Yet Another Political Melodrama

American writer Mark Twain said, “History does not repeat itself, at best it sometimes ryhmes.” Interesting to know that about ten years ago, then former Philippine president Joseph Estrada became the center of the spotlight for being the first Filipino president to be impeached with full media coverage. Today, ten years after the impeachment trial that sparked EDSA Dos, another impeachment trial is at hand – that of the country’s highest magistrate, Chief Justice Corona. All cameras zoom in, all pens lead to the paper, and all eyes on print and broadcast media, looking into the various angles of yet another melodrama in Philippine History.
