MANILA, Philippines – Former vice president and now TV Patrol anchor Noli de Castro is again in hot water.
ABS-CBN’s network Ombudsman has received a letter from a concerned citizen from Biliran urging the broadcasting giant to suspend and investigate de Castro.
The letter sender, Victor A. Del Rosario of Naval, Biliran, and also a media practitioner, said ABS-CBN should look into the critique of President Benigno Aquino III against de Castro.
Aquino, invited as the guest of honor at the 25th anniversary celebration of ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol at Manila Hotel last Friday, used the occasion to attack de Castro.
He said negativism in media was holding back the country’s progress.
In remarks that caused an uneasy silence among the party crowd, Aquino singled out the TV Patrol anchor and former Vice President for undue negativism and voicing “baseless speculations.”
He minced no words in saying that many of the problems he faced were inherited from the previous administration of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and De Castro as Vice President.
Aquino came prepared with examples of De Castro’s alleged bias. He recalled a news report about the rescue of a child by the National Bureau of Investigation wherein De Castro quipped that the rescue may have been a set-up.
In his letter, del Rosario urged ABS-CBN to suspend de Castro and launched an investigation into the President’s complaint.
ABS-CBN and de Castro are yet to comment on the letter.
