Philippines: After the Stampede

Filipino bloggers continue to be focused on the tragic deaths last weekend of over 70 people during a stampede in a crowd waiting to get into a popular TV game show. Divergent Poles has the weepy statements of the game show host, a TV network exec and the country's vice-president — a former TV host and anchor himself. Filipino Librarian directs her anger at a network employee who said it was the crowd's fault. There's more at the PCIJ blog, Manuel L. Quezon III and Howie Severino.
