MABALACAT CITY – A staunch Mabalaqueño advocate for good governance has called out John Susi’s radio program after some “filler anchor” was added to his morning show following the start of the local campaign period.
Patrick Fiel Sacay, leader of Ibalaus ing Bayung Mabalacat Movement (IBMM), said in a statement that Mr. Susi and his radio program should not let other people tarnish the used-to-be good reputation of their morning program.
“Brigada should get true broadcasters to substitute the main anchor, not some propagandista,” said Sacay hitting the substitute host, who is known to be a propagandist for local and national politicians.
“Hindi natin kailangan ng fake news sa ere! Sobrang dami na ng fake news sa social media, huwag na sana itong umorbit pa sa radyo, utang na loob,” said Sacay in lieu of his stance to stop the exploitation of various broadcast platforms for the benefit of politicking.
Sacay divulged that the new filler anchor stated that his friend, who is a candidate on the May polls, leads on a so-called online survey. The episode was aired on March 28, 2022, over Brigada News 92.7.
“Idol John, huwag niyo pong hayaan abusuhin ng inyong kasamahan ang kabaitan ninyo. Sana maging professional sila at sana irespeto nila ang iyong programa, ang inyong istasyon, at higit sa lahat ang inyong mga tagapakinig,” Sacay added. (PRESS RELEASE)
