Almost daily last month, DZMM station manager Angelo Palmones made the claim that Romulo Neri was demoted to chair CHED because he, Neri, dared to question Secretary Gary Teves' financial policies and projections and "tell the truth" [TM].
Meanwhile, in an interview with Joel Reyes Zobel a few minutes ago, Iloilo Vice Governor Rolex Suplico says Neri was demoted in order to make the facilitation of the ZTE deal smoother.
So which is it? Finance policy or ZTE? Will Palmones modify his story given Suplico's statement?
Speaking of Joel Reyes Zobel, this radio commentator made some harsh comments against Rolex Suplico last November for the latter's moves in the Commission of Appointments to block Secretary Teves' confirmation as Finance secretary. Today, he was Suplico's close chum on air.
