You know, it was bound to happen.

EDIT: And thus all things come to an end.

The Chikatime gang knew how to dig deep. And they did it well. Jenni knew how to fish them out – and still be very charitable (huge commendations to her). At the end of the day, it’s a battle of wits. Which is perhaps, at least in my opinion, a true reflection of the realities of publishing in the Philippines and maybe even worldwide. It may not always be about the news or the rumors, but about who has the power to seal fate. After all, we’re all human. Beyond that, we’re either heroes or just really stupid.

This is a really small industry. This publishing thing.

Once you poke into it, someone is bound to be more brazen than you. It isn’t about right or wrong. For me, people are free to do whatever they want, as long as they are man (or woman enough) to face the consequences of their actions.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, as of yesterday Chikatime is down. And they’re being challenged.

Why waste time writing a hate/gossip blog? Guilty pleasures, I know, but still. I know nation building is all about conversation, but …

Kudos man. That does look awesome, and if tastes half as good as it looks, you’ve got a winner there. Keep at it!

All I can is that Jenni Epperson is quite a blogger. Never really understood chikatime’s hatred of her. She’s not a druggie. She works hard and he “kabaduyan” is actually endearing. Nevertheless, I wish to God the guy doesn’t go to jail. Jenni should have pitty.

sa true lang, mas duwag si jenni. why? because when she was being fanned in chikatime, it was not really libelous. she is a public persona or she claims to be one, surely she relishes her “celebrity”. so, she is fair game for gossip sites. if you take gossip sites seriously, then YOU’RE the one who has a problem!!and i mean that.

what was mentioned about jenni sa chikatime was her bragging about being a rich girl with a shopping magazine daw in the Philippines when she went to Singapore. binola nya ang isang Singaporean blogger. all that chikatime did was exposed her!

lahat naman dun for fun. it was meant to serve as a wake up call too for the HIGH Society. even respectable broadsheets merong ganito, like Cocktales and Maurice Arcache, Anton san diego, etc..mas grabe nga yung kay Brian Gorell because what was being alluded to the Gucci Gang is a crime, errr, crimes!

sayang ang chikatime. masyado kasing matatakutin mga writers. where is freedom of the press. yung blog nyo naman parang kasabihang pinoy lang, bato bato sa langit ang tamaan wag magalit.

ang sa wari ko, mas dapat mahiya si jenni epperson. sayang talaga, guilty pleasure ko pa naman tong chikatime, hehe..they make the high and mighty, rich and powerful, to keep their uberpampered feet on the ground.

another thing, ms. epperson is also making anonymous blogging a crime. it is not. a lot of respectable blogs are doing it anonymously too. it doesn’t mean when you make balandra your name, you are brave or respectable. far from it.

there are several reasons why there are anonymous blogs, not just it. but it doesn’t make them any less a citizen journalist. at least they don’t always write about themselves.. no me me me, just me, about me, what did i do today, what did i buy today..etc..
