Sentro February 9, 2010

Last tuesday, the topic of discussion between Iya and myself centered on Presidential forums, especially the latest by the Philippine Daily Inquirer held at the University of the Philippines last February 8.

The main points raised are as follows:
1. Mud throwing between candidates, including by the candidate that is supposedly running on "character".
2. A debate is better than a forum, so that voters can differentiate the candidates based on their platform
3. We question why Presidential forums are not covered by everyone in the mass media, and covered only by those who are part of its production?
4. In different forums, why are the same questions asked over and over again..
5. Why there are many people who ask question and not assign one anchor who will ask all the questions?

The above broadcast may now be heard online from LINK

Mikee Cojuangco Leads Black Propaganda Campaign for Cousin Noynoy

The buzz in the blogosphere is that Noynoy Aquino, through cousin Mikee Cojuangco, engaged a web development firm called Voncore to design and develop a black propaganda website to help take down Aquino's chief rival Manny Villar in the May 2010 elections.

According to its company website, Voncore is owned by Rogelio Santos, Jr, a US-based entrepreneur who also happens to be a fan of Noynoy Aquino on Facebook.

The whistle-blower hinted that a briefing for the project was held at the residence of Mikee for the development team.

The plan was to copy the look and feel of Manny Villar's website and use a close-sounding web address -- reportedly -- to draw voters to the site, and then bombard them with black propaganda content once there. This is a tactic known as "phishing", and commonly used by Internet hackers to steal credit card numbers and other sensitive information from unsuspecting users.

And how would you know this?

And if Manny Villar's web team did not prepare for this, he shouldn't be President, should he?
