Angel Locsin, Maalaala Mo Kaya episode, binatikos ng UPLB

Ang official statement ng University of the Philippines Los Baños tungkol sa episode ng Maalaala Mo Kaya na tinampukan ni Angel Locsin at tumanggap ng mga batikos mula sa mga televiewers:

“Our attention has been called by constituents and alumni to an episode featured in Maalaala Mo Kaya entitled Blusa, which was aired on ABS-CBN on Feb. 28 and on TFC recently. Our constituents and alumni were concerned whether the episode was based on truth.

The story was of a woman who allegedly graduated BS AgriBusiness, summa cum laude, from the University of the Philippines Los Baños or UPLB, who could not find a job, and ended up a stripper. We tried to find out who the subject was by tracking all 27 of our summa cum laude graduates from the time the University was established in 1909. We could not find anyone matching the subject as portrayed in Blusa.

Whether or not the subject was a UPLB graduate, we deeply sympathize with her and her family. However, in the interest of maintaining its reputation as a truthful storyteller, the MMK should have a mechanism to validate claims by letter senders especially those that require a stretch of imagination as to be believed.

While indeed touching and a perfect example of a human-interest story, Blusa regrettably affected the reputation of UPLB as an educational institution and its constituents and alumni. We therefore request ABS-CBN to set the record straight and correct the wrong impression that it created among its viewers. We also make an appeal to producers of similar programs to be more prudent in reporting stories with claims that would affect the reputation not only of a school but also of its alumni in the Philippines and abroad.

siguro ung sender nga dapat "batikosin", pero the producers/writers should also have done some fact-checking on their part. madami kasi masasaktan kung hindi din naman talaga tutuo yung storya na ipinararating, di ba? mukhang nakuryente mga taga MMK

parang lumalabas na hindi marunong magresearch ang staff ng ABS-CBN. Shame on you guys. You sensationalized the story too much and it deviated from the truth by a big margin. I really hope that you're happy with defaming the school. The writers shouldn't have mentioned the name of the school involved. I sure hope that you guys should try to verify the information you get before broadcasting them. It only proves that you guys aren't good enough.

comment lang naman. nakakainis kasi na isipin na hindi naman kayo nagverify ng info.
