I owe a big debt of gratitude to my Filipino friend, Walter, from the Inside Fights message board for passing me this information:
The Filipino media was indeed at the Los Angeles press conference for the Floyd Mayweather-Shane Mosley bout. Walter confirmed this himself and offered video evidence of the ABS-CBN (The Philippine’s largest multi-media network) having full access to the press conference and even asking Mayweather assistant, Leonard Ellerbe, some questions.
Also, if you go to the ABS-CBN website, you will see full coverage of the press conference.
The lunk-head who originally made these bogus claims needs to seriously be cut out of the public discourse and fully discredited for this malicious and premeditated attack on another person’s character and well-being. The writer in question (who I won’t mention by name since he gets a penny per click at The Examiner) has officially graduated to the bottom of the scum pit.
Here’s the video in question, jump to the 1:46 mark and you will clearly see the ABS-CBN mic on display while Ellerbe answers away with no problem :
I just received an email from Filipino journalist, Simeon Vergara, who was at the press conference in question…
His account of the goings on backs up publicist, Kelly Swanson’s side of the story 100%. Give it a read here:
DEFINITELY NO DISCRIMINATION AGAINST FILIPINO MEDIA
Ok, so I think we all see the truth now…
