt about the man. By the way, bakit ngayon ka lang ba nakakita ng lalaking may shoulder o side bag? Nangangati ba ang kamay mo sa kakaisip Raissa.
Sa Davao, kapag ang lalaki ay naka-shoulder o side bag, ibig sabihin niyan ay masinop, may sinasabi sa buhay, may magandang naipundar dahil sa punyagi. You belong to the silent elite.
Sa laktod nga pagkasulti – Adunahan o Datu ni siya.
Nagtabisay ang laway sa nimal nga badje. Pineste.
