Praise the Media for keeping us update of the crisis. We have learned our lesson now that in this hour of crisis, we should forget our differences and unite to support our newly elected President.

Letter to Editor--Arab News

This is about my reactions how the former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo showed her love to her countrymen and the OFWs in general at the time she’s the president of Philippines and how the media worked to help in the negotiation between our Philippine government representatives and the extremists in Iraq to free Angelo Dela Cruz from his captors. This reaction was intended to Arab News – the leading English Newspaper in Saudi Arabia, eight years ago but I did not able to send it off.

First Paragraph: Kudos to Media

Salute and applause should be set forth not only to former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, to Foreign Secretary Delia Albert and to Undersecretary Rafael E. Seguis. It is true that they worked hard to free Angelo Dela Cruz from his captors. President Arroyo’s decision to pull the troops out of Iraq in exchange of Angelo release was right. But the most glory should be given to the Media. It was the Media who helped much in the negotiation between our Philippine government representatives and the extremists.

Second Paragraph: Angelo Dela Cruz an Instant Sensational Superstar

People behind Al-Jazeera Network, the TFC of ABS-CBN, GMA7, Radio Stations and all the Newspapers in Philippines and in the Kingdom including the Internet deserve our utmost thanks, standing ovation and appreciation for what they have done in the hour of the crisis. They have made Angelo Dela Cruz an instant sensational superstar in Philippines and round the world with their news reports. Angelo Dela Cruz had become a Filipino Everyman, a symbol of the hardworking Filipino seeking hope and opportunity, described by the former President Arroyo.

Third Paragraph: Media had Become The Linking Bridge

Through Media, millions of OFWs round the world witnessed the motherly care of former President Arroyo for Angelo Dela Cruz and his family left in Philippines. The media had become the linking bridge and spread sheet to fill our sentiments for Angelo and to other victims of unfavorable circumstances.

Fourth Paragraph: Views and Comments from The People

From media, we heard and read many different views and comments from the people asking:

  • What is the difference between Angelo Dela Cruz and a Filipina killed in Singapore? When at the time her bereaved family went to OWWA to get what was due for her, OWWA declared, “no funds!”
  • How lucky and important was Dela Cruz compared to the three Filipino killed in Al-Khobar, to a Filipino truck driver killed in Iraq by extremists ambushed? They were also our Filipino brothers and sister, who sought hope and opportunities in foreign lands with families left in Philippines.
  • Do their bereaved families in Philippines receive fair attention and care from Arroyo’s government?

Now the former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is facing charges of election fraud.

I think it's media who has the pivotal role in making and unmaking of a president.
