Governor Amado T. Espino Jr., Espino accused several media practitioners who have been critical of him as paid hacks of his political opponent.

In radio interview over Bombo Radyo Dagupan, Espino said the he believed Yolanda Fuertes of the Philippine Daily Inquirer and Virgilio Maganes of the Northern Watch, a local weekly newspaper, have a personal grudge against him.

“….Dalawa lang naman ang talagang galit sa akin diyan eh….Hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit eh … yang si Yolly Fuertes at iyang si (Virgilio) Maganes…mulat sapul galit sa akin ang dalawang iyan, ewan ko kung bakit?” Espino said.

Fuertes is the president of the National Union of Journalist of the Philippines Pangasinan Chapter.

Espino also said  that he should not be blamed if something bad happened to radio broadcasters such as Lina Cervantes, Tito Tamayo, Macky Delgado, Ike Palinar, Jessie Perez , Susan Yadao and Nora Dominguez.

“Iyang si Lina Cervantes, yan sina Tito (Tamayo), si Macky Pul..Delgado, sina Ike Palinar, Jessie Perez, Susan Yadao, Nora Dominguez ….yan yong mga ….. (inaudible)… ngayon ako ang Governor, baka kung may mangyari daw sa kanila, ako daw ang sisisihin …. para alam na raw nila kung sino ang huhulihin,” Espino said.

Although Espino claimed  that these  media practitioners have been deaf to his calls for fair reporting. But  he advised them to give the money’s worth paid them by their benefactor.

“Kung kayo ay nabayaran … uulitin ko …. Kung kayo ay nabayaran … sa estasyon, sa isang estasyon na pinanggagalingan ninyo at sweldohan kayo diyan, ikampanya ninyo ng husto ang tinutulungan ninyo …. sa akin ay walang problema yon … ang hinihiling ko lang … Huwag kayong manira ng inyong kapwa tao na sana ….pero alam kong bingi kayo sa mga bagay na ganyan,” Espino said.

“Uulitin ko ang mga sinabi ko sa inyo mga kaibigan…Kilala ko kayo mula ulo hanggang ibaba … magkakakilala tayo … huwag ninyong sobrahan ang pambababoy ninyo sa amin,” Espino said.
