After Vice-President Leni Robredo made a speech at the GoNegosyo Forum side event of the ASEAN Summit on April 28, a video uploaded on Tweeter by a Philippine Daily Inquirer reporter went viral after netizens reacted on it because according to them, the Inquirer reporter misheard the lady on the video.
Political analyst and blogger, Sass Sasot, screenshot Julliane de Jesus' tweet and posted it on her official Facebook page, For the Motherland - Sass Rogando Sasot, with this caption:
Inquirer journalist Julliane de Jesus tweeted, asking her readers to WATCH a video of a lady approaching Leni Robredo to tell her: "You're my President, ma'am."Netizens who happened to watch the said video agreed to Sasot's post.
However, when you WATCH the video the lady says: "Ma'am dito po presidente namin."
De Jesus claimed she heard it earlier. But posted no evidence.
Jojo Robles, a veteran columnist and currently working at the Manila Standard, named the woman on the video and said the source De Jesus' quoted are both denying her story.
The woman misheard by the PDI reporter is FFCCCI vice president Mary Ng Go. She is a billionaire businesswoman involved in the packaging industry and a friend and ally (in Fil-Chi federation politics) of tycoon Lucio Tan.Meanwhile, the video uploaded by De Jesus' on her tweeter account was already deleted as of this writing.
Through a mutual friend, she relayed to me that she DID NOT say that Leni was her president. She was introducing her company's president to Leni after the VP made a speech at the GoNegosyo Forum side event of the Asean summit. She is mortified that she could be so grossly misquoted.
To the reporter, Julliane de Jesus: If you're wrong, you're wrong. Everybody makes mistakes. Don't be an idiot, young woman, and insist that what you heard was right even when the video and the source you quoted are both denying your story.
