Ted Failon & the Media (2)

Hell hath no fury like the Media scorned. No, that should be: It is fearful to fall into the hands of an angry ABS-CBN.

That is what the police who oh-so-triumphantly arrested five members of Ted Failon's household must have realized by now.  They are now being publicly scrutinized with video footages belying some of their defensive statements.  The same media that helped sensationalize this tragic death now unleashes its power to clear Failon's name primarily with testimonies of family and friends, and to seek justice for the humiliation the police has slapped on the grieving family.

ABS-CBN is fuming mad, but now more mindful, I guess, of how its manner of reportage could either damn or justify the innocent.
