boobtube battle

The Philippines is not only divided by politics, religion & cultural diversity but by the TELEVISION. Haven't you been ask before if you are a kapuso or kapamilya? I dont know about the other countries but this network war is one of a kind. Personally i dont like the kapuso/kapamilya tags, i just find it absurd that despite the "positive" taglines they promote dispute. Competition is not bad but what we have now is not healthy anymore. the on air "parinigan" telling that they are "no.1", "the original" etc. makes me sick. Television is very influential so it really has great effects on its viewers. Case in point one of the forums I visit has an intense dispute between the "kapamilyas" & the "kapusos" to the point that they are starting to hit below the belt. Every day they fight over their favorite shows telling that they are the best, the original and no.1. They fight over ratings and some even post fraud stuff then the name calling starts. Whenever a new show from their hated channel is being launched they will already label it as a horrible show without even seeing it. The tabloids even worst things up. Some columnists are allies of a network and their main job is to criticize the show & stars of the other network. Constructive criticisms are rare but mostly destructive articles that has no direct connection to the show. The people are becaming fanatics of the networks NOT the shows. I really wonder why they have deep grudges over a network. What do they get out of it? I have read that somewhere two drunk guys had a heated argument over which channel is the best and it lead to stabbing each other. I was shocked by this news. Now is this what the networks want?

Watch out for my next batch of blogs because I'll be talking about those crazy ratings. How is it computed? How accurate are those? Is it really correct?

i also hate the on air word war between two networks.... it really promotes not their kapamilya or kapuso attitude but "war" between their viewers....

If I would be the MTRCB chair I would have suspended both networks.

No problem dude. Basta, you write and write. It doesn't matter what you write as long as you can fully express yourself in your writing.

Sa huli kapag expressive ka na at sanay ka na, lahat ng topic at styles of writing pwede mo a iapply sa course/career mo. :)
