A former news reporter of ABS-CBN criticized one of the current Kapamilya journalists, Karen Davila, after her interview with Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo about the franchise issue of her network and press freedom.
On his Facebook post, veteran journalist Jay Sonza couldn’t stop himself from criticizing Davila and questioning her capabilities as a broadcaster after what he saw during the interview.
Sonza said that Davila may not impress the first generation executives and reporters of ABS-CBN if she became a journalist in the same era as them.
“I am sorry to say this. Itong talk program host na ito ang pinakab*** at pinakat***** sa kasaysayan ng broadcasting, radyo man o telebisyon. Shunga. latang walang laman. burak ang laman ng bungo nito. nuknukan sa katangahan,” Sonza said.
“Kung inabutan ni Karen sina Ben Aniceto, Rick Tierro, iyong yumaong tatay ni Leah Navarro. Lito Balquiedra Jr. at Orly Mercado – mga betereno ng abs, 1st day, last day ito matapos masabihan ng you’re fired,” he added.
Davila is being criticized and accused of trying to outsmart Spokesperson Panelo who’s known as one of the top lawyers in the country.
In another post, Sonza gave a tip to people who are dreaming to become a talk program presenter.
“Here’s my professional tip to budding and would be talk program presenter on radio and television – study, study harder and study some more the subject of discussion/issues and/or presentation. Otherwise, you will appear like that idi*t Karen Davila on ANC, SkyCable this morning with one of the country’s top litigation lawyer in Salvador Panelo,” he said.
Davila’s interview with Panelo has gone viral yesterday after the two almost engaged in a heated debate about press freedom and the ABS-CBN franchise.
During the discussion, Panelo insisted that President Rodrigo Duterte is not pressuring the Congress to delay the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN.
He also distanced the President to the quo warranto petition filed by Solicitor General Jose Calida against the television network giant.
Panelo then complained of how some reporters are seems trying to blame President Duterte for what’s currently happening in ABS-CBN.
“Eh sino nga ang nag bibigay ng franchise o nag re-renew edi Congress, bakit mo sinisisi ang Presidente, wala ngang kinalaman ang Presidente doon, tanungin mo kung bakit galit si Presidente, sasagutin kita,” Panelo told Davila.
