Senator Grace Poe possibly in violation of the law due to financial interests in ABS-CBN!

We’ve been citing the impropriety in Senator Grace Poe’s leading a Senate “inquiry” into the ABS-CBN franchise renewal “issue”. However, it seems that by merely being a Senator, Poe may already be in violation of the law. In his recent article, Manila Times columnist Bobi Tiglao points out that the Constitution forbids senators from having […]

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 […]

Grace Poe and ABS-CBN President and CEO Carlo Katigbak are cronies!

A photo making the rounds on the Net shows Senator Grace Poe and her mom Susan Roces together with ABS-CBN President and CEO Carlo Katigbak in what looks like a social gathering. This further highlights the whole problem with the recently-concluded Senate “inquiry” into issues surrounding the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN which Poe led. She […]

Senate “inquiry” headed by Grace Poe gave ABS-CBN a platform for emotional blackmail

It was like letting lose a cat in a cage full of mice. No less than Senator Bong Go was moved by the Atenista English and grace of ABS-CBN President and CEO Carlo Katigbak to “appeal to President Rodrigo Duterte” to renew the network’s franchise “for the sake of its 11,000 workers”. ABS-CBN, after all, […]

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 […]

Senate “inquiry” into the ABS-CBN franchise renewal issue will likely achieve NOTHING!

One wonders what the Senate “inquiry” into the plight of the embattled ABS-CBN network will actually achieve. According to House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, the House of Representatives have more “urgent” matters to tackle and this backlog means ABS-CBN will be an agenda for them “in May at the earliest”. Unless the Senate is in […]

Grace Poe is not fit to head the Senate inquiry on ABS-CBN because she is in bed with them!

The mother of all conflicts-of-interest undermines the impending Senate inquiry on the renewal of the ABS-CBN franchide. Senator Grace Poe who will head the inquiry claims it is all “in aid of legislation”. It seems, however, that it is all in aid of her side hustle. Poe comes from a family of showbiz stars and […]

How can Florin “Pilo” Hilbay be an effective senator if he cannot handle dissent?

Florin “Pilo” Hilbay’s only platform for running for a Senate seat is his having topped the Bar exam. And yellows like Jover Laurio are so impressed that he topped it while having a girlfriend on the side. That’s how shallow they are. They assume everyone else is impressed by people who can memorise Philippine laws. […]

Dishonest Rappler headline misleads readers into thinking Philippine Senate supports “senator” Antonio Trillanes

Grammatically correct but, in intent, baldly misleading. A Rappler report headlined “Senators praise judge’s ‘courage’ in junking Trillanes arrest” seemingly aims to lead its readers to believe that a majority of Philippine senators harbour favourable sentiments to the plight of their embattled colleague “senator” Antonio Trillanes. The report, however only cites the statements of two […]

Arrest warrant for Trillanes’s non-bailable Oakwood Mutiny offense out possibly today!

A little birdie (more like an extinct dodo) is screeching about the large police presence around the Senate on standby in case the much-awaited second warrant of arrest for mutineer-turned-senator Antonio Trillanes comes into effect. Well, what else would one do given Trillanes is being made out to be some sort of dodoic “hero” by […]
