Karen Davila opposes Rodrigo Duterte: Nothing justifies the killing of journalists

ABS-CBN anchorwoman Karen Davila on President-elect Rodrigo Duterte's stance that journalists who commit wrongdoings are understandably targets of assassination: "Nothing justifies the killing of journalists."


ABS-CBN news anchor Karen Davila refuses to accept President-elect Rodrigo Duterte’s justification that some slain journalists deserve to be assassinated for being corrupt and biased.

Stalwart supporters of President-elect Duterte were quick to defend him, claiming that certain news organizations have been biased with their reportage.

But whether or not some news headlines were sensationalized, Karen reiterated that the media killings should not be taken lightly.

Karen also weighed in on the catcalling incident, when President-elect Duterte wolf-whistled at GMA News reporter Mariz Umali during the same May 31 Davao presscon.

Karen stressed in her DZMM radio show that catcalling is never a compliment to women.

She also retweeted the dismayed statement of Mariz’s husband and fellow GMA News reporter, Raffy Tima, about the incident.

On the other hand, lifestyle host Daphne Oseña-Paez remarked about media’s supposed failure to highlight President-elect Duterte’s plan to cut down the red tape on government procedures.

In a separate Twitter post, Daphne cited a report that says President-elect Duterte is all for "freedom of expression" but with "responsibility."
