GMA-7 Press Release

28 September 2008 on GMA 7

The historic television event that may never happen again.

In Southeast Asia, only one country has four living presidents — the Philippines. On Sunday, all four presidents appear alongside each other in a television first that may not happen again. Newsmakers: The GMA News and Public Affairs Special is the show to watch on Sept 28.

How did the country’s most influential names get to the highest seat of power? What did their victories mean for us? How well did each leader live up to their common promise of a better future for all? Find out the answers for yourself as each president faces off with a pillar of GMA News.

The five pillars of GMA News and Public Affairs: Mike Enriquez, Vicky Morales, Jessica Soho, Arnold Clavio, and Mel Tiangco
Jessica Soho discovers the feisty side of Corazon Cojuangco Aquino. The once reluctant presidential candidate, Cory shares her secret in overcoming her struggles as wife to a political prisoner and as leader to a healing nation. In a rare candid moment, Cory talks about the two men who disappointed her while she was president.

Arnold Clavio is in for a surprise as Fidel V. Ramos shows facets of his image rarely seen in public. The former General reveals the real reasons he rallied in EDSA twice to oust two sitting presidents.

Meanwhile, Joseph Estrada tells Vicky Morales his biggest regret as president. Several times during his interview, the former actor related his experiences to stories in the Bible. Erap discloses whom among his friends he considers his own Judas.

Mel Tiangco is welcomed in Malacañang by the incumbent Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. The elusive president opens up about the lessons she learned from her father, who was hailed in the 60s as The Incorruptible President.

Also in Newsmakers is Mike Enriquez’ encounter with former First Lady Imelda Marcos. The person most privy to the longest-serving Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, Imelda reflects on the legacy of her husband. Asked about the perceived excessiveness during their time, Imelda insists that in beauty nothing is too excessive.

A year after the idea was pitched and months after trailing the presidents, Newsmakers: the GMA News and Public Affairs Special finally airs on September 28, Sunday at 10.30 p.m. on GMA 7.

  3. “The Disadvantages of microchip in the future”

    I am one of the students who know the truth about the disadvantage
    of microchip. I know itâ€s sounds funny but this is not a prank. I am
    actually telling the truth. My teacher told me about the microchip that will affect millions of people here on earth. He told me that microchip is the biggest plan and a prophecy that will be fulfilled someday. And this is the most awaited part of satan.

    Donâ€t you all know that these scientist are being used by satan. Once
    this prophecy is fulfilled many souls will be put into “HELL” because
    microchip is actually a mark of 666 that can only be put in the forehead
    and in the right arm. If you really wonâ€t believe me why donâ€t you try to read
    the Bible “Revelations chapter 13:16-18 in King James Version old and
    new testament. And we all know that Bible will always tell the truth because
    this is “THE WORD OF GOD”.

    Not only that this prophecy is called raptured. To those people who accepts
    JESUS CHRIST as their personal savior their soul will be in HEAVEN and
    they will not be affected in the prophecy and to those people who are
    unbelievers for sure they are the witness and the victims of these

    And if you really wanted to know the entire details read the “Bible” and
    you will know the truth and you will also found out all the lies behind the
    “Roman Catholic Churches”. Donâ€t you know they lied about everything and
    I mean everything. They lied about the statue like for example here in
    Philippines, Santo Nino. And in other places we all know about the statue
    of Saint Therese and all kinds of statue. This statue are called “graven
    image”. One of the statements in the Bible said, they have eyes but they
    see not, nose have they but they smell not, ears have they but they hear
    not, feet have they but they walk not, hands have they but they feel not.
    Those are the statements about the statue , the false god that almost
    all of us believe in.

    I may be a student and not as much wise as you but I am wise in knowing
    all the truths and I am very thankful that God help me opened my eyes to

    To those scientist who are really bold in
    knowing the truth and not believing GOD
    shame on you for you all know without
    God you donâ€t have that knowledge!!! And
    I hate it when you also donâ€t believe in

    And to those people who are not yet saved. Go and pray
    to GOD tell Him that you are really sorry for all your sins
    accept Him as you personal savior put Him in your hearts.
    And for sure GOD will forgive you.
