Radio Host Criticizes GMA's "Serbisyong Totoo" But Silent on Igan-Sarah Balabagan Issue

Radio host and veteran blogger Mark Lopez criticized GMA News particularly their "Serbisyong Totoo" byword because the company did not issue any statement regarding the controversy involving one of their journalist Arnold Clavio and his relationships with former victim Sarah Balabagan.



According to Mark Lopez the Arnold Clavio-Sarah Balabagan saga is not a mere private encounter of consenting adults. It is not about even the paternity aspect of it.

It is not also about letting go of something that transpired 22 years ao. The pain and hurt may be gone, but the consequence and impact to society has not.



The controversy should focus on the alleged abuse of a journalist of his influence and power as media personality over troubled and highly vulnerable minor.

Mark Lopez noted that Arnold Clavio used his position as a reporter to impose his will on someone who was at that moment weak, defenseless, and too trusting to anyone who wouldd show the appropriate attention.

Arnold Clavio took advantage of his media credential to lure Sarah Balabagan into submission.

A few days ago, the former OFW victim, Sarah Balabagan admitted on her Live Video posted on social media, admitted that the father of his eldest son is no other than veteran TV Host and journalist Arnold Clavio.



Read the Complete Statement of Mark Lopez:

SERBISYONG TOTOO

Let’s make it clear.

The Arnold Clavio-Sarah Balabagan saga is not a mere private encounter of consenting adults. And it is not about even about the paternity aspect of it.

No, it is not about letting go of something that transpired 22 years ago. The pain and hurt may be gone, but the consequence and impact to society has not.

What this boils down is the abuse of a journalist of his influence and power as a media personality over a troubled and highly vulnerable minor.

Arnold Clavio used his position as a reporter to impose his will on someone who was at that moment weak, defenseless, and too trusting to anyone who would show the appropriate attention.



Arnold Clavio took advantage of his media credential to lure Sarah Balabagan into submission. It was his status as a member of the fourth estate which made him credible to her. It was his affiliation with a media giant that made her susceptible to trust him completely.

Worse, Arnold Clavio even coerced Sarah Balabagan to keep the sexual encounter a secret for a long time, all the more reinforcing his power over her due to his stature.

This is a clear case of media manipulation and exploitation.

This is the classic example of media blatantly shoving its badge into our faces and demanding their supposed right to interfere with our lives, on the pretext of truth and the right of the public to information.

Again, this is not a simple sex scandal.

This is MEDIA arrogance, hubris and perversion.

Walang kinikilingan, walang pinoprotektahan, walang kasinungalingan... serbisyong totoo lang!

Putres.
