who is the idiot speech writer who wrote the plagiarized ateneo speech of manny pangilinan? : the manny pangilinan speechgate
this is also one of the most important questions regarding this speechgate – who is the idiot speech writer who wrote manny pangilinan’s plagiarized speech at the ateneo commencement exercise? please post in the comment section if you know who this speech writer is.
we are sure this speech writer has been fired by manny pangilinan but we like to know who this person is. (also hope to the heavens that this speech writer did not graduate from the ateneo! we hate ironies of this kind!)
what was this speech writer thinking? or perhaps the more apt question – why did this speech writer did not think at all?
the speech actually has two parts – the inspirational part and the tidbits about manny pangilinan’s life. obviously pangilinan read and wrote parts of the speech as it included personal anecdotes about his life.
pangilinan must have not known and he was probably not told parts of it were plagiarized where some were almost exact copies from other people’s speeches. we wonder if that was how it happened?
why did the speech writer not re-write them? he/she could have just picked up the thoughts but he could have made an effort to re-write them. was that lack of time? laziness?
the speech writer must have known this will be delivered at the ateneo. ateneo students are not exactly known for being naive. most probably all the graduating class at the ateneo owned a laptop and has internet connection. for sure at least one of them must have read some of these speeches where they were plagiarized from.
we are also very amused that pangilinan found out about the plagiarized parts of his speech at facebook. it is a very modern way of finding out about it. this is the equivalent of your home sex video circulating in the internet (hello, katrina halili? hayden kho?)
it made us wonder – what? manny pangilinan has a facebook account????
