Aquino Slams Kabayan

To everyone’s surprise, President Benigno S. Aquino criticized former Vice President Noli “Kabayan” De Castro in front of ABS-CBN executives including chairman and CEO Gabby Lopez, some Cabinet officials, and ABS-CBN employees durng TV Patrol’s 25th Anniversary celebration party where he was invited as special guest.

I agree with what Aquino said regarding De Castro. I watch TV Patrol (better compared to the other channel’s news program) but always get turned off by the anchor’s sarcastic and off-tangent remarks. Sometimes he does not listen to the reporters since he asks questions where the answers have already been cited in the reports. I long for straight news program rather than the sensationalized tabloid-style reporting. The comments portion at the end of the show has no place in a news program.

However, Mr. President, stop throwing tantrums at your detractors. Just remain strong and prove to the citizens of this country that you can accomplish everything in your agenda. You already have accomplished a lot of things during the past 2 years so you don’t need to rant your critics and get unethical. You still have 4 more years, so just continue what you’re doing.
