Retired broadcaster Jay Sonza slammed ‘mainstream media’ for acting like our neighborhood Marites rather than the watchdog of Philippine democracy by dedicating a contemptuous news article on President Bongbong Marcos expensive wristwatch instead of writing about the observance of protocols and traditions of a presidential inauguration etc..
Sonza was furious ‘mainstream media’ has made a fuss of President Marcos Patek Philippe wristwatch when everybody knows he already owned a luxury watch in his bachelor days. Besides, his family and wife’s family belong to the alta sociedad so owning one is no big deal to them.
Sonza stated that to the rich and successful people, wearing expensive watches like Patek in important occasions is a standard part of men’s wardrobe.
Sonza added that who’s who in the Philippines who attended the June 30 inauguration wore a luxury wrist watch like this.
Sonza ended the FB post claiming that he know a farmer who wears a Patek wristwatch when he attends the Sunday mass.
You may read Jay Sonza’s original FB post below.
WATCHDOG O INGGIT NA MARITES LANG ANG PEG.
Here’s a typical reaction of the “wokes” of Imperial Manila.
Instead of writing about the observance of protocols and traditions of a presidential inauguration; the valedictory address of the incoming president; and the directions spelled in the first nationwide address, this “mainstream media” chose to write with contempt, the wrist watch of the duly elected chief executive of the nation.
Ginagawang napakalaking bagay na nagmamay-ari ng Patek Phillipe si Mr. Marcos, gayong alam naman ng lahat na binata pa lang si Bongbong ay nagsusuot na ito ng dekalidad na relo. Bukod dito, ang pamilya niya at pamilya ng kanyang maybahay ay galing sa buena familia at alta sociedad at maliit na bagay sa kanila ang pagkakaroon ng ganitong piyesa.
Sa aming mga nakakaintindi, nagsikap at nakapag-ipon, ang pagsusuot ng Patek o kahalintulad na relo sa mga mahahalagang pagtitipon ay standard part of wardrobe o must wear for the occasion.
Katunayan, halos lahat ng mga may sinasabi sa lipunan na dumalo sa magkakasunod na pagtitipon noong June 30 ay nakasuot ng ganitong uri ng mga kagamitan.
Mayroon nga akong kilalang magsasaka na nagsusuot nito tuwing may okasyon na puputanhan tulad ng pagsisimba tuwing linggo.
