Stars shine the brightest this yuletide season as ABS-CBN officially kicked off its 2010 Christmas campaign last Thursday (Nov 4) with President Noynoy Aquino as guest of honor.

  3. Well it’s an honor for ABS-CBN to have Mr. President on 2010’s Christmas celebration. PGMA is to GMA as PNOY is to ABS! Nice!

  4. TAMA ANG KAPAL NG MUKHA NG MGA TGA ABS CBN ANG PAPANGIT NG PALABAS ANG GANDA NG PLBAS NG TV 5 AT GMA 7

  5. Bagay lang yan kay madam Imelda Marcos…kung tutuusin kulang pa nga na kabayaran yan sa mga ninakaw at winaldas na yaman ng Pilipinas nila noon….hanggang ngayon binabayaran pa rin natin ang utang na hindi naman natin inutang sa world bank..tayo ang naghihirap dahil sa kanila.

  6. Masyadong malisyoso talaga ang iba dyan..invited lang lang yung tao sa celebrasyon…nag generalized na agad ng idea….utak talangka talaga naman…haayyyzzz…

  7. asA c sarah g. s kapamilya station ID

  8. …..until today the Marcoses were not proven guilty sa sinasabing mga ill-gotten wealth….kaya halos lahat ng kaso ni Madam Marcos, even sa amerika ay abswelto dahil wala naman ebidensiyang maipakita ang abolished PCGG….kaya nga iyong mga shoes, gowns, jewelries na naiwan ng mga Marcoses were looted by certain prominent people during Aquino administration…

  9. know the truth // November 7, 2010 at 7:55 pm //

    alamin nyo muna ang kasaysayan bago kayo magreact jan ng bonggang-bongga. ang ABS-CBN kc ang isa sa mga Networks na nanindigan laban sa diktador ng panahon ng Martial Law, samantalang ang GMA ay isa sa mga tuta ni Marcos na ninakaw nya sa mga Stewarts na tunay na may-ari at ginawang dummies sina duavit, jimenez, at gozon. kaya nga kung naaalala nyo pa nagsampa ng kaso si Irene Marcos laban sa GMA para bawiin ang mahigit 30% na share na ayon sa kanya ay hindi na binalik sa kanila ng mga dummies at may kasulatan sila na nagpapatunay dito. sa hirap at ginhawa, tunay at tapat na serbisyong Pinoy ang hatid ng ABS-CBN samantalang ang GMA marumi ang pinanggalingan dahil galing sa nakaw at hanggang ngayon patuloy pa rin sa pandaraya sa ratings. once a cheater, always a cheater!
