OUR Eleksyon 2007 podcast recording sessions are private affairs, not press conferences which are open to the public or members of other publications. Which is why we’re surprised that representatives from other media outlets have gone to the INQUIRER.net office on several occasions.
I was not witness to this. But I was only told later what happened. It’s sad that this happened. In a cutthroat world of journalism, “exclusives” are hard to come by. When you get it, you get psychic income — meaning a pat on the back (or even a promotion). It is only fair that we journalists should treat each other with respect. And respect comes naturally when you treat others the same way.
Enough said. Let’s move on.
