Senator, now presidential candidate, Bato dela Rosa kills it in interview with Karen Davila!

Watch Karen Davila’s interview of Senator Bato dela Rosa. He speaks in a language accessible to ordinary Filipinos and explains his position using simple but on-point words on hairy matters like President Rodrigo Duterte’s “war on drugs” and the threat of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to come to the Philippines to investigate “human rights” […]

Karen Davila and Bernadette Sembrano Aguinaldo in pink: BIASED “news” anchors?

Posing in pink with colleague Bernadette Sembrano Aguinaldo then issuing a disclaimer on Instagram, “no malice please”. ABS-CBN News anchor Karen Davila thinks she can simply plug what had become a highly-politicised colour then insult the intelligence of her Filipino audience by claiming that “Pink just looks good on TV”. We all know of course […]

Isko Moreno runs out of English in interview with Karen Davila on ANC

This is painful to watch. ANC anchor Karen Davila knows very well that Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is not a good English speaker. Why does she force the issue by continuing to conduct the interview in English? Because it’s on ANC? On the other hand, Isko falls into the same trap. He forces himself to […]

Brouhaha over Nayong Pilipino mega vax center fueled by dishonest journalism and Karen Davila’s DUMB interview questions

Why can’t Duterte fix this simple problem within his own turf? That critical projects to build large vaccination facilities got this far and became an unncessary PR problem explains why we are in this mess. Sheer incompetence! Do you think government officials actually use their heads? Nope. The default mindset of the bureaucrats is they […]

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. Poe clearly stammered her way through an interview with Davila as she defended the exercise that all but gave ABS-CBN […]

President Duterte should distance himself from Senator Bong Go

The top executives of ABS-CBN conducted themselves with dignity, grace, and respect during today’s Senate inquiry into its franchise renewal imbroglio. With that as his backdrop, Senator Bong Go stood out in stark contrast. In one misguided statement, Go did the administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte an astounding disservice. Sen. Bong Go says he […]

According to Karen Davila, ABS-CBN is ENTITLED to priority treatment!

The more ABS-CBN top TV personality tweets, the more she gets her employer the bad PR they don’t need nowadays. In her latest statement, Karen Davila suggests that ABS-CBN is entitled to special treatment from no less than Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. YES…there are separation of powers, but the TRUTH of the matter is: “Congress […]

Panelo explained to Davila MANY TIMES why Congress was not sorting out the ABS-CBN case and she STILL doesn’t get it!

Malacanang spokesperson Salvador Panelo’s explanation to ABS-CBN “veteran” telejournalist Karen Davila’s repeated questions on why Congress was sitting on her employer’s case is simple and consistent: that it is Congress’s sole business and none of Malacanang’s. She should, instead, ask them herself. Panelo speaks only for Malacanang and not Congress. The legislature is an independent […]

Karen Davila, like Maria Ressa, was unable to prove that “press freedom” is “under attack”!

The biggest takeaway from Karen Davila’s cringe-inspiring interview of Malacanang Spokesperson Salvador Panelo is not Panelo’s wearing dark glasses as “investigative journalist” Raissa Robles points out. Rather, it is Davila’s failure to respond intelligently when Panelo challenged her to back her assertion that ABS-CBN’s legal troubles constitute an “attack on press freedom”. Interestingly enough, the […]
