Dipaculao and Dilasag Love Arroyo

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 can’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 can’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!

  3. I think there is no need to express support to the president for what she is encoutring now whether it is an expression of money mattersto for personal interest or for whatever purposes. What you need now is to administer your towns coz, that is your pledge. Maximize your towns resources and give it to your constituents. We are experiencing political crises in our country and do not participate on it. Kung ang hangad nyo e tumulong sa bayan gumawa ng paraan para dito, huwag sanang gamitin and pulitika para sa sariling interes, maiintindihan naman siguro kayo ng mga kababayan nyo. Maawa naman sana kayo sa bayan at sa bansa natin

  4. certified,

    these areas are not paying for the ads i suspect those loggers operating the said areas are funding for the ads. In the first place i really really doubt they the sanggunian has that bloody money to fund an ad of the most corrupt leader of our time!

    Cheers

    Aurora Forever!!

  5. Nayari mo pakeng Botyok, bull’s eye! Saan nga kukunin ng mga nabanggit na bayan ang kwarta alam naman nating mahihirap ang mga bayang iyan. Kung hindi sa kanila nanggaling , kanino pa kung hindi sa mga maperang tao sa Aurora. Loggers? mga politiko? o sino mang may balak na malaking pabuya sa darating na panahon? Tiyak na alam laang ng mga taga Aurora ang mga ito.
