No wonder I heard so much whining at Tony Velasquez's DZMM news program today. They had the chief of their Research Group as a guest on their program and she came across as a whining 4-year old girl who couldn't get her mom to buy her a new barbie doll. In fact they all sounded like that.
ABS-CBN has been trailing behind GMA for a couple of years now. The conspirialist in me thinks that the whole thing is a publicity stunt created by the aggrieved itself in order to boost its ratings [as to who will measure the rise in ratings is yet to be determined], discredit past ratings survey results and tarnish the image of its rival, GMA.
To be honest, I haven't watched local television on a regular basis since 2000. I guess I should be thankful for that. Yes, I'm culturally illiterate in some aspects of local popular culture which originates from the belly of the media-beast. I've only watched one episode of Marimar [since I was staying at a cousin's house in Iloilo] and none of the F4 and Korean telenovelas. I don't know who the new doubtfully-talented artists kids worship these days and I am dreadfully ignorant of the implications of the new Big Brother winner to the nation. But I couldn't care less.
