Maalaala Mo Kaya explains
Sinagot ng Maalaala Mo Kaya ng ABS-CBN ang reklamo ng mga estudyante ng UPLB tungkol sa ipinalabas nilang episode ng isang UPLB cum laude na nang walang makuhang trabaho ay pumasok na stripper. Nakakasira umano sa reputasyon ng kanilang eskuwelahan ang nasabing episode.
Pero ayon sa sagot ng MMK, isang AgriBusiness summa cum laude ng UPLB.
Narito ang kabuuang sagot ng MMK:
Storytelling in Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) is always based on narratives sent to the program by people who want to share their stories. MMK decides to go into production of the chosen stories, ONLY after the letter sender has signed a waiver attesting to the authenticity of the story sent.
MMK recognizes that a number of UPLB alumni are questioning the truthfulness of one letter sender who claims that her sister, the main character in Blusa essayed by Ms. Angel Locsin, was indeed a UPLB BS AgriBusiness, summa cum laude graduate, who could not find a job and ended up as a stripper.
When MMK found out about the adverse reactions, the MMK production group went back to the letter sender to inform her of the issue raised and to re-verify her account. She reiterated that she stands by her story.
Be that as it may, and after careful deliberation, MMK realizes that its writing and research pool may have been remiss in one thing—--verifying with UPLB the veracity of the indicated facts of the letter sender. Having said that, MMK sincerely apologizes for the oversight.
MMK always aims for truth and excellence. This incident may have deviated from its tight norm, but rest assured that MMK will continue to serve its publics with utmost care and respect.
