Patricia's Faye, a hoax?

Dear Mouse,

My comment box sucks, that is the truth so I am publishing my response to the off-topic comment of xp regarding the Faye's hoax issue.

I tried to e-mail patricia before i wrote my piece about faye but it didn't go through.

When the group of the UP law students won in an international competition in England, I was the first to post it in my blog. Local newspapers published the news, days after.

As far as I can remember, Sassy even checked out the website of the contest sponsoring organization because there was no news about it from the local newspapers. Unfortunately, the website was not updated.

Sad to say that our local media are the last to come up with newsworthy article about our kababayans because they have a memo from the editor what should go to the front page and what should be buried among the recycled news in the inside pages of the BROADSHEET.

I am not saying that Faye's story is not a hoax. But I can entertain the ff: possibilities:

1. That there is indeed a student who competed in an international quiz who did not get the support of the lawmakers, government officials and a host of people who seemed to have misplaced their priorities but the name is not Faye.

2. That there are people who do not want bad publicity and therefore they would do their best to censor any news about "Faye".

3. That there was indeed a Faye but the incident could have happened before Trias' red carpet welcome. The "author" of the Faye story must have thought that time warping is needed to deliver the message across.

Whoever the author of Faye' story is, he's good.

Hoax or not, it tells of the sad truth about our government's lack of support for our bright students.

Sana nga hoax lang ito kasi talagang nakakainis na kung totoo ito. Kitang-kita ang priorities ng media na ang gusto lang nila ay ang makabenta ng maraming sipi ng kanilang dyaryo, wala na.

The story may have been bits and pieces of many other little stories all crapped up to make on big hoax,or "story",if you may.
I am very disappointed about this story.The writer,and the supposed "facts".
Let's get the moral of the story. Period.
This "fiction" has been "commercialized and sensationalized".Too sad.
If the story were true,let's put an end to the political career of this "wise" senator. It's as simple as that!
