MANILA, Philippines – Nakiisa si House Speaker Martin Romualdez sa pagdadalamhati ng industriya ng media at iba pang nagmamahal sa pumanaw na beteranong brodkaster ng GMA-7 na si Mike Enriquez.
“The industry and media network GMA-7 have just lost a broadcasting giant. The death of Mike Enriquez has left a void in the industry and in his beloved network his colleagues would struggle to fill. His absence will be felt for a long time,” pahayag ni Romualdez.
Inilarawan ni Speaker Romualdez si Enriquez bilang isang walang kapagurang media practitioner, isang anti-corruption, anti-abuse, at anti-wrongdoing crusader.
“He was a champion of the oppressed, the abused. His docudrama ‘Imbestigador’ was his vehicle for exposing corruption and mischief. His now famous punchline ‘Hindi kita tatantanan!’ sent an ominous warning to wayward and abusive public officials, policemen, other public servants, and other citizens with influence,” dagdag pa nito.
“I and my colleagues in the House extend our sincerest condolences to Mr. Enriquez’s family, loved ones, his media colleagues, and those who loved him. Our prayers and thoughts are with them at this most difficult time,” pagtatapos pa ni Speaker Romualdez. Gail Mendoza
