Grace Poe conflict-of-interest laid BARE in interview with Karen Davila on ABS-CBN Senate “inquiry”

It seems ABS-CBN had no choice but to face the music on the issue of the bald conflict-of-interest in Senator Grace Poe’s heading of the Senate “inquiry” into the plight of the giant media conglomerate.
