Veteran TV Host and political analyst Jay Sonza slams the mainstream media for sensationalizing and focusing on Pres. Bongbong Marcos wristwatch rather than the inauguration during one of the country’s most important day to remember.
According to retired broadcaster the mainstream media were acting like neighborhood Marites rather than the watchdog of Philippine democracy by dedicating a contemptuous news article on PBBM’s expensive wristwatch instead of writing about the observance of protocols and traditions of a presidential inauguration.
The veteran journalist and supporter of both Pres. Rody Duterte and President Bongbong Marcos shared his frustration and was so furious against the mainstream media as they allegedly ade a fuss of President Bongbong Marcos’ Patek Philippe wristwatch when everybody knows that the former senator already owned a luxury watch in his bachelor days.
This is aside from the fact that the Marcos family and his wife’s family already belong to the alta sociedad so owning one expensive wristwatch is no longer a big deal to them.
Jay Sonza stated that the rich and successful people, wearing expensive watches like Patek in important occassion is a standard part of men’s wardrobe.
The veteran journalist even added that who’s who in the Philippines who attended the June 30 inauguration of Pres. Bongbong Marcos wore luxury wrist like the one worn by PBBM.
Jay Sonza ended his post claiming that he know a farmer who wears a Patek wristwatch when attends Sunday mass.
Read the Complete Statement of Jay Sonza:
WATCHDOG O INGGIT NA MARITES LANG ANG PEG.
Here’s a typical reaction of the “wokes” of Imperial Manila.
Instead of writing about the observance of protocols and traditions of a presidential inauguration; the valedictory address of the incoming president; and the directions spelled in the first nationwide address, this “mainstream media” chose to write with contempt, the wrist watch of the duly elected chief executive of the nation.
Ginagawang napakalaking bagay na nagmamay-ari ng Patek Phillipe si Mr. Marcos, gayong alam naman ng lahat na binata pa lang si Bongbong ay nagsusuot na ito ng dekalidad na relo. Bukod dito, ang pamilya niya at pamilya ng kanyang maybahay ay galing sa buena familia at alta sociedad at maliit na bagay sa kanila ang pagkakaroon ng ganitong piyesa.
Sa aming mga nakakaintindi, nagsikap at nakapag-ipon, ang pagsusuot ng Patek o kahalintulad na relo sa mga mahahalagang pagtitipon ay standard part of wardrobe o must wear for the occasion.
Katunayan, halos lahat ng mga may sinasabi sa lipunan na dumalo sa magkakasunod na pagtitipon noong June 30 ay nakasuot ng ganitong uri ng mga kagamitan.
Mayroon nga akong kilalang magsasaka na nagsusuot nito tuwing may okasyon na puputanhan tulad ng pagsisimba tuwing linggo.
