I always check the comments section on news sites that have them. They help give me an arbitrary and unbalanced peek at how your average Filipino thinks.

Presidential son and Congressman Mikey Arroyo may have bitten off more than he can chew with his recent comments regarding the proposed regulation of the intertubes.
With at least half of the posts on Sen. Manuel Villar, Jr.’s pre-campaign campaign website blatantly singing him praises, there really is one logical conclusion to make.
Of course, there are also legitimate posts on his website. Like this one that reduced me to inconsolable weeping :
