yeah, yeah… i’m writing this to generate traffic. but it might also be a secret SWS survey to see how many netizens are actually interested with the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona. *wink* haha!
i’ve been reading a couple of articles saying that the proceedings are “irrelevant” to the poor and others say that people are glued to their TV sets to watch it. one problem, though, is that aside from the legal jargon (sometimes in Latin, a.k.a. “gobbledygook”), the proceedings are in English. so what could a normal citizen do?
i say, stay glued to your TV sets. if you can’t, wait for the evening news. despite the urgent issue of SOPA and PIPA, i’m not sure how much we Filipinos could influence US legislature. stick to the impeachment trial and try to learn another thing or two… e.g. subpoena duces tecum vs. subpoena ad testificandum, relevance of SALN, what is betrayal of public trust, etc. i hope that TV networks and the news outfits could explain these, specially now that the big networks have their own news channels now.
nevertheless, here’s the link to the Senate Live Video Streaming of the Corona impeachment. so far, it’s been buffering. i’m not sure how PREGINET is holding the traffic.
update: GMA News streams Day 4 of hearing here.
