Boy Abunda Shares His Point of View on Martial Law
The King of Talk Boy Abunda has questioned the point of view of Filipinos when it comes to ‘Martial Law’ and shares his own point of view.
Following the GMA interview with the presidential contenders, Boy Abunda will have a one-on-one interview with each of them. On social media today, Abunda’s interview with presidential hopefuls Ping Lacson, Bongbong Marcos, Isko Moreno, Manny Pacquiao, and Leni Robredo was debated.
It should be noted that Marcos declined to host an interview on GMA News’ ‘The Presidential Interviews’ because the host, Jessica Soho, was biased. He did agree, though, that they would only take part in the interview with Abunda.
As a consequence, a video of her sharing her thoughts on Toni Gonzaga’s interview with BBM became viral on social media once more. The ‘King of Talk’ also discussed his thoughts on martial law.
According to Abunda, the Marcoses have always been blamed for the events that occurred under martial law. He did, however, point out that there are others participating in it.
“Hindi lang naman sila ang involve sa martial law, nasan ang iba?” said Abunda “President Ramos became President, senator Enrile became a senate president ang daming narratives na pinangagalingan nito,” he said in an interview with Miguel Dumaual.
“Others became successful, others got lost but when we talk about martial law it is simply about the Marcoses which is a little myopic in that regard,” he added.
It should be remembered that Ramos and Enrile were members of Marcos’ cabinet at the time, which was also accused of being involved in some of the worst incidents that occurred during the martial law period. He also backed Gonzaga after she was chastised last year for interviewing Bongbong Marcos.
He said that the television personality should not be chastised in his BBM interview since his show’s topic is not investigative. He also referred to the Philippines’ legal system if Filipinos demand that Marcoses be imprisoned.
“Do we blame everybody who did an interview with Bongbong Marcos because it didn’t please whatever we felt to be discussed,” said Abunda.
“Kung naniniwala kang dapat maparusahan sila, palagay ko malalim… Go to our justice system, go to our history. Ano ba talaga ang nangyari?” he added.
