2007 Philippine Election scenes: What’s inside the ballot box?

TV reporters usually gives live update on their respective location. Watching Hatol ng Bayan, the joint election coverage of government’s stations in the Philippines (NBN 4, RPN 9 and IBC 13), a certain correspondent from Cavite irked me a little.

So okay, I understand ballot boxes were found near a place where the actual canvassing will take place. Both lawyers of the candidates agreed to open the boxes. Boxes, opened. But the VTR was cut short and the reporter continue to finish his spiels.

The program anchor asks, “so what’s inside the ballot boxes?”
The reporter tells the whole report again.
Anchor interrupts, “I overheard its the 2004 election returns. What’s inside the box?”
Anchor’s question confirmed directly by the reporter it was the election returns of 2004.

I’m guilty of it. Giving a different response to a question or not being straightforward. Sometimes we just can’t help it.

The guy’s timing is bad. Maybe he was not properly cued. He also buckles (am I using the right word?). He reminds me of Michael Fajatin of GMA 7 in SAKSI.
