GMA Network strongly denies the accusations made by Mr. Donard Duane L. Nojas that RGMA Bacolod hired ABS-CBN's informant Toto Aliguin or anyone to look for panel homes in Bacolod City and that it conducted special operations to increase its ratings. These accusations come from a disgruntled former employee of RGMA. Nojas, a former Program Director of RGMA-AM Bacolod, was terminated (on March 20, 2007) ... for violation of company policies, serious misconduct, gross neglect of duty, and loss of confidence." GMA-7 also said that Nojas was found guilty of sexual harassment during his stint as program director. In addition, he was also discovered to have anchored for a rival station, a clear breach of company policies.
One would think that ABS-CBN could do better, but that's giving them too much credit at this point. ABS-CBN News has lost all credibility with me. This "witness" will not hold up in court, and this an orchestrated smear campaign to discredit AGB Nielsen. TV Patrol is passing this hearsay account as news and fact.
So wait, when was the cheating done according to ABS-CBN's own case versus AGB? July to September 2007
When was Donard Duane L. Nojas fired? March 20, 2007
