ABS-CBN news anchor Korina Sanchez bashed CNN broadcast journalist Anderson Cooper over his critical reporting on the government’s slow response to the aftermath of Yolanda in Tacloban City: “Itong si Anderson Cooper, sabi wala daw government presence sa Tacloban. Mukhang hindi niya alam  ang sinasabi niya. (This Anderson Cooper. He said there was no government presence in Tacloban. It seems he doesn’t know what he is saying).”

In his eponymously named program on CNN aired live from Manila, Cooper said of Sanchez’ earlier remarks: “A radio broadcaster named Korina Sanchez has taken issue with some of my reporting.  She also is not just a radio broadcaster; she also happens to be the wife of the Interior Minister (Secretary Manuel Roxas II) who is overseeing the relief effort on the ground. Miss Sanchez seems to be under the mistaken impression that I said I saw no presence of Philippine government on the ground in Tacloban. I never said that.” 

Cooper said that as a journalist, he made it a point to be as “accurate as possible” in his reports to “help people on the ground become more efficient.”

He added: “Accuracy is what we care most about here at CNN. I saw the work being done and the work that is not being done. All week long, in every report we have done, we have shown how strong the Filipinos are. The Filipino people, the people of Tacloban and Samar and Cebu, and all these places where so many have died, they are strong—not just to have survived this storm, but they are strong to have survived the aftermath of this storm. They have survived for a week now, often with very little food, with very little water, with very little medical attention. Can you imagine the strength it takes to be living in a shack, to be living, sleeping on the streets next to the body of your dead children? Can you imagine that strength? I can’t and I have seen that strength day in and day out in the Philippines and we honor them day in day out here in the Philippines, and we honor them with every broadcast that we make.” 



Janet Lim-Napoles repeatedly invoked  her rights against self-incrimination when  Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago asked if she  knew  the three senators who have been dragged into the  P10 billion  “pork barrel” scam. 


But Napoles’ invocation of such  right did not sit well with  the lady senator  when Napoles  used it again to the question  whom she had been talking to  about the plunder case  filed against her at the Office of the Ombudsman.

“I invoke my right against self-incrimination,’’ Napoles said.

“Sino lang kausap mo , I invoke my right? Aaah..”   said Santiago, who was apparently getting impatient with Napoles.



While inebriated, Anne Curtis allegedly uttered this sentence, and although Phoemela Baranda claims that these words were never said, we won’t be surprised if scriptwriters milk it for all its worth in teleseryes and films.
 

 Willie Revillame’s show on TV5, “Wowowillie,” took an unexpected turn of events on February 28 when Willie himself strode on stage to tell off co-hosts Ethel Booba and Ate Gay.

You don't do that to me. Dahil ako binibigyan ko kayo ng pagkakataon sa buhay. I am the producer, I am the host, ako ang nag-iisip ng ika-gaganda. Ang iniisip ko dito ay publiko at hindi kayo.”


Vice Ganda mentioned the name of Vice-President Jejomar Binay's daughter when asked if he has any plans to pursue a career in public service.

"Gusto ko president ako agad. Yung wala kang background, pero mataas agad, parang 'yung mga pulitiko lang ngayon. Walang background, pero senador agad."



Interior Secretary Manuel "Mar" Roxas II criticized Tacloban Mayor Alfred Romualdez for supposedly releasing a “malicious video” that caught him saying: “You have to understand. You are a Romualdez and the President is an Aquino.”

Romualdez and cousin Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr asked why Roxas even brought up last names during a disaster. Crying before a congressional hearing, Romualdez accused the national government of slow and inadequate response. He also questioned the need for a document for the national government to step in.

“Why is it illegal? As far as I know, the President is the president of the Philippines and he is also president of Tacloban City.” 


During his concert last May 17, Vice Ganda painted hypothetical scenarios of how several famous personalities would act if they were “boldstars”.  

"Ang hirap nga lang kung si Jessica Soho magbo-bold. Kailangan gang rape lagi. Sasabihin ng rapist, 'Ipasa ang lechon.' Sasabihin naman ni Jessica, 'Eh nasaan yung apple?'"


"Ang sinasabi namin sa kanila na 'actually, hindi naman kailangan ng nurse na matapos ang BSN (BS Nursing). Kasi itong mga nurses, gusto lang nilang maging room nurse," Cynthia Villar said, as she responded to a question posed by Winnie Monsod.

