The article tries to fact check the testimony of the witnesses but instead becomes a he said she said article.
It fails to ask the right questions and instead muddies the issue. Trash journalism.
Let us give a simple example of the enclosed excerpt.
In the article the issue of the housing of relocation is a statement by Binay that :
‘Binigyan na kayo ng lupa, gusto n’yo pa ng bahay?” (He said, “You were already given lands, you still want to be given houses?”).
The article then quotes a resident:
The issue was how unapologetic nay entitled Binay’s wording was. It was as if a King/Queen was telling his subjects you are alive what more can you ask for.
While the quoted person was addressing not what was said but the options the people in Homeville had.
And the the stupid reported didn’t have the sense to ask. Where does one live for 6 months while the HomeVille housing was being constructed while you are already here in Calauan?
WTF this is probably an overmatched intern or a paid hack.
EntitlementLani claimed, “Ang mga tao, takot lang magsalita. Siyempre, Binay ito. Kung paalisin sila? (The people here are just afraid to talk. Of course, this is Binay’s. What if they get evicted?)”To outsiders, the relocation site is Binay Compound. But to residents, it’s Makati Home Ville, and the 40-hectare property was purchased by the city government of Makati.Before the Senate committee, Edison recalled asking the Vice President about his alleged promise of providing them shelter: “Sabi niya, ‘Binigyan na kayo ng lupa, gusto n’yo pa ng bahay?” (He said, “You were already given lands, you still want to be given houses?”).Lopez outrightly dismissed this: “Hindi totoo ‘yan (That’s not true)!”“Yung mga may kaya na magtayo nang sarili nila, okay lang na magtayo. Yung di kaya magtayo, lilipat sila sa pabahay, (Those who have the means, they may build their houses. Those who can’t, will be moved to the housing units),” Zeny explained.THOSE WHO ARE ABLE. Residents with the means to build their own houses are encouraged to do so. Those who can’t, will move to the housing units.The housing units in Phase 3 were completed in March 2013. But it took 4 years since the first relocatees were moved to Makati Home Ville before the housing units were finished. They weren’t occupied until 6 months later.
