ABS-CBN should punish Vice, hire professional hosts
King Solomon wrote the Book of Proverbs in the Bible. Chapter 10 verse 31 says: “The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, but a perverse tongue will be cut off.”
On this note, I am dipping a finger into the kerfuffle recently created by a Neanderthal in his gig at a large venue where he lampooned a respectable television journalist in carte blanche fashion. I am referring to someone with the moniker Vice Ganda. Suing him is not enough, if we go by what King Solomon said.
As to Charo Santos-Concio, president and CEO of ABS-CBN and his boss who was seen responding to his “joke” with a sardonic laugh, she must learn some lessons in good manners and right conduct, a subject drilled into the hearts and minds of public elementary school pupils way back in the past. I hope she has nothing to do with the script, and hope further that the mention of Jessica Soho’s name was accidental, not intentional.
On another note, can’t ABS-CBN get the likes of Eddie Ilarde, Pepe Pimentel, Tony Quirino and Bob Ledesma who were professional as TV hosts, whether in the way they talk and in the way they dress. Paging Mr. Gabby Lopez. Please look into this!
