  • Big Brother n. authoritatrian leader and invader of privacy

Curiouser and Curiouser

Here's another take on just what happened between ABS-CBN reporter Dolan Castro and the cops.

A driver for ABS-CBN was caught driving drunk by nearby cops the night before Castro's fateful visit. The cops extract a confession from their catch. Castro shows up at the police station presumably the following morning and tries to, er, influence the cops holding the drunk driver to let him go. The cops say "No way" and Castro screams harrassment, bringing the force of the fourth estate behind him, and causing the concerned cops to be relieved of their jobs.

True? I hope not, for Castro's sake.
