Estrada blasts media for ‘selective’ reporting, blue ribbon panel for ‘selective’ probe
MANILA, Philippines —Senator Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada lambasted anew on Wednesday the alleged “selective” reporting of the media and the “selective” investigation by certain agencies, including the Senate blue ribbon committee.
Taking the floor, Estrada fired at the media, saying it has been selective in its reporting of the “pork barrel” scam.
The senator noted how the media only focused on him, and senators Juan Ponce Enrile and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.
The Commission on Audit , the Department of Justice and the Senate blue ribbon committee, he said, were “selective “ in their separate investigations on the scam.
Estrada also repeatedly denied any wrongdoings but at the same expressed readiness to voluntarily surrender to authorities once a warrant of arrest issued against him.
