Bzzzzz: Tomas's beef on news report

CEBU City Mayor Tomas Osmeña complains, in a Facebook post, against part of a news story (Tuesday, Feb. 8) that reports assignment of eight soldiers to Ermita “despite” the arrest of three AFP members in a drug den in Guadalupe.

“Quick, compare,” he wrote, three articles, three newspapers but one story is different from the others. The difference may be the context to the story. The Ermita group and the Guadalupe culprits belong to different units but they’re all soldiers.

ONE MORE DEFECTING?

A Cebu City councilor identified with Team Rama had a long chat with Mayor Tomas over a bottle of red wine in the house of a common friend of the two public officials.

Could it lead to the councilor’s defection to BOPK? Clue: he’s not one of the two earlier rumored to change parties (James Cuenco and Philip Zafra).

IMPUNITY? NOT LEILA

“Impunity” is freedom from punishment or harm. Did the Department of Justice in its “joint resolution” to indict Sen. Leila de Lima know what it means?

The resolution said de Lima made the “lame excuse” that those going after her (Duterte, Aguirre and Ong) are fraternity brothers and should recuse themselves. If they would, that would “afford impunity” to her, it said.

Impunity belongs to those in power, not their target.

MANILA ARCHBISHOP?

The spiritual leader of the Catholic Church may be the one referred to in the DOJ resolution when it said, “Even the most ideological leader in (the) spiritual realm, can be manipulative (manipulated?) by means of pervasive fallacy of power and indulged in an onslaught (of) drugs and corruption issues.” The archbishop of Manila?
