Mayor Isko Moreno’s camp issued a statement clearly belittling SMNI hence turned down the invitation to attend the Presidential debate and hence cannot cancel a previously scheduled appearance because the latter isn’t a major outlet like CNN Philippines, ABS-CBN, News5 and GMA News.
Isko’s camp asked questions like – how many people watch SMNI to begin with? How many subscribe to SMNI?
On that note, social media influencer MJ Quiambao Reyes took to Facebook to scold Moreno for belittling SMNI News. Reyes conceded that SMNI News may not be a major outlet like he said but it’s them who came up with the most cerebral presidential forum. Said having that prior commitment prevent him from attending the SMNI News presidential debate was already enough since anyways, their absence, all 4 of them were not missed by the viewers.
Instead, all 4 of them who skipped the SMNI event missed the opportunity to show to the public how deep their knowledge, judgment and principles.
Isko’s statement annoyed netizens, calling him arrogant.
Ang yabang talaga. Marami kaming nanood last night.
Mayabang hahaha sana magpakahumble ka muna remember di ikaw ang number 1 sa survey bro
He show his real character .Is this a kind of character if maging pangulo siya. Kung saan ang malalakas dun ka lng ba? Do not underestimate SMNI umabot ng 1.7 million viewers sa Facebook and 1.4miliion sa YouTube.
Hindi kyo kawalan ng smni, mas mganda nga n wla kyo, dhil mganda ang flow ng event, mataas ang energy at respetuhan ng bawat isa. Kung nandun kc kayo, nagpapataasan kyong apat ng ihi, nagppasaringan, at nagsisiraan. Kgabi wlng ganun, although sa bandang huli, ngpasaring n nmn si leody ng tungkol sa ML at mga marcos, pero wlng pumansin. Ganun ang style ng mga losers, kailangang manlibak ng kapwa para iangat ang sarili nila, kaso, ayaw ng majority ang ganun
You may now read Reyes’ original FB pots below.
YORME, hindi mo dapat minaliit pa ang SMNI News. They may not be a major outlet but it was they who came up with the most cerebral presidential forum by far. OK na sana yung dahilan mo na you have previous engagement. Period. Wala namang problema at di din naman kayo hinanap o na-miss ng viewers.
Na-miss nyo nga lang na 4 yung pagkakataon na mapakita sana sa taumbayan ang lalim ng inyong kaalaman, wisyo, at prinsipyo.
