Occam’s Razor

Idiotic Depths

And I thought this issue’s over! Until of course Manila Standard Today chose inaction as its course of, well, action. To begin with, it’s really frustrating that Manila Standard Today chose to be silent throughout the course of this issue. Even worse, they are going to run Malu Fernandez’s column again. It seems to me that their silence is sending a very clear message: For MST, they did no wrong.

And this is where I have a problem. But let’s play Occam’s Razor:

Q: What respectable publication will publish such garbage?

A: If they had sensible editors who actually read articles before they print them, the article wouldn’t have made it in print. Take your pick: No editors or Stupid editors. Given the choices, it’s simply irresponsible journalism.

Q: What could the publishers of MST be thinking?

A: Why bother. It’s their irresponsibility and tastelessness that caused all this shit. You expect them to get right and clean after their mess? Irresponsible and tasteless publications don’t have that capability. Apparently, MST IS irresponsible and tasteless.

Q: So what do we do now?

A: They have sunk themselves so low in their inaction. Do you want to pull them out and stage a fight? Don’t. Let them sink. Don’t buy MST. Tell your friends to do the same. If you know advertizers who do business with them, convince them to pull out. But don’t ever expect them to grow up. Keep it simple. Idiocy tends to be the same poison that kills the idiot.

Sure, as an organization they have the right to choose if they fire her or not. But as publishers, for them to go all mute and dismissive of a fault that is rightly theirs and their writer’s is simply unacceptable. In this respect, MST is therefore worse than Malu Fernandez. Shame!
