from gmanews.tv: Wave of Pro Arroyo ads appear on eve of Fridays planned rally:
A wave of paid advertisements supporting President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo while criticizing her political opponents appeared on Metro Manila newspapers Thursday, on the eve of a rally for truth in Manila scheduled on Friday.
Two separate paid ads also appeared from the towns of Dipaculao and Dilasag in Aurora province.
I rarely read hard copies of newspaper, so this should be verified but I was listening to Joe Taruc on DZRH this morning and one of their guest commented over the phone that it’s strange that a small town in the farthest part of Aurora would run an ad in the papers because they don’t even circulate the newspapers mentioned in the town. FYI a full-page ad on a broadsheet is worth more than 200,000 pesos. If the municipalities of Dipaculao and Dilasag paid for those ads, then they must have lots of money to spare.
Update: It seems like Dinalungan also Hearts Arroyo. From the comments:
I did not see the papers yesterday. However, I saw the same ad from the Municipality of Dinalungan in the Nov 9 issue of the Manila Bulletin. It was a full-page ad. I learned that the cost of that ad is about 200,000 pesos. Until now I canâ€™t believe that the government of Dinalungan can afford to pay for such useless ads. Its an absolute waste of public money! And I also canâ€™t see the logic in putting the ad when said newspaper are not circulated there. Is that their way of soliciting development projects from GMA? How desperate!