"(Kasi) sa Amerika or sa other countries, ano lang sila parang mag-aalaga... Hindi naman kailangan silang maging ganong kagaling," she said in Pagsubok sa mga Kandidato aired over GMA News TV.


American author Dan Brown, who shot to fame with the first three installments of his wildly popular series of novels starring the fictional professor Robert Langdon (“Angels & Demons,” “The Da Vinci Code” and “The Lost Symbol”), called Manila the 'gates of hell.'

One character, Sienna Brooks, is a sexy 32-year-old English doctor who happens to be bald (because of a neurological condition). Brown describes her experience of joining a humanitarian mission to Manila, only to be shocked by its apocalyptic poverty and then raped by local ruffians.

“I’ve run through the gates of hell,” she said.


Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago shot down the statement of Enrile:  

"If it is the position of Sen. Enrile that a sperm has life, of course, if a sperm has life, then that life should be protected. Therefore, in logic, when a person masturbates and releases all those sperms for nothing, he commits murder? Let's think about that."



 Nancy Binay referred to a recent statement made by actress-host Kris Aquino, who has expressed interest in running for public office in the 2016 elections.

"Kung si Kris Aquino nga, sinabi niya mag-o-on-the-job training siya to prepare herself, ako I've been doing the on-the-job training for more than 20 years, with my mother, with my father, lalung-lalo na ngayon na naging vice-president na 'yung father ko."



The Pork Barrel Scam is hands down the issue of the year and even before it was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, a lot of politicians were already giving their statements about their PDAF. Amidst the call for its abolishment, Representative Mercado said that if the people want the pork barrel removed, they shouldn’t ask the government for help.
 

GMA anchor Arnold Clavio spoke with Atty. Alfredo Villamor on the phone regarding businesswoman Janet Napoles, the alleged mastermind of the controversial P10-billion pork barrel scam. 

Clavio blurted:   “Eh sino po ba ang dapat naming kausapin dito? Panira ka ng araw eh. Tatawa-tawa ka pa! Sana pala hindi na namin kayo…salamat po, wala po akong nakuha sa inyo”.



As the CEO of Rappler, Maria Ressa was pinged on Twitter by fellow journalists regarding an instance of plagiarism involving Rapplerette Kai Magsanoc and TV-5’s Bernard Testa. Ressa, limited by the 140 characters in Twitter, gave a brief reply, saying that social networks are public domain.
 

Kapuso journalist Jessica Soho breaks her silence on the issue by releasing an official statement.   

“Rape is not a joke and should never be material for a comedy concert. I thank all those who shared my hurt and expressed their support, but this should not be about me but about rape victims who suffer tremendously from this terrible crime. The horrors they go through are unspeakable and should never be taken lightly, especially by way of a cruel joke.”


After receiving flak for an article she wrote for The Philippine Star, Christine Bersola-Babao took to Twitter to remind people "not to shoot the messenger." She followed this with a non-apology, saying that she feels bad if she offended people but that she was only quoting Dr. Camille Garcia.
 

Freddie Aguilar stood his ground after news spread of his relationship with 16-year old girl . It was the girl who pursued him, he said, and he was not aware she was 16 until they fell in love.


Host-actress Kris Aquino announced her resignation from all her shows following the controversies she and her former husband James Yap are currently embroiled in. 

During a live interview with “TV Patrol,” an emotional Aquino told anchor Ted Failon that she must do what’s best for her son, James "Bimby" Yap Jr., even if it means sacrificing her lucrative career.  

“I’m giving up my shows. Hindi ko sinasabi 'yan just so that I can say na I’m the one making the bigger sacrifice. Tinatalikuran ko ang mundo na kinilala ko na bumuhay sa akin dahil higit doon sa karera ko, mas mahal ko ang anak ko.”

It’s December and she is still on TV.


"Heart does not have a mature mind and still thinks like a young girl. She is easily swayed by people who prey on her insecurities and lack of confidence." - Cecilia Ongpauco, describing her daughter Heart Evangelista during a press conference.


"You are a liar, Gretchen. Many of your preys will attest to that soon.That is the syle that you use when you want to play with other people's lives!"  

In a statement published by entertainment journalist Ricky Lo in The Philippine Star, Inday Barretto blew her top amid reports of the ongoing feud among her daughters Gretchen, Marjorie and Claudine, supposedly over the entry of Julia Barretto in Star Magic, the talent development arm of ABS-CBN.



In the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda and allegations that the government's response was "too slow," award-winning movie director Peque Gallaga has written a scathing "open letter" to the government.
