GMA's use of Gov't Ads as Campaign Material

This really makes me sick. GMA is very obviously using gov't ads, which are of course paid for by taxpayers' money, for her campaign.

Just take the PCSO TV and radio ads for example. They pretty much have "Vote GMA" written all over them.

  • Why am I not surprised? :mrt:
  • GMA fights dirty, that's why she is the worst of all the presidential candidates, including Gil.
  • GMA's handlers would probably be the primary ones to blame for such dastardly behaviour. But one must also take into account her complicity.

    Not sure about the other candidates, but I get the impression that if Lacson's handlers were to try something like this, they would actually get castigated by him.

    Absolutely wrong. Lacson campaign ads had been appearing on TV in the guise of public service ads. I saw them as early as May of last year. Remember, Lacson also appeared in TV commercials and billboards of a cheap brandy as early as 2 years ago. Those ads were not meant to promote the brandy. Up to now I still see those billboards along EDSA but I can't recall the brand of the brandy. Lacson has to play the game too.

    That is the name of the game in Pinas.

    The question here is if those 'public service ads' are funded from the government budget or out of his own pocket. I would find it uncharacteristic of him if it was the former.

    emperador, i think.
  • It is legal to use public funds for public service ads. What GMA and other politicians do is ride on the public service ad. The question is whether that public service ad is necessary or not. In other words, what was the intent of the ad?

    Lacson's case was about premature campaigning. Can't blame him as GMA also did so. And who can GMA blame? FPJ.

    Btw, that brandy company has replaced some of their billboards with a new one--"Nakatikim ka na ba ng 15 anyos?" Simply bad taste on the part of that Lacson supporter.
  • It is sleazy. But we cannot do anything about it. She is still the president and she is mixing campaigning and "work" as president.
  • Gloria is indeed using public resources. And we should express dissent on this. This might lead to budget deficit and is weakening government institutions. If no one will say it is wrong, then in the long run, gagawin ulit. Saan ang pagbabago? We need to tackle this issue. I feel it is well founded and relevant. It is the tax that we are paying, our hard-earned money.

    We need to know the source of funds for the following:
    1. Programang pangtrabaho, Alagaan Kalsada (I don’t know the exact title).
    2. Her posters, both with programs and with no programs.
    3. Scholarship program – Matagal nang ipinaglalaban ni Roco, binababoy nya at politicized na.
    4. Her tv ads
    5. Who’s giving salary to Mike Defensor?
  • yup, it's disgusting. talk about the new politics after edsa dos. but i guess she needs all the help she can get to stop the fpj steamroller.
  • She's the president, for pete's sake. Lahat ng pa-pogi siyempre gagawin nila. Like showing caught criminals or drug lords on TV, siyempre pogi points yun, at di lang gov't money, media din. Like inaugurating certain projects credited to her government, which are always shown on tv.
  • Can I tell the sons of those street sweepers

    wearing shirts that proudly state that "this is a program of PGMA"

    that your father/mother was once a walking campaign poster?

    Uh sorry, krack. Si GMA lang at ang mga kabinete niya and some pols like dayrit, gordon, wycoco, angie reyes, barbers, zubiri (only gordon and barbers were chosen for the K4 senatorial slate though) ang umuubos ng taxpayer money para sa mga public service ***** political ads nila.

    I don't know what Lacson public service ads you are talking about. And I don't believe he used any gov't money for ANY of his ads.
    I saw them as early as May of last year. Remember, Lacson also appeared in TV commercials and billboards of a cheap brandy as early as 2 years ago. Those ads were not meant to promote the brandy.

    He wasn't the first one to do it. Loren, Noli, Flavier and Winnie Monsod (when she was running for senator) were ahead of him. So why only focus on him? At least hindi taxpayer-funded ang mga ads niya, right?
  • Anybody who uses public funds to win should be thrown out. How can you take the oath to enforce, preserve and protect the Constitution when you violated and decimated the constitution by showing no respect for public funds.
  • yung programang pangtrabaho kinuha ang pondo sa dagdag na road users tax sa rehistro ng mga sasakyan kaya tumaas ang bayad sa rehistro ng mga sasakyan. at about p8 billion daw ang nakulimbat ng gobyerno dun.

