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 […]

US Senate resolution calling on its former colony to free Leila De Lima proves the Philippines is still a colony!

After kicking out the United States’ armed forces from its shores back in the 1990s to prove a point, the Yellowtards now disprove that point by rallying behind the words of some sort of “resolution” issued by the United States Senate. Glad to see Senate Foreign Relations Committee pass @SenMarkey's resolution, that I proudly cosponsored, […]

Rappler and Inquirer in HOT water as Malacanang spox Salvador Panelo files libel raps

Did Rappler publish a libelous statement against Malacanang spokesman Salvador Panelo? The mystery persists. A statement posted on Twitter by Rappler in the form of an image outlined their response to the complaint. For its part, the Inquirer, contacted by GMA News for its report on the story has declined to comment. “We will wait […]

Can the Philippines cut ties with China? Yes it can!

According to Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo, the Philippine government is considering the option to “cut off diplomatic relations” with China if it is found that a Chinese vessel intentionally collided with a Philippine fishing boat and and then left its crew of 22 as their vessel sank. Cutting ties with China will be a good […]
