Inquirer PHAIL  

Posted by Laya in

I couldn't believe my eyes.

And me an avid reader of Inquirer, too. Which is to say I buy the newspaper 8 times out of 10, except if I need classified ads (I go to the Bulletin for that). Online, I also go to the website a lot.

And then to have my eyes confronted with THIS. The worst part is that it doesn't seem to be satirical at all. Which brings me to the question: How the hell did this ever get published, and in INQUIRER for good measure?

A friend of mine commented on the blog post. Twice. Her comments are still "awaiting moderation" (see below). She got peeved because her comments never got published in spite of the fact that incendiary comments were being published right and left and people were mudslinging like crazy down the center, which is how I got to know about the article. Oh, is it because the propriety of publishing the article was called into question?

And they say we bloggers are irresponsible journalists. Oh wait. The person who wrote that "blog post" is a blogger too, right? Which makes me ask, again, where the Inquirer gets off in publishing what he wrote. If I wrote like that I wouldn't even make it within a shadow of Youngblood.

Yeah, right. Editorial policy, prerogative to choose and all that. Legitimate opinion? A blog post that vulgar belongs in FHM. Or Playboy. Not in a national daily. I hope his mother, sisters and aunts read what he wrote. "Honesty" lording it over "hypocrisy", yet. Personally, I view it as the triumph of vulgarity over good breeding, if he had any in the first place.

I have already expressed my opinion of Hayden Kho and of the disproportionate response to the situation in previous posts, and go on record as commending Kat for her strength.

Sorry, Inquirer. My good opinion of you just slipped 25% lower.