    yung iba naman tulad ng pcso, obvious na sa kanya kanyang agency na galing yung pondo kung kaya para safe e kasama yung mga head ng agency sa ad kahit na obvious na ikinakampanya nila si ate glow na naglukluk sa kanila sa pwesto. (kaya nga sila inilagay dun para pakinabangan naman... mga sipsip talaga) (mamamatay na lang sila e pagsipsip pa rin ang nasa isip)......obvious na kung pagtulong sa mahihirap o may sakit ang gawain ng pcso e bakit inuubos nila sa tv ang pera ng pcso (every 10 minutes meron..hindi exagerated ito)...tingin nyo kaya e kailangan pa ba yun...at subukan mong humingi ng tulong sa pcso kundi ka abutin ng 6 na buwan pero sa pagwaldas sa komersyal sa tv kahit milyon e agad agad.

    ang kapal nga ng mukha ni mr palengke na pinababa daw nya yung presyo ng gamot. wala ka namang mabili nun sa botika pa mismo ng mga ospital ng pamahalaan. yung presyo ng sasakyan na panghanapbuhay na mga pampasaherong mega taxi pinataas din nya. at presyo ng semento pinataas nya din kung kaya tumaas lahat ng bilihin sa industrya ng konstruksyon...(ginagamit na kaya sa kampanya ang nakulimbat na pera galing sa mga ito).

    yung kay naktaf e halatang scripted naman na nagpalabas ng mga pictures ng kriminal (na dati na namang nakakulong) at isa isang nahuhuli (napakagaling naman for the first time in the phil.) (yung involve nga sa tax credit scam kahit na nakahold order sa buong pilipinas e nasa abroad na, mas malaki pa ang perang nakulimbat ng mga yun kaysa sa ransom money ng mga kidnapper (daw)).....kung totoong magtratrabaho sya e dapat yung jueteng ang tapusin nya dahil dito nila kinasuhan si erap tapos tuloy pa rin pala ang jueteng......yung mga bank holdupper wala yatang nahuhuli......at lalo na yung mga drug traffiker at drug manufacturer, puros na lang drugs lang paulit ulit at walang mga tao, ganun ba sila kung manghuli (o ganun ang turo sa paaralan nila)...lagi na lang pag wala yung tao... buti pa si tulfo yung inaakusahan ang tinatawagan o pinupuntahan.

    ang saya saya no...
  • tumpak ka MR.PIDAL! :D

    i just hope people would see the same thing...eh karamihan eh BILIB pa kay GMA eh lantaran nang nilulustay ang pera ng pilipinas!!
  • Mang Pidal, si Tulfo po ay hindi man lamang nakahain ng kaso sa korte tungkol sa mga alegasyon niya kay Lacson. Sa ilalim po ng pamumuno ng kinikutya ninyong si Gloria ay 19 international at 143 local drug syndicates ang natumba, 23, 425 drug offenders ang naaresto and so far 16, 651 ang kasong naihain sa korte. Kaya ang inyong sinasabi na 'puros na lang drugs paulit-ulit at walang mga tao' ay isang haka-haka. 3,571 drug-affected barangays ang nalinis sa kalahating taong operasyon; iyon ba ang inyong nirereklamo? Hindi po kayo makaka-expect na kaagad-agad ay mawawala iyang jueteng na 'yan, tatlong taon pa lang pangulo si Gloria at kahit ikaw ay isang pangulo, you still have to deal with the corrupt bureaucracy, most of which are appointees of Erap. Lahat na lang yata isinisisi mo kay Gloria. 'yan ang mahirap sa karamihan sa ating mga kababayan, mahilig sa haka-haka, asan naman ang ebidensya.
  • eh kaya naman padagdag ng padagdag mga shabu na nacoconfiscate eh dahil sa dinadagdag nila yung previous na nakuha nila sa bagong huli! :D

    at PANO MAWAWALA ANG JUETENG...eh mismong selfproclaimed JUETENG LORD na si CHAVIT SINGSON eh kaibigan ni GMA?! eh kapatid nga niyang si HONEY GIRL nilagay pa sa isang napakahalagang institusyon ng gobyerno kung saan may malaking pera, PCSO! :rolleyes:

    wag nang umasa na isosolve ni GMA yan pag siya ang nanalo

    kay PING LACSON... ilelegalize ang JUETENG! :D it's about time, we make money out of this... at hindi lang sila ang makabenefit dito! tutal, na sa kultura na natin ang sugal...imposibleng mawala pa to! magpakatotoo tayo! lagyan na ng TAX to!! ;)
  • TAMA NA ANG 3 YEARS OF MISUSE OF PUBLIC FUNDS!!! we need a new president! pagpinaabot pa natin ng 6 yrs, baka maging PIDAL country na tayo :D
