In my previous entry, there are two mistakes I’ve corrected:
1. Dan Mariano explained the following: “The Web site abs-cbnNEWS.com is operated by ABS-CBN Interactive, a subsidiary of ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. While the Web site works closely with the network, it is technically not a part of it. The column I write is for The Manila Times, which has a content-provider agreement with ABS-CBN Interactive. This is why it is reproduced in abs-cbnNEWS.com.
If you come right down to it, I am not an employee of the network ABS-CBN Corporation. Yes, I lauded the internal investigation on Julius Babao; I did so as a Times columnist.” My apologies for the error. All along I presumed Dan was the Editor-in-Chief of abs-cbnNEWS.com which I also presumed was an integral part of the ABS-CBN television operations. The distinctions Dan explained are important. For example, Inq7.net is an independent company which is jointly owned by the Philippine Daily Inquirer and GMA Television, but it has its own editorial team and policies.
2. The story from Inq7.net about the survey did not originally come from the Philippine Daily Inquirer. It was Inq7.net’s own story (it has its own set of reporters, too).
