On allegation Boy Abunda is biased against the Vice President from the supporters of Leni Robredo, singer/composer and PAGCOR board member Jimmy Bondoc can’t help but speak up to defend the talk show host from critics.
Basically, the singer/composer just asked one simple question which is answerable by YES or NO.
If the answer is NO and he was just accused of being biased by Leni her supporters, Bondoc said it only means they acknowledged Leni did terribly in the said interview. They just want to blame Boy Abunda for Leni Robredo’s poor performance in the said show.
If the answer is YES and indeed Boy Abunda is biased and yet Leni still accepted the invitation of Boy Abunda, that means Leni is a bad political strategist.
Bondoc can only ask why did Leni accept the Boy Abunda invitation when she knew he is biased against her? Bondoc clarified he is neither pro or anti BBM but he is still thinking. He lauded BBM because knew how to avoid landmines.
Bondoc wondered why Leni and his staff didn’t know this? Again, the people surrounding Robredo failed to protect her. This is dangerous, Bondoc said.
Bondoc confided that he is still in the process of thinking who to vote for President but dropped some hints like he is not voting for someone “gentle” like his friends prefer because he is still like the Duterte’s style of leadership – noisy and adversarial.
Bondoc hoped his friends will understand that politics has become noisy because people have now access to internet.
He said he is more afraid if politics is very peaceful because that could only the government is not doing anything against the Oligarchs and the Leftists.
Bondoc argued that in history, it is the Left and the Oligarchs who created organized noise, especially when their interest are under threat.
One last important point made by Bondoc is blaming Boy Abunda because Leni messed up the interview is the height of denial and arrogance.

BIASED BA SI BOY ABUNDA?
Isipin natin. Fairly, objectively.
Tingnan natin sa DALAWANG anggulo.
Una – HINDI, as in hindi siya biased; or
Pangalawa – OO, biased siya.
(1) Kung HINDI sya biased pero inaakusahan lang syang biased ng mga supporters ni Mam Leni – ibig sabihin, talagang inaamin ng “pinklawans” na pumalpak talaga ang mga sagot ni mam leni.
Isinisisi lang nila kay sir Boy, pero ina-acknowledge nila na hindi maganda ang kinalabasan ng interview.
In short, “kasalanan” ni sir Boy.
(2) Kung OO, na totoong biased naman si sir Boy – ibig sabihin, hindi po talaga mahusay si Mam Leni sa politika.
Bakit po siya pumayag mag-guest sa isang host na alam niyang “biased” against her? As I said, hindi po ako pro or anti BBM, nag-iisip pa ako. Pero at least, BBM knew how to avoid the landmines.
Bakit si Mam Leni or ang staff niya, hindi alam? Again, hindi siya na protect ng mga taong nakapaligid sa kanya. Aba, delikado yan.
Iniisip ko pa kung sino ang iboboto ko.
Pero maliwanag po talaga sa akin kung sino ang hindi ko iboboto. And I say this will ALL DUE RESPECT to Mam Leni and her supporters.
Maniwala man po sila o hindi.
Nahihirapan lang ako dahil madami po talaga akong kilala na pro-Leni, at nauunawaan ko naman kung bakit. They want a more “gentle” administration, and they want to go back to a way of politics that is not as noisy or as adversarial as what we have now.
Pero sana po, maunawaan nila na ang politika ay naging maingay all over the world because of the increased accessibility of the internet.
At kung ang politika ay tahimik, mas matatakot ako, dahil ibig sabihin ay walang ginagawa ang gobyerno laban sa mga Kaliwa at mga Okigarkiya.
Kasi, sa kasaysayan, yang Kaliwa at Oligarkiya lang naman ang gumagawa ng organisadong INGAY tuwing nasasagasaan ang mga interest nila. Wala na pong iba.
Pasensya na po sa political post.
Pero, sometimes we have to speak up.
Kasi, kalokohan naman na isisi pa kay Sir Boy ang mga sagot ni Mam Leni. That is the height of denial and arrogance.
Everyone saw it. Boy Abunda’s platform declared that they left the answers unedited, with time limits. Kay Jessica Soho, hindi po ganun ang structure. Based on that alone, there is much less reason to doubt sir Boy’s platform over Jessica’s.
Isang maliwanag na umaga po sa lahat.
Mas liliwanag po ang araw kung magpakatotoo tayo sa sarili natin.
